U.S.A. -( RCBS, the leading manufacturer of ammunition reloading equipment for rifles and pistols, recently wrapped up its first-ever “RCBS Rumble” – the company’s own Precision Rifle Series match, after years of sponsoring and supporting other PRS events nationwide.

“Our team couldn’t be happier with how the inaugural RCBS Rumble turned out,” said Laurie Kokoruda, senior product manager and match director.  “We have been discussing such an opportunity for years and thanks to the tremendous support we received not just locally but from our sponsors nationwide, the match was even better than we could have predicted. RCBS has supported PRS competitions for decades and it was great to see our brand take the lead in making a match of this caliber happen.”

Kokoruda continued, “A special thanks is owed to all the range officers and volunteers who worked behind the scenes to make the match move smoothly. We heard nothing but positive feedback from the shooters all weekend and we hope to be back next year in an even bigger way.”

The RCBS Rumble was held on August 6 in RCBS’s and GA Precision’s own backyard near Pleasant Hill, Missouri. With additional support from partners including Bushnell, Hoppe’s, Federal Ammunition, GA Precision, and Manner’s Composite Stocks, the Rumble drew 75 elite PRS Pro Series shooters from across the country and sold out of registration spots in less than an hour. In addition to the main competition, the match included side stages sponsored by Manners Composite Stocks and Bushnell.

The match heated up quickly, not just with a heat index of 105 degrees, but with a fast-paced, challenging course of fire that included buses, trucks, and other props. Team RCBS and Elite Tactical shooter Troy Livesay took fourth place at the match, taking home one of the coveted trophies – custom RCBS presses. First through fifth place won gold, silver, bronze, and copper RCBS Summit presses, while the top shooter in each class also received a custom copper RCBS Rebel press. Team RCBS and Elite Tactical shooter Melissa Gilliland claimed the Top Lady title at the match.

RCBS would like to congratulate all the shooters who participated in this year’s event as well as extend its thanks to the many sponsors who helped contribute to the match.

Wow! It amazes me to come to this site where I see many people argue the legalities of Freedom and the Right to Own guns, rifles, pistols and the like, yet I don’t see any of them interested in this article that I find to be an integral part of the relationship with guns and the people owning them. Am I missing something here. Where are those people? This is a Great Article and I want to thank Ammoland Shooting Sports News for printing it for it’s subscribers. There is much to be found in this article People. Read it.… Read more »


many of the people here dont follow the cmp matches either, the sport of shooting is not fully within the self defense group, they are more intrested in practical . I shoot long range 1 mile + there are people that can hit a target at 2 miles I am working on that. do I compete no I do it for me not to impress anyone
that said there are people that make a living with their skills ….other than killing people or putting food on the table

I hear you. I don’t shoot long range but I am learning more about it from a good friend that does. I’m up to 500 yards and at least hitting the target but getting better. I nail 300 down pretty good without any problems. I would love to get to a mile some day. Not a lot of people do that. Good luck to You and I hope you can get to 2 mi. one day but I don’t know anyone at the moment that can do that. lol


Just because someone doesn’t comment on an article doesn’t mean they didn’t read it and find it interesting. Most folks don’t write a letter to the editor every time they find something interesting. Probably the opposite – folks are more likely to write when they read something they disagree with. The state of humanity at this point.


This is true. You have a good day.
