Precision Rifle 22 LR
By far the fastest growing discipline in the UK is Precision Rifle 22 LR (PR22). We currently have over 130 shooters actively posting scores onto the leaderboard, with clubs across the whole of the UK.
Unlike centrefire PR22 is run at a grassroots level. We run an affiliate club program that any club may join, we publish regular course of fires for them to shoot (or they can make up their own) and then they send us the results which we publish on the national leaderboard.
Most clubs run regular matches, some one or twice a week and many are open to guests. We have a great club finding tool for you to located the nearest PR22 club.
If you’d like to see PR22 being held at your local club then visit our club affiliation page. We are always looking for more affiliates.
