Shit was pretty fun. I suck. I had formerly thought I was an awesome shooter.

Lol.


They were all nice there was no airgunning or pasting.

I've been stalking a Ruger PRS 6mm Creedmore.  On sale at Grab-a-Gun for $895.

It's a fun and challenging sport, but be ready to pull out and leave them your $100 entry when it looks like 8" of rain is coming in that day. Those fuckers shoot in any condition.

damn that is a great price.

 

i don't really know the precision rifle match format.  is it "ultra" precise f class rabbit hole or just very accurate and some other skills measured like speed or distance estimating or something.

PRS Is basically just striking steel plates at different distance from different positions with a par time per stage. Usually averages out to around ten seconds per shot including the position change,oh and sometimes half the stage will be pistol Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

what was your precision rifle?

A 6.5 grendel ar15 with fixed 12x scope . Shoots .3-.9 inch groups of 5 depending on loads.

From the bench. With sandbags. With one shot every 2 minutes. Lol


This stuff was from barricades and weird positions, on the clock. 2 minutes par times (generous from what I understand).

This one was only 300-600 yards but they have ones with up to 1400yards I guess.

They all have
Super fancy bolt guns all custom. Super expensive glass. 100 dollar pillows.

And great skill too.

The game doesn't require a .25 MOA rifle, but it does require a great deal of experience with shooting from really awkward positions and with a MOA-ish rifle.
I don't know that any of these events have been won with gas guns, but you can absolutley be competitive with one. And, you (or at least I) learn a ton at each match.
The shorter matches that only go to 600yds or so are still fun with a .223 or other small-frame caliber AR. Starts getting kinda frustrating when ranges go much beyond that.
And yes, as mentioned above, the rifles and glass are stupid expensive, but even the accoutrements costs as much as my 3Gun rifle...
Pistol forum presently has a tripod setup for sale at a bargain price of around $1100 which is apparently discounted some $800 off retail prices.
PRS can get stupid-spendy stupid-fast!

I want to play! They shoot a precision match out COSSA every month (same day as the USPSA match unfortunately) that goes out to a mile. Don't need a fancy chassis or mag fed stock because it isn't PRS/par time style. More like a prone match. Seems like a great opportunity to learn the long range game.

PRS seems more fun to me, it's the action/practical shooting sport for precision rifle. I just got a rifle so I'm gonna hopefully get to shoot one now.

Where was the match you shot?

Upper nisqually sportsmen club. Practical rifle match
Eatonville wa. . They had some guys from Oregon show up. Their matches are first Saturday of every month. 8am-4.
This one was purposefully beginner friendly and so will the next one be. Then after that points matches with shorter par times and harder targets.

If there ever was a heaven for gear queers, precision rifle is it.

 

I looked into it, thought about it, and took a pass.

 

Wait...will saying "queer" get me banned from here or from USPSA?

They play that fabulous (new word for ghey) precision game at my club. I’ll pass, but I’ll read your precision rifle range diary, maybe.

Shot my new rifle for the first time today. Got it zeroed at 100, then plugged in the data for 500.

First round center hit at 500, then moved to 1000. Was struggling to call my splash at 1k... I was missing so close to the plate I couldn't tell which side I was missing on. It just looked like the dust was coming up from directly behind the target. I eventually saw it off the right side and made the correction. Got the hit on the 9th shot, which also happened to be the last shot in the box!

For the first day out with my new toy, I am pretty happy with the result! 28.25 MOA UP and 0.5 MOA left to get the hit.

You didn't get a mil scope?

I know you're trying to be funny but it's dumb to buy an instrument that measures in units that hardly no one uses in your chosen sport.....

 

It's like buying a car here with a metric speedometer.  Sure you can manage it, but why?

 

PS, radians are not metric even though the French have adopted it as such.

No, I didn't. I wanted to but the scope I wanted to buy was not available with mil clicks. However, I know plenty of people who still use minutes instead of miliradians. Maybe not in PRS, but I'm not going to be be shooting PRS for quite awhile anyway. By that time I probably will have a different scope anyway.

And no they arent metric. They belong to the maths.
