ASC Practical Precision Rifle
Welcome to the Aurora Sportsmen's Club Practical Precision Rifle Page
Practical Precision Rifle Matches are a fast-paced long range shooting competition that will test your rifle marksmanship skills as you manage various barricades and obstacles to engage targets from 100 - 600 yards. Matches are divided up into 8-10 stages where 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. 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 shoot.

Each target impact is worth 1 point. 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….
PPR Points Race:
Shooters top three scores will be added together, including the finale worth double points, 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 2023 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 PRS Regional Series, Lost Boys, 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.
