Matches in our series are precision rimfire rifle matches shot in practical/field conditions. This means we give competitors unorthodox positions, such a rooftops, and/or some sort of shooting problem, such as alternating between colored targets at different distances. Think ‘pewpew Precision Rifle Series (PRS)’. Our matches are very similar to the NRL22 or the Practical Rimfire Challenge.

The NRA article linked below gives a good overview of practical rimfire competitions. Then there are two videos from YouTube channel, 8541 Tactical, that describes getting started with the NRL22. Finally, we have a sample course of fire from one of our previous matches at the bottom of the page.

Be sure to also check out our Details page and FAQ. And feel free to Contact Us with any questions. Beginning a new sport can be complicated, we are here to help.
