Shooting Hornady® 9mm 115 grain XTP™ bullets, it was Duff’s seventh consecutive Ladies Steel Master title win, and her fifth time winning all four titles, including Ladies 22 Open, Limited, Open, and Lady Steel Master.

Duff’s choice of bullets for the match was an easy one to make. “When I shoot Hornady 9mm 115 grain XTP bullets, I can totally focus on my performance because I’m using the most accurate bullet by far,” she said. “I’ve run these stages before, but I still have my favorites, and know which ones require my focus. This year I’ve implemented a new workout program, incorporating weights, cardio and upper body conditioning which has made a difference in my reaction time.”

The eight-stage match uses standard Steel Challenge targets, set as close as eight yards and out to 35 yards. Competitors shoot seven of the stages five times, with their slowest run time eliminated. The final stage is shot four times, with three of their best run times counting. The remaining best times are added together to determine their final match scores.
