What is PRS? 

Precision Rifle Series (PRS) is a precision rifle based shooting sport derived from practical shooting.  The series have a championship style where competitors collect points from matches nationwide and thereby are ranked across the nation.  Top ranked competitors get to compete in the last match of the season which is the "Precision Rifle Finale".

The competition seeks to find a balance between speed and precision, and targets can both have known (KD) and unknown distances (UKD).  Shooting distances can vary but average between 200m to 1000m, and thus the competitor needs to have good knowledge of the fundamentals of marksmanship, their personal firearms, ballistics, wind reading etc.  The primary focus is on long range shooting, and a competition usually consists of several courses of fire.  Each course usually has a set maximum time (par time), and the shooter is awarded points according to how many targets he manages to hit during that time.  Both cardboard and steel targets can be used, and the targets presented are usually relatively small (usually between 0.3 - 0.9 MIL (3 - 9 cm at 100m, approximately 1 - 2.5 MOA)).
