Long Range Precision is a handgun, rifle and black powder rifle discipline that aims to refine and develop the accuracy of firearms, ammunition and equipment for shooting at extreme distances.
Long Range Precision Shooting aims to develop and encourage long-range competition shooting; achieve extreme accuracy in firearms, ammunition, equipment and shooting methods; and promote experimentation to achieve these goals.
The rifle events cover rifles chambered in everything from the .22 Long Rifle up to the massive .50 BMG calibre. These matches are shot over a number of different distances, with a maximum of 2000m.
Likewise, the handgun events vary from rimfire to centrefire and can be shot out to 500m.
The core matches for Long Range Precision Shooting require the shooter to be able to deliver five shots from a cold barrel, as they would in a normal in-the-field situation. Also, it must be shot without the use of benches, wind flags, etc.
To be successful, the competitor will need to learn to read the wind and other conditions and understand their firearm and its ballistics completely.
