PRS Finale Match Book

This past weekend was the finale match for the 2016 Precision Rifle Series (PRS). The highest ranked shooters from across the country converged at the FTW Ranch near Barksdale, Texas for the annual invitation-only, head-to-head match. Several participants said it was a very tough match, but I guess that’s what you need to challenge 130 world-class shooters.

I thought some of you guys might like to check out the match book from that event. It details all the stages, target sizes and distances, and time constraints for the match.

But, if you only looked at the match book, it’d be easy to underestimate the difficulty of this match. So I wanted to share a few photos from the match as well. It looks like the match directors found a ton of natural barriers and difficult positions to keep shooters from getting too comfortable!
