Edgar Brothers announces sponsorship of multi-talented Mcilwaine in Precision Rifle League

  • Edgar Brothers has announced its sponsorship of one of shooting sport’s all-round rising stars, Ben Mcilwaine, in this year’s Precision Rifle League (PRL). Ben, a research scientist at Cranfield University in Bedfordshire, competed in the inaugural 2019 PRL season, securing multiple top 10 finishes and winning two PRL extreme long range (ELR) challenges. A keen reloader with a passion for precision shooting, he aims to finish in the top five this year and continue to win ELR matches. As part of the sponsorship deal, Ben will receive a Barratt MRAD in 6.5 Creedmoor, Bushnell optics, Hornady ammunition and reloading supplies, and an Eberlestock Sniper Sled drag bag. Having started shooting at a young age, Ben’s achievements include a classification World Championship trophy for Sporting clays, multiple Junior County Championships in English Skeet, Sporting, Sportrap and FITASC, an AAA classification, multiple medals at the British Universities championships, plus third position in the NRA Civilian Service Rifle national league. “I am very proud to be representing Edgar Brothers as an individual sponsored shooter and to be a brand ambassador for Barrett, Bushnell, Hornady and Eberlestock. I look forward to getting their products out in the competitive world so people can have a look and feel of what they have to offer,” Ben commented. “We’re delighted to be able to sponsor such an accomplished all-round talent and we feel that Ben will make a hugely positive contribution to what is already set to be a very exciting PRL season,” said Tom Heapy from Edgar Brothers.
