Match Information: The South Wind Shootout is a two day Precision Rifle Series national match held at Ringneck Ranch in Tipton, Ks. The name "South Wind" comes from the Kansa Native American tribe which the state was named after. They were known as the "People of the South Wind."
Expect an excellent, fun, safe and challenging course of fire designed to test all manners of long range precision rifle shooting. The match will feature 20 unique stages set within the rolling Blue Hills of North Central Kansas. The range sets within 1000+ acres of diverse landscape that allow us to set up a safe match with a 180* direction of fire spread across the stages to truly test the modern marksman's ability to read the wind.
