To all interested parties,
Please consider this an invitation to qualify for the 2025 World Benchrest Team. Canada will be sending 3 teams of 4 shooters on each team. A total of 12 shooters will attend. As of now I will start collecting the names of anyone who wants to get on the qualifying roster for 2025. Cutoff will be Feb 29, 2024 to indicate your interest. If interested send me an email indicating your desire to join the qualifying process. It doesn?t cost anything and there is no harm if you change your mind later about qualifying. rickpollock@shaw.ca

Team Canada used First Choice Bore Solvent from Plenty O Patches, as did Team USA throughout the tournament. A great solvent made right here in Canada. Now that the Americans are using it, I expect Dean will be ramping up production!

We also used HWP barrels, another great made in Canada product.

March Scopes Canada is a terrific supporter of Team Canada and we are pleased to use their March 48X High Master on our rifles.
