Lapua Returns as Title Sponsor of the Practical Rimfire Challenge Series At Peacemaker National

U.S.A.-( The enormously popular Practical Rimfire Challenge Series (PRC) is here to stay as a shooting sport. Year three of the Lapua PRC Series will be held at Peacemaker National Training Center in Glengary, WV.

The PRC is designed to provide a full test of the .22 rifle, shooter, ammunition and optics out to (and in some cases well beyond) 300 yards. While most PRC stages focus on long-range positional shooting skills, shooters will encounter stages set in natural terrain, stages with movement, Olympic stages of fire, Collegiate stages of fire and/or Smallbore style stages. Shooters select either semi-auto or bolt action division’s and all rifles must be chambered in 22 LR, as well as magnified optics. All legal, safe and responsible amateur and professional shooters are welcome!

The 2019 Lapua PRC Series is an affordable FIVE match series with a significant prize table, shot over the course of the shooting season and ending with a dramatic series finale in October. In 2019, PNTC is opening Sunday squads, which will help shooters find time to compete. Shooters only need to post scores in two of the first four series matches in order to be eligible to qualify for the PRC finale.

“The Lapua Practical Rimfire Challenge Series (PRC) is enormously popular with our members and shooters of all backgrounds. Pro’s, amateurs, parents and kids just love it. Incredible sponsor support making these events possible is a great help. Lapua, Zeiss, Magnum Research, CMP Steel Targets and others who are coming on for 2019 have all been extremely helpful. We look forward to an incredible season and to watching Lapua’s new line of SK Long Range Match Ammo perform in PRC “ – Jennifer McCulloch, PNTC VP Operations

At the present time, our local club hosts a .22 Precision KD/prone match three times a summer. Great fun, of course, and so inexpensive, or as expensive as one cares to get. I’d love to see us having some of this kind of competition, sans ‘prizes’ other than a belt buckle awarded at season end to best shooter(s).
