MKM Precision is proud to host the 3rd Annual Peterson Cartridge Challenge. Capitalizing on the dual 1000 yard ranges and the 600 yard positional range at the MKM Shooting Complex, the weekend will consist of a 2 day Bolt Gun Competition and an optional one day “tune up”, where competitors can train on the MKM facility to prepare for the upcoming competition.
In association with the Precision Rifle Series and primary sponsor Peterson Cartridge, the event 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.
The competition will be high tempo with minimal “down time” between stages. MKM takes pride in hosting a professional and efficient championship style match. The course of fire tests and trains disciplines from across law enforcement, military and practical marksman spectrums.
Competitors can expect to shoot 18 completely different stages with engagements from 300-1100yds at an assortment of steel, reactive and automated moving targets. Target size will vary in difficulty based on the shooters position, distance, props used and time allotted. Most stages will include “stressors”, either time and/or movement. All scoring will be transparent and balanced in order to reward the most consistent shooters. The competition requires approximately 200 rounds to complete the course of fire and is caliber restricted to 300 WinMag and below. The course of fire will be made public at the start of each competition.

Competitors are invited to join us on Friday, the day before the match, for the Tune-up. MKM will open the 1015 yard main range and Mover Ranges for data confirmation and the chance for competitors to practice engaging moving targets. All props on those ranges will be available for those shooters that want some additional training time. No shooter will be allowed to practice or have knowledge of any stage from the match. All competitors must sign in at the tent before shooting and be issued a wrist band. COF books will be issued only after shooters are finished with the tune-up. Wrist bands will then be cut off and competitors will no longer be allowed to return to the firing lines. Tune-up hours are from 9am to 4pm on the Friday before the match. Cost for the tune up is $40 upon arrival.
