The 2022 TANDEMKROSS Area 7 Steel Challenge Championships were held at the Pioneer Sportsmen Inc in Dunbarton, NH. In a Steel Challenge match, competitors shoot eight courses of fire, each having five steel targets as small as a 10” round plate, and up to a 18×24” rectangle. With competitors shooting out to 35-yards, plates are shot as fast as possible. Each stage is fired five times, except for the Outer Limits stages, which are shot four times from two different positions.
“For years my guns have had the best parts on the market from Tandemkross, but something was missing. Since I’ve started competing with SK, I’ve set more personal bests and won more titles than any year prior,” commented Kaitlin. “Thanks to my amazing sponsors, I now have the best gun parts and the best ammo! I am happy to have the opportunity to represent team SK. Thank you for all the support!”
Kaitlin uses SK Rifle Match, SK Standard Plus and SK Semi-Auto, and is coached by her father, David Benthin.
