What is Precision Rifle Shooting?

Precision Rifle Shooting (known by many names such as National Rifle League, Precision Rifle League, Precision Rifle Series and more), is a fast growing sport based on long range dynamic shooting. This sport is similar to other practical shooting disciplines, however focuses more on ranged shooting in different environments and disruptive positions. It related closely to both military long rang engagements and hunting.

Each PRS match is completed in a number of stages, involving a time limit and a stage brief. A stage brief will dictate what is to be shot (steel target) and at what position or condition. These conditions could be restricted to a surface, barricade or a set position for the shooter. There is not a huge emphasis on movement, however it is not uncommon for a stage to require the competitor to move between positions to complete a stage.
