Boothwyn, PA - January 18, 2022


Kestrel Ballistics, the leading manufacturer of shooting performance instruments, is excited to announce its partnership with World Champion Shooter Doug Koenig.

Koenig, born and raised in Pennsylvania, began shooting competitively at 17, winning both regional and national competitions. In 1990, Koenig turned pro as a competitive shooter, scoring an unprecedented 1920x at the NRA Bianchi Cup. Since that day, his list of accomplishments and championship wins has continued and remains unsurpassed. His potent combination of speed, accuracy, and shooting skills has produced wins in various multi-disciplined competitions with more than 70 National and 10 World titles, including an unprecedented 18 times as a Bianchi Cup Champion.

Kestrel Ballistics' rugged, waterproof environmental and shooting performance instruments are designed, built, sold, and supported in the USA by Nielsen-Kellerman Company. Every Kestrel Instrument undergoes rigorous functional and sealing testing and calibration against NIST-traceable standards before it leaves the plant. Every product we build is also covered by an industry-leading five-year warranty against defect or failure to perform.

"I'm really excited about my new partnership with Kestrel Ballistics," says Koenig. He continues, "As a professional shooter for over 30 years, I'm continually looking for the best performance-based equipment to improve my training and help me get better. That's what it's all about, being consistent. And I found it."

For over 40 years, Kestrel Ballistics has been working tirelessly to uphold the reputation they've built for reliability, sustainability, customer support, and charitable efforts in the community.

"Doug is one of the best overall shooters out there, so pairing him with Kestrel Ballistics to continue his training for competition is really exciting for our entire team," says Katie Godfrey, Strategic Global Account Executive at Kestrel Ballistics. She goes on to say, "We are looking forward to big things in 2022!"

Kestrel Ballistics will be attending SHOT SHOW 2022 alongside Doug Koenig, located at Booth #14856. Stay tuned for a big announcement coming soon, to be revealed at the show!
