Bushnell Pro Troy Livesay Takes First Place at Accuracy Indiana Shootwith Elite Tactical XRS3 Riflescope
Bushnell®, an industry leader in performance optics, congratulates Elite Tactical pro shooter Troy Livesay on his first-place finish at the Accuracy Indiana Long Range Precision Rifle Shoot. Livesay claimed the top spot at the 1-mile match in Newberry, Indiana, for a second year in a row using the new Bushnell Elite Tactical XRS3 riflescope.
This year’s Accuracy Indiana Long Range Precision Rifle Shoot consisted of 11 stages with targets ranging from 268 to 1,760 yards (one mile). Throughout the match, shifting winds and difficult target arrays challenged competitors on each stage. Despite the tough match conditions, Livesay was able to stay one-step ahead of the other 94 competitors to claim the top overall spot. Livesay’s first place finish matched his performance from 2021, giving him back-to-back titles at the annual competition.
“Shooting long range field-style matches has always been my favorite,” Livesay said. “These types of matches force you to make good wind calls and the unpredictable environment keeps everyone on their toes. This was also my first match behind the XRS3, and it was a critical piece of coming out on top in some challenging conditions. I couldn’t be happier with clarity of the glass or its consistent tracking. The new G4P reticle gave me everything I needed and more. I can’t wait to keep shooting with it.”
The new Elite Tactical XRS3 6-36×56 riflescope used by Livesay features the most advanced Elite Tactical optical system ever. The XRS3 comes with a high magnification ED Prime objective, as well as fully multi-coated elements, EXO Barrier™ protection, and an all-new proprietary floating dot reticle. Other updates on the XRS3 include a multi-position throw hammer, bold turret markings plus an enlarged eyebox for faster target acquisition.
