The Kestrel Precision Shootout is one of the matches in the Precision Rifle Series; a multi-event series that was created to organize a championship style point series race of the best precision rifle competitions and shooters in the nation. The Kestrel Precision Shootout will host shooters who will be faced with targets out to 1,200 yards, using semi-automatic or bolt action rifles with magnified optics.

“The partnership with Kestrel to host this match was a no-brainer. We are continuously inspired by the commitment Kestrel makes to develop products with the most trusted dependable accuracy to long range competitive shooting,” stated Tom Pohuski, Match Director at Peacemaker National Training Center. “It’s through the support of companies such as Kestrel that we are able to host these matches and introduce new competitors to the sport. With their ongoing dedication to providing shooters with the most innovative technology, Kestrel has become an integral part of growing the sport and appreciation of long range shooting.”

As the title sponsor of the match, Kestrel will be displaying their products in the store, as well as on the prize tables.  Attendees will also have the opportunity to meet and speak with Kestrel experts both the day before, and throughout the course of the match.

“Nielsen-Kellerman has always supported shooting sports, from hunters to law enforcement, military personnel and long range enthusiasts,” stated NK CEO, Alix James. “Long-range shooting is a growing sport and the Precision Rifle Series is the place where like-minded shooters can test their skills in a reality-based competition. The Kestrel ballistics meters are developed with this type of shooting in mind and we are very proud to support the PRS and look to grow along with the series.”
