Welcome to the Aurora Sportsmen's Club Practical Precision Rifle Season
Practical Precision Rifle Matches are 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 10 stages were you will engage steel targets from different supported and unsupported positions as well as managing various barricades for support. Target sizes are designed to be challenging. Target distances are usually known so shooters should have a good DOPE out to 600 yards.
Matches are held every SECOND SATURDAY of the month APRIL through OCTOBER. Excluding SEPTEMBER due to the ASC Zombie Shoot on September 14th. Registration opens up at 8am. Mandatory safety brief at 8:30 am. Matches start at 9am. 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 the same.
Magnum calibers 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, and .243 Winchester
BRING 100 ROUNDS TO EACH MATCH
Shooters should bring a scoped rifle, bipod, ammo and good DOPE. Shooters can also use support bags and slings but are not required. Certain stages may limit the use of support bags and props.
Shoot what you bring
You must compete in all stages with the same rifle
You must attend the safety brief and adhere to all of the safety rules
Each target impact is worth 1 point with the exception of KYL racks. The shooter with the highest point total at the end of each match will be declared the match winner. The winner of the match will always receive 100 points and the last place finisher will always receive roughly 50 points. All remaining field shooters will receive points based on their finish place and match factor.
A match has 45 shooters. Match Factor Calculation 50/ 45 shooters = 1.11 Match Factor.
1st place = 100, 2nd place = 100 – 1.11 = 98.89, 3rd place = 98.89 – 1.11 = 97.78 etc….
Shooters top three scores will be added together to establish the shooters overall season points. The shooter with the highest number of points for the season at the conclusion of the finale match will be declared the 2018 PPR champion! The finale match will be worth double points.
This is only the scoring system for the Aurora Sportsmen's Club. When scores are uploaded to Border Wars Series, PRS Club Series etc shooter match points will be formulated based on the scoring systems established for those series. Shooters should reference the individual scoring systems for the match series they are participating in to understand how your final match points will be calculated.
$10 ASC members: $20 for non-ASC members. ASC MEMBERS ARE REQUIRED TO PRESENT THEIR MEMBERSHIP BADGE DURING REGISTRATION OR BE FORCED TO PAY AN ADDITIONAL $10.
