Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

We get a lot of question 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 Canadian Rimfire Precision Series?

The Canadian 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 the difficulty of positional shooting together in the same event. These events will test the shooter's ability to use their skills in a number of physically and mentally challenging stages, against a variety of targets, in difficult positions all within a limited amount of time.   The relative difficulty is equivalent to engaging 4MOA-sized targets at 1200 meters with a .308 rifle.

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 based on testing the shooters ability to rapidly develop a stable shooting position in a variety of different platform and positions (standing, sitting, kneeling, prone) while engaging one or more different sized and shaped targets from 75 to 350 meters in distance.

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 highest point totals at the end of the day are awarded trophies.

What equipment is required?

The Canadian Rimfire Precision Series is a .22lr rimfire competition series.  Only .22lr rimfire rifles are permitted.

Magazine fed rifles are recommended as the string of fire is commonly 10 rounds and is a timed stage.

The shooter must wear appropriate eye and ear protection.

Chamber flags are required and MUST be used at all times when not actively shooting at string of fire.

A shooter may bring and use a shooting bag or bags of their choice.

A bipod or sling is recommended for positional shooting.

A typical course of fire will be between 50-100 rounds. Please bring some extra in case of tie shoot-offs.

Tripod use is only permitted in the Open class. No tripods are permitted in Production Class.

Production Class is only allowed one (1) shooting bag for support - the bag must fit within a 1-gallon bucket with the lid closed. No shooting bag limits for Open Class.
