Precision Rifle Series (PRS) shooting competitions are challenging, disciplined, long range matches held in a variety of conditions. Imagine firing 10 shots in two minutes at ranges varying from 300m to 1200m in positions ranging from traditional prone to firing from a canoe in a position that a yoga master might call “The In-elegant Pretzel”. 

Sound like fun? Well, lots of the world’s best shooters think so and it is also attracting newcomers to the sport in droves. Read on to find out more.

What is the Precision Rifle Series (PRS)?

The Precision Rifle Series (PRS) started in the USA and has now spread around the world with South Africa and Australia lining up at the range relatively recently. As one of the fastest growing shooting disciplines, PRS matches are practical long-range rifle matches shot in field conditions. Steel targets at ranges from 300 yards to 1200 yards shot from various positions with the clock ticking, it is little wonder the sport has attracted some of the world’s finest shooters to ever handle a rifle.
