Federal and CCI Sponsored Shooter Cole Busch Continues Strong in Steel Challenge Competitions

ANOKA, Minnesota - August 26, 2019 - Federal and CCI Ammunition sponsored shooter Cole Busch recently won two of the six divisions at the 2019 USPSA Area 5 Steel Challenge Championship at the Riley Conservation Club in Riley, Indiana. Those 1st place honors were in the Pistol Caliber Carbine Open and Rimfire Rifle Open Divisions. He took home 2nd or 3rd place medals in the other four divisions he shot.

Busch runs 115-grain 9mm Luger Federal Syntech Range in his pistol caliber carbine. The polymer-encapsulated bullet prevents copper and lead fouling, and combined with specialized clean-burning powder and the exclusive Catalyst lead-free primer, Syntech keeps his guns cleaner, longer. New for 2019, Federal now offers Syntech PCC, built to meet the exhaustive demands of fast-pace Pistol Caliber Carbine competitions, with flawless function in carbine platforms.

For rimfire rifle and pistol, Busch shoots CCI Clean-22 High Velocity 22 LR. These rounds use an exclusive polymer bullet coating to greatly reduce copper and lead fouling in the barrel—without leaving a residue. The loads feature a 40-grain round nose lead bullet with geometry that’s been optimized for accuracy. With dependable CCI priming and consistent propellant, Clean-22 provides flawless cycling through all 22 LR firearms, including semi-automatics.

“I use CCI 22 LR in my rimfire guns because its reliability and accuracy are flawless,” Busch said. “Their new Clean-22 gives me the confidence of knowing it will cycle every time, and the accuracy is amazing. I also use and trust CCI’s time-tested Mini-Mag 40-grain copper plated round nose during this competition as well. Both are high performers.”

Mini-Mag was CCI’s first 22 LR load and it’s still one of the most popular, offering unbeatable accuracy, high velocities, flat trajectories and superior reliability. The ammunition features CCI’s extremely reliable priming and specialized powders for clean, consistent ignition. It is also reliable to feed, flat shooting and highly accurate to maximize effective range
