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.
2022 PRS Rimfire Rules: https://www.precisionrifleseries.com/static/media/uploads/prs_rules_rimfire.pdf
There will be a two-week window, beginning December 1st, in which PRS members may review the rules before they are finalized. Please send your comments and/or suggestions to [email protected]. We will review your notes and potentially bring them to the Match Director Committee for review.
PRS Points for the season standings are attained by shooting in PRS Series matches. Those shooters wishing to have their score tracked must become PRS members. Membership retroactive grace period to count past matches for current season points is 7 days. The PRS points system is based on a performance system where the first-place shooter in each Division (Open, Tactical, Production, and Gas) receives 100 points and all other shooter’s scores from each Division are determined by dividing their score by the winner’s score and multiplying that number by 100. All open scores will be calculated off of the highest recorded score, regardless of division.
PRS points for the field are figured using the following formula: Shooters score / winners score x 100, rounded to 3 decimal places.
You received 89 match points.
The winner received 105 match points.
Therefore; (89 / 105) * 100 = 84.7619 rounded to 84.762 PRS points
Total PRS points for the season will be the sum of the shooter’s three best match scores which must include at least one PRS Series Qualifier match score. To qualify for the PRS National Two Day or Regional One Day Season Finale, a shooter must have three PRS match scores, which must include at least one PRS Series Qualifier match score. PRS National and Regional match Qualifiers will be identified at the beginning of the season and will rotate from year to year. The PRS Finale will be worth 40% of the shooter's season total.
The Pro-Bolt Gun Series is the renowned national-level championship shooting series comprised of more than 40 of the most highly sought-after two-day precision rifle competitions in the nation. PRS Pro Series competitors are a diverse and talented group of precision rifle shooters who compete in PRS national-level matches from coast to coast, in a points race culminating in a year-end PRS Pro Series Finale. Membership draws those from across the country who wish to compete against the nation’s best professionals, military operators, and the many new shooters who are just joining our discipline.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE
HOW TO QUALIFY FOR THE PRS PRO-BOLT GUN SERIES FINALE
During the season, shooters that want to qualify for the finale must include 1 of their top 3 scores from a PRS finale qualifier match.
This requires the top shooters in the country to retain at least one match score from a more equal field promoting competitive excellence that the PRS outlines in its mission statement and goals. Shooters who choose not to participate in PRS Qualifier can still compete for year-end standings but will not be invited to the Finale. The finale will be weighted 60/40.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE FOR MD'S
If you are interested in running a PRS Pro Series Match in a future season, please send an email to [email protected] for more information.
The PRS Regional Series is formed by precision rifle competitors and match directors to organize, structure, and support the national precision rifle club-level community. The Regional Series is home to over 361 one-day matches across the nation. The series has matured and exploded remarkably in the last few years. That is mainly due to the outstanding Regional Directors and Match Directors working in their regions to promote the sport. The national level series is well established, but for many shooters, the time, travel, and costs can discourage active participation in large two-day style matches. The PRS Regional Series addresses these concerns that exclude many shooters who want to routinely join us on the firing line. The membership is comprised of shooters from juniors to sponsored professionals, as well as match directors and volunteers.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE
HOW TO QUALIFY FOR YOUR REGIONAL SERIES FINALE
Shooters that want to qualify for the regional finale must include 1 of their top 3 scores from a PRS Regional Finale Qualifier match.
Regional Directors in conjunction with their MDs will identify a select number of matches throughout the year to be sanctioned as PRS Regional Finale Qualifier matches. They will be spread across the region with objective consideration of locations and frequency. Shooters may shoot as many of these matches as they like to improve their score. There will be no changes to how many or where the other 2 scores come from. The qualifier rule will apply to the following divisions: Open, Tactical, Production, Gas, Lady, Junior, Mil/Le, and Senior.
This requires the top shooters to retain at least one match score from a more equal field promoting competitive excellence that the PRS outlines in its mission statement and goals. Shooters who choose not to participate in the PRS Regional Qualifier can still compete for year-end standings but will not be invited to the Finale. The Regional Finale will be weighted 60/40. (200 points - 40% of the overall score)

Precision rimfire is an affordable way for people to enjoy competitive shooting. The PRS is committed to its development, potential, and evolution.
In keeping with PRS tradition and the outlaw nature of our sport, each PRS rimfire match will be run 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. PRS MD’s will always have the freedom to plan and execute courses of fire they feel best captures the core principles of PRS rimfire competitions. The PRS will not dictate to MD’s how they run their COF’s. The PRS believes that the competitors should make the determination of the quality of a match and should provide appropriate feedback to the MD as well as the PRS when necessary.
The PRS Rimfire Series structure is aligned with the PRS Regional Series (Centerfire) and is nested in the PRS style of organization.

HOW TO QUALIFY FOR A PRS RIMFIRE REGIONAL FINALE
PRS Regional Rimfire Finales will be organized by the region’s MD’s and Regional Director. The top shooters in each region’s end-of-season standings, in all divisions and categories, will receive an invite to the region’s finale. Regional boundaries are displayed on the PRS Rimfire Website. Shooters may complete outside region but their point totals will remain in their home or selected region.
The PRS will be responsible for hosting a National Championship Rimfire Match at the end of the season. Invitations will be determined by each Region’s Final Standings after their finale scores have been added to the standings.
The PRS has four Centerfire Divisions (Open, Tactical, Production, and Gas Gun) and two Rimfire Divisions (Open and Production). All shooters must declare the Division in which they will be competing when they register for a PRS match. Shooters are permitted to shoot in multiple Divisions in the same season. Therefore your division is not pre-selected on the PRS website and must be uploaded with scores by the MD of the match. Shooters participating in the AG Cup Series will have their open division scores earned at AG Cup Qualifiers counted toward the AG Cup Series. If an MD makes a mistake and uploads the incorrect division, please contact the MD and request that they correct it.
In addition to the four divisions, the PRS has five categories: Military/Law Enforcement Category, Ladies Category, the Seniors Category, Junior Category, and the International Competitor Class. To compete in a category you must select it on your PRS profile.
For shooters to be able to compete with their peers, PRS Series competitors are divided into classifications based on their skill level and performance. The reason for the classification system is to have the ability to rank competitors and allow shooters to have true peer-to-peer recognition. This allows for goal setting and realistic achievement of attainable goals within the sport.
The classification system is a yearly performance-based system in which shooters are classed for the current season based on their year-prior season series score (not including their finale score). At the end of each season, shooter classes will be recalculated according to the classification bracket percentages based on their end-of-season pre-finale series score. The shooter will retain this classification for the entire next season and compete within this classification at the Pro Series Finale (if qualified).
PRS competitors can achieve a classification of either Pro, Semi-Pro, Marksman, or Amateur. Each class consists of a percentage of the total number of affiliated shooters, based on the end-of-season standings not including the finale. Pro shooters, for example, will be classified as the top 20% of competitors according to the standings after the last Pro Series match of the season. Competitors within the top 55 -79.9% of shooters, based on these standings will be classified as Semi-Pro and so on.
PRO Series Classification Bracket Percentages:
Percentages are broken down from the total number of shooters, based on yearly standings. The number of shooters included in each class will be rounded up or down to the nearest whole number. Tied shooters who fall into 2 separate classes based on the percentages will be classed up into the higher class. The “classed up shooters” former positions will remain unfilled in the lower class. Top shooters within each classification will be allowed to attend the PRS Pro Series finale, fostering growth and encouraging participation at all levels. Shooters with no previous year end-of-season series score will be titled “unclassed” (UNC) for the current season. These “unclassed” shooters will receive a classification before the finale based on the current season series scores and may be eligible for entry into the finale. Regional Series implementation will take place when each region hits a 400-500 shooter threshold. Rimfire Series implementation will take place when each region hits a 200-300 shooter threshold.
PRS CLASSIFICATION FINALE INVITES
Semi-Pro, Marksman, Amateur Classification Shooters: The top 5 shooters in each of these PRS Classifications will also receive an invitation to the Finale. If they have already qualified for the Finale based on any other qualifying system, that slot will transfer to the next shooter in that category.
