I shot at the hornsby match being as it was only 32kms from my house ha ha and got fifth in nato class but it's only my first match and a computer ballistic program is only so close for the height settings, and hope to do better next time, as I am on call during the canberra match I can't make it but will shoot it when I can.

Pleased to see you lined up and had a go,you have the right attitude,keep it up.

From what I've heard, it went very well. I wanted to attend but finances did not allow it :(

I did my first PRS shoot (invitational private group) yesterday, and can vouch for its level of difficulty.
be careful though,........it's very addictive and there's no doubt in my mind that it's going to be one of the fastest growing rifle disciplines in Oz.

Iv shot a few PRS matches so far, the biggest being the Inaugural at SSAA Mildura.
There is big sponsorship, even 7MM Craig has got on board with sponsoring the event.
The nex biggie is in Darwin in August and Nightforce has got on board with sponsorship.
6x47 L, 6.6x47L, 6.5Creedmore, 260R, 308 and 300WM are calibers used. Defiance, Surgeon, Pierce, Bat, AI, Remington, Tikka and the new ADI rifles are some of what I saw at the Mildura competition.
It is like the IPSC match but with bolt action rifles with muzzle breaks. Timed courses of fire and movement between targets with rifles, or movement to a position and back to your rifle to engage a target. A hit on a steel plate is a score for points. Targets are at varying ranges so dialling or hold over is used or what ever gets you on target. Long barrels are used as are short barrels but some courses of fire insist you position your rifle into a port to engage the target.
I hope this gives you a small background of how this PRS match is run.
Cheers
Paul

There is some video footage on the NT Prac Rifle Facebook page of a couple of shoots in Darwin. The Mildura match was good.

Like, I'll be running around and "dropping" to the prone position before loosing off a few wild shots! Yeah, that'll happen.

The question arrives at the shape of the targets (head and shoulders) as per ssr's.
