Staff Sgt. Brandon Green of Box Spring, Ga. has won the 2013 National Rifle Association High Power Rifle Championship with a 2384-126x out of 2400. The matches are a part of the annual Remington/NRA National Rifle & Pistol Matches held at Camp Perry, Ohio, from August 4-9. The win was determined by a tie-breaker between Green and defending champion Carl Bernosky.

Following four days of shooting, Green and Bernosky had tied with final scores of 2384-126x. A comparison of tie-breaking X's at each distance, starting furthest out, took place. The tie was ultimately broken when Green prevailed with 35 X’s shot at 600 yards opposite Bernosky’s 34.

In addition to winning the High Power Championship’s prestigious Mumma Trophy, Green, a member of the United States Army Marksmanship Unit (USAMU), took top honors in the NRA Match Rifle Championship while Bernosky placed second and Norman Houle placed third with a 2381-111x. Additionally, Green received the Match Rifle Championship’s High Service award and finished first overall in the McCann Trophy Match with a 1198-66x out of 1200.

"It doesn't get any tighter than those last few matches," Green said. “The weather conditions were difficult but everybody still shot well. I fought hard to get here and it feels pretty good for everything to come out in my favor."
