Precision rifle shooting is a growing sport in the UK, but it is not as popular as some other shooting disciplines such as clay pigeon shooting or target pistol shooting. The sport has gained some popularity in recent years due to the rise of precision rifle competitions in the UK, such as the Precision Rifle Series UK (PRSUK), which is modelled after the US-based Precision Rifle Series (PRS).
The UKPRS organises a series of precision rifle matches throughout the year, which are open to competitors of all levels. The matches usually involve shooting at targets at various distances, often out to 1,000 yards, and from various positions and shooting platforms. There are different classes of rifles and equipment that competitors can use, which allows people to compete with equipment they already own or can afford.
In addition to the PRS UK, there are also other organisations and clubs that organise precision rifle shooting events and matches in the UK. While it is not as widely popular as some other shooting disciplines, precision rifle shooting is gaining a following in the UK and has a dedicated community of enthusiasts.
