The Precision Rifle World Championships are organised by the International Precision Rifle Federation (IPRF), there are currently over 24 countries that are members of the federation, the UK being one of the founding members. 

A World Championship is ran every year, alternating between Rimfire and Centrefire, 2025 is a Rimfire WC year, 2024 is Centrefire.
