The Precision Rifle Series is the preeminent rifle organization in the world, structuring a yearly points race for both the PRS Pro-Bolt Gun Series and the PRS Regional Series. The PRS Championship Shooting Series is synonymous with precision rifle shooting. The PRS is home to countless competitors including 6,000 active PRS shooters with scores being tracked. The PRS unites the 40 most renowned national pro series precision rifle competitions and continues to expand the PRS Regional Series, which hosts hundreds of one-day matches from coast to coast. The International PRS Series is advancing in South Africa and Australia to name a few. The influence of the PRS, with more than 1000 professional-level competitors and a growing global presence, extends in every conceivable direction inspiring the precision rifle community at its grassroots, hometown level.

We are recognized as the leading organizing body for local, regional, and national matches, tracking of scores, and the growth of the practical, long-range rifle discipline. By incorporating the visions of the PRS shooters, match directors, and sponsors we strive to achieve competitive excellence in each series and cultivate opportunities for shooters at every level. The PRS is committed to working alongside our partners to deliver a world-class Precision Rifle Series Organization.

The outlaw nature of the sport has made this a very unique collection of matches in all of the series. Matches are run very differently, focus on different fundamentals, and include a vast number of stressors, no two PRS matches are the same! This provides for regional variances that are unique and very challenging. Texas and Oklahoma matches are far different from the west coast and east coast matches and allow the shooter to really test the full extent of their capabilities by participating in both the national level Pro-Bolt Gun Series two-day competitions and the local Regional Series one-day competitions.

Born out of Military, Law Enforcement, and Hunting scenarios, the practical application of the precision rifle is the underlying theme for all series. Whether you are looking for a local club to join or you want to test yourself against the best shooters in the nation and the world, the Precision Rifle Series has a spot for you.


The Precision Rifle Series is and will continue to expand as the preeminent precision rifle organization in the world.

The Rules & Standard Operating Procedures apply to all PRS-sanctioned events including but not limited to PRS National Two-Day matches and PRS Regional One-Day matches.  Safety is the first and highest priority before, during, and after all PRS competitions and is everyone’s responsibility. Anyone who observes an unsafe act can call a cease-fire at any point during an event.  PRS competitions are designed to test a shooter’s ability to shoot accurately, correct for environmental factors effectively, and solve problems quickly. Each course of fire at a PRS event will be very practical in nature and relative to common aspects of long-range precision rifle engagements.

A high level of professionalism and sportsmanship is expected at each PRS event. All participants, including Match Directors, Range Officers, shooters, and spectators will be treated with the utmost respect at all times. Cheating of any kind will not be tolerated at PRS events and will result in an immediate match disqualification and in certain instances may be grounds for expulsion from the Series. PRS courses of fire (COF) are individual events designed to test a shooter’s individual skill and ability. Therefore, coaching a shooter while they are conducting a stage is prohibited. Assistance before and after a stage is not only authorized but encouraged especially for new shooters.

4.    Chamber flag use is MANDATORY. Do not come to/off the firing line without a chamber flag in your chamber. Violators will be issued a warning before being disqualified. If you lose your chamber flag, the match director will provide an alternate means to ensure the weapon is deemed safe until a chamber flag can be acquired. NOTE: Match Director will have extra Chamber Flags available for a price.
5.    Tripods and monopods are allowed at shooters discretion unless the match card states otherwise. Tripods and monopods must be carried in-hand, legs may be extended and for tripods, deployed at the start of the course of fire.  MD's must be consulted if a tripod or monopod will be offered for use by a novice shooter where the tripod or monopod will be left at the barricade instead of being carried in hand.

This may include broken targets, called cease fires for any reason not caused by the shooter, a broken prop or shooting support, or any other deemed reasonable by the Match Director. Reshoots will not be permitted for equipment malfunctions unless the firearm was provided as a “house gun”. Nor shall they be permitted for shooters who claim to have not understood the stage rules after the stage begins (stage begins when time has been started), nor permitted due to variations or irregularities in RO commands. Shooters who are granted a reshoot must reshoot the stage in the same manner with the exact same equipment.
·         2 With MD approval, the RO can give a shooter the option for a reshoot without having been asked by the shooter if the RO observes an incident which hindered the shooter. 
·         3 The shooter can request a reshoot if he/she believes one is warranted. The shooter will have a period of two minutes to explain his grievance to an RO. The RO will then contact the match director to determine if a reshoot will be granted.
·         4 There are two types of reshoots in PRS Competitions.
·         4.1 A Full Reshoot means the shooter will run the entire COF over from start to finish.
·         4.2 A Partial Reshoot means the shooter is placed in the exact same position they were in at the time of the stoppage and will have the exact amount of time placed back as 21 on the clock which was remaining at the time of the stoppage. If either the position or the time remaining cannot be determined, the shooter must take a full reshoot.

12. At the end of each stage, each shooter must check their scores before moving to the next stage. Any shooter who does not check their score will forfeit their right to challenge that stage after the fact. If there is a discrepancy, shooters will have a “challenge period” to discuss the disagreement. That challenge period will last as long as that stage is ongoing or before the next stage starts. If the Range Officer and shooter cannot come to an understanding, the Match Director will confer with any other observers to determine the outcome.
