What is a PRS match like?

These are not your typical “lay on your belly and shoot at paper” matches.  You will be shooting a variety of targets (usually armor plate steel of some sort) at differing ranges, from countless props and positions, with a maximum allotted time to complete each stage.

Targets may range in size from 1moa up to 5moa depending on the stage; most will fall between 2-3moa, at ranges from 50-1000 yards. Occasionally, matches will have a few targets extending out to 1500 yards, but these ranges are rather uncommon.

Matches are broken down into a number of stages; each having it’s own description, target layout, round count, restrictions, positions and props.  Most stages are limited to 8-10 rounds, but they may go as low as one round, up to an unlimited number of rounds.  Most matches will have 8-12 stages for each day of competition.

Typically, shooters will rotate to stages with a squad; a group of shooters, either self assigned, or assigned by the match director, who shoot all stages together.  This brings order and efficiency to a match indegenerique.be.  Squads also help assure that shooters should never have to shoot two stages in a row without a break.  A shooter will usually have 30 minutes to 1 hour between when they have to shoot.  This time goes quickly as you’re getting yourself ready to shoot, watching other shooters, and planning how to best shoot the stage.
