King of 2 Miles Queen Lindsey Paul Raton ELR Ryan Cheney

Lindsey Paul is the official 2021 King of 2-Mile Champion. The competition scores shooters on a series of targets that progressively get longer, with the final target being 2 miles away!

Lindsey was not winning the competition till the last round. The picture below shows, Lindsey came through in the final round, hitting the 2-mile target 3 out of 5 times. She was the only one to hit it more than once, and only four other shooters even hit the 2-mile mark. Lindsey was shooting a .375 CheyTac cartridge with Cutting Edge 400gr solids.

Match Directors posted: “Every year we get more hits at Two Miles, and this has been the best ever — 3 of 5 from Lindsey and five shooters hitting the 2-mile target: Lindsey Paul, Ryan Cheney, Jay Dvorsky, Peter Renwick, and Curtis Roman”.

The Queen of 2 Miles Thanks Her Team and Sponsors
Here is Lindsey’s Report on her Achievement — being the first woman ever to win the King, oops, make that QUEEN of 2 Miles Competition.

“I don’t even know where to start! What a wild ride this year this has been. First and foremost thank you to my amazing guy Robert for being the best spotter I could ask for. He is responsible for making most of this happen with his great wind calls, corrections and support. Thank you to the rest of my team.

Jeff had tough conditions with shade on targets for his final round making spotting misses impossible but still finished with a super-respectable 6th place. Shane has come a long way in a short time and did great as well with a 19th place finish, just below the cutoff for the finals. I’m really proud of my performance as Robert’s spotter. He forgot to write down his dope for target 3 and I still managed to help him get on target and he finished in 26th. Jay we missed the hell out of you and hope you are back to 100% soon!

Thank you to my sponsors Alamo Precision RiflesMcMillan Fiberglass Stocks, and Kenneth Johnson at K&P Rifle Barrels. The amazing Cutting Edge Bullets struck again! They just flat out work!

My Applied Ballistics PDM (Personal Drag Model) was nearly spot on out to two miles. Your contribution to shooting sports is beyond remarkable. We couldn’t do what we do without your support.

I was concerned about switching to an Accu-Tac bipod right before this match but I’m dang sure a believer now! I picked up a Nightforce scope of the prize table which was just what I needed as I was borrowing one. Thank you to them and all of the other sponsors who stepped up to support this match and the shooting community.

DNA Custom Engraving also made me the coolest challenge coin ever!”
