About the Precision Rifle Series

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 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.

PRS Competition Standards And Principles

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, to include 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.

PRS Rules

2020 PRS Rules: https://www.precisionrifleseries.com/static/media/uploads/2020_prs_rulebook.pdf   

There will be a two week window, beginning December 1, 2019, in which PRS members may review the rules before they are finalized.  Please send your comments and/or suggestions to info@precisionrifleseries.com.  We will review your notes and potentially bring them to the 2020 Match Director Committee for review. 

PRS Scoring

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.

PRS points for the field are figured using the following formula: Shooters score / winners score x 100, rounded to 3 decimal places.

Example:

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 shooters season total. 

What is the Pro Bolt Gun Series?

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.  Finale will be weighted 60/40.

WHAT IS THE PRS REGIONAL SERIES?

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 the last few years. That is mainly due the outstanding Regional Directors and Match Directors working in their regions to promote the sport. The national level series is well established, 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 to 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 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)

WHAT IS THE AG CUP SERIES?

The purpose of the PRS AG cup series is to promote an aspirational series for nation’s most elite competitors to compete at the highest levels.  With the success of the Armageddon Gear Cup, the PRS has partnered with Armageddon Gear to implement the elite “PRS AG CUP Series”.  Throughout the year the PRS AG Cup Series will pit the most elite shooters against each other for cash payouts, rank the best shooters and then culminated each winter with the AG CUP hosted by Armageddon Gear. This is a truly elite series for those that desire to professionalize the sport, crave cash payouts, increase sponsor exposure, like to chase TV time or simply want to be the best among the best! All happening at the matches we already shoot!  

STRUCTURE

AG CUP SERIES PAYOUT TABLES & EXAMPLES

PRS CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM

Divisions

The PRS has four Divisions – Open, Tactical, Production, and Gas Gun.  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 divsion 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.

Categories

In addition to the four divisions, the PRS has five categories: Military/Law Enforcement Category, Ladies Category, Seniors Category, Junior Category, and the International Competitor Class. To compete in a category you must select it on your PRS profile. 

Classifications

In order for shooters to be able to compete with their peers, PRS Series competitors are divided into classifications based upon 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, shooters 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.  Regional Series implementation will take place when each region hits a 400-500 shooter threshold.  Top shooters within each classification will be afforded the opportunity 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 prior to finale based on the current season series scores and maybe eligible for entry into the finale.

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 any other qualifying system, that slot will transfer to the next shooter in that category.
