    U.S. Army Sgt. Benjamin Cleland set a new national record by shooting the first-ever, perfect score of 800 with a service rifle at the 2019 Charlie Smart Memorial Regional in Oak Ridge, Tennessee on June 2.

    Cleland, a Soldier with the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit’s Service Rifle Team, competed in the National Rifle Association’s 80-Shot Regional High-Power Rifle Course along with several other servicemembers and top civilian competitors. And at the end of four different matches, his aggregate score of 800-34x easily made him the Regional Champion.

    More importantly though, that aggregate score of 800 meant that this Swanton, Ohio native hit the 10-ring on ALL 80 shots, something that has never been recorded as accomplished on a service rifle in this type of match.
