LEWISTON, Idaho  – The readers of Predator Xtreme awarded CCI the 2020 Gold Award in the category of Rimfire Ammunition. The award was recently given to CCI ammunition engineers Justin Ruegsegger and Dylan Dixon at the 2020 SHOT Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, January 21-24.

“Since 1951, CCI has shaped the industry and served generations of shooters with the most advanced offerings for hunters,” said CCI Rimfire Product Director Rick Stoeckel. “While other manufacturers are content to offer a small selection of general-purpose loads, we craft ammunition customized to perform to the high standards. We are proud the Predator Xtreme readers recognize us as the best rimfire ammunition for their pursuits and we are honored to receive this award.”

“The Readers’ Choice Awards are 100-percent reader driven and give us, our audience, and our markets an unbiased view of what every day hunters use and count on,” said Predator Xtreme Publisher Derrick Nawrocki. “In 2019, we moved to an online voting system that included easy to fill out clickable dropdown selections for all known brands in each category. The more votes received makes these awards much more valuable and accurate today than they have ever been. The online results were an increase in voting totals of five times what we have seen in past years. CCI has long been a fan favorite and has won the Gold Award many times, 2020 is no different.”
