Welcome to the Aurora Sportsmen's Club Practical Precision Rifle 2016 Season
Practical Precision Rifle Matches is a fast paced long range shooting competition that will test your rifle marksmanship as you manage various barricades and obstacles to engage targets from 100 - 600 yards. Matches are divided up into 6 - 7 stages were you will engage paper and steel targets from different positions (standing, kneeling, sitting, prone, etc.), and various barricades. Target sizes are designed to be challenging. However, new shooter will have an option to engage larger targets so everyone can get some hits. More experienced shooters will engage the smaller targets for higher points. Target distances are usually known so shooters should have a good DOPE out to 600 yards.
Matches are held every second Sunday of the month April through SEPTEMBER. Matches start at 9am with a mandatory safety brief at 8:45 am. Matches typically take 3 - 4 hours to complete. Any time left over we tend to use as a free shot or we will hold a bonus match.
Bolt action rifles are the most common firearm of choice but Semi-automatic platform rifles are welcome. Bolt action rifles and semi-automatic rifles will be scored separately.
Magnums are not allowed. Please adhere to a 3100 fps maximum muzzle velocity for all rounds fired. Typical calibers are .308, 6.5 creedmoor, .260 remington, 6mm, 7mm, .243 Winchester
