We get a lot of questions about this new and exciting competition series. We have done our best to answer the bulk of the common questions that we have received. If you have a question and don't see an answer below, feel free to contact us.
What is the Outlaw Rimfire Precision Series?
The Outlaw Rimfire Precision Series is a new competition series designed to provide Canadians with challenging and exciting matches that bring the .22LR rimfire rifle platform and positional shooting together in the same event. These events will test the shooter's skills in 5 physically and mentally challenging stages, against a variety of targets, in difficult positions all within a limited amount of time.
The targets are placed between 25 to 100 yards and vary in size from 1/4" to 6" in diameter. With sizes usually increasing in proportion to the target distance and instability of the shooter's position.
The series is limited to the .22lr rimfire caliber and is divided into a production class and open class.
What is the course of fire?
The course of fire is 5 timed stages with between 1-4 targets per stage. The stages are usually 120 seconds long but can be shorter depending on the stage.
A stage will usually require a minimum of 10 rounds but may also be higher depending on the stage.
Different props or barricades are used at each stage as firing positions and are designed to test the shooter's ability to rapidly develop a stable shooting position. Positional shooting should also be expected as part of the course of fire. These include the typical positions of standing, sitting, kneeling and prone. Shooter's with physical limitations will be accommodated at the match director's discretion.
There may be 1 or more targets placed strategically to force the shooter to transition between targets. These targets will vary from 1/4" to 6" in diameter, depending on distance and shooting position stability.
Within a limited time, the shooter must build a solid position, engage the targets in prescribed sequence with the right amount of hits to score points. These points are tabulated and the shooters with the top 3 highest point totals in each division at the end of the day are awarded medals.
