Joe competed with Nordic Components NC15 and NC10 rifles. “My two Nordic Components rifles were both on the money! They are serious PRECISION INSTRUMENTS. I hit the farthest gas gun target (741yds) with both rifles….one shot each.” said Burdick.

Both professional-grade rifles feature high-quality components including a tack-driving, cryogenically treated, 1/8 twist stainless steel barrel, a black nitride finished bolt carrier group, billet upper and a lower receiver that is machined to stand out from the competition. The NC15 in .223 is currently available at Nordic dealers nationwide. The NC10 in .308 will be available for purchase in January 2017.

This match was the first long range rifle match for 3-Gun Nation. It contained 50 total rifle targets with 30 being between 350 yards and 817 yards. Three of the five stages required a pistol as well. More of these types of matches are planned for the future.
