Bushnell has been named the Official Riflescope Sponsor of the Precision Rifle Series and title sponsor for the PRS Southeast Regional Series.
“We are beyond proud to officially announce our 2019 partnership with Bushnell Elite Tactical as the official riflescope of the Precision Rifle Series,” said Shannon Kay, PRS director. “The Bushnell Elite Tactical brand has taken center stage in the PRS, and their commitment to building relationships and incredible optics makes them perfect partners of the PRS.”
Bushnell has been making high-end precision optics for the PRS for years. The Elite Tactical line includes the new DMR-II Pro and XRS-II that are designed specifically for PRS-style competition, delivering precisely aimed rounds at extreme distances. Crafted to exacting standards, they both offer ED Prime Glass for the richest color and contrast, even in low-light conditions.
“The Precision Rifle Series is a fast-growing, highly-competitive shooting discipline that has become one of the ultimate proving grounds for precision optics,” said Matt Rice, brand manager for Bushnell. “It’s where our long range Elite Tactical scopes are born, and we are excited to see our products put to the test with the amazing shooters on the PRS Series trail. We’re equally excited to be the official riflescope of an organization that is growing and promoting shooting across the country.”
This year Bushnell Elite Tactical will again be a title sponsor of the largest PRS competition in the world, the Bushnell Tactical GAP Grind Pro/Am with over 400 competitors in 2018. The match format will again be a Professional/Amateur individual and team match to promote sportsmanship and welcome new shooters to the competition scene. Top competitors, new competitors, and everyone in between from around the country are invited to attend. The match will be hosted at the K&M Shooting Complex in Finger, Tennessee October 4 to 6.
Bushnell will additionally be the title sponsor of the Bushnell Tactical Vapor Trail Steel Siege, another incredible PRS Pro Series Competition taking place on September 28, 2019 in Spickard, Missouri.
PRS is an annual points race for several series, including the PRS Bolt Gun Series, PRS Gas Gun Series and PRS Club Series. The matches involve the practical application of long-range rifle shooting born out of military, law-enforcement and hunting scenarios.
The PRS’ Southeast Regional Series, sponsored by Bushnell Elite Tactical, covers 10 Southeastern states and has already held several matches in 2019. Divisions include Tactical, Production, Lady, Senior, Junior and Military/Law-Enforcement. For more information on upcoming matches, visit https://www.precisionrifleseries.com/profiles/clubs/SE.
