What's the best PRS forum

Recommended Posts

I just purchased my first PRS style rifle and would like to enjoy a forum dedicated to that sort of shooting.  What's your favorite?

 

Thanks,

 

Trace

Not Snipershide. Used to be a great place for info but now its mostly an online bar fight spurred on by the mods and site owner.

Snipershide is ok, you just have to know who is full of crap and who isnt.  The same with every forum known to man.  There is a ton of technical knowledge there.

Snipershide is usually the go-to. It's full of a bunch of a_-holes though, so just prepare for that. I wish there was another resource that was as focused because everyone I know would jump ship in a second.

 

Remember that there's probably not another class of shooters who are as anal retentive as the PRS guys. It's probably the most tedious discipline.

Alamo Precision Rifles 20" 6.5 Creedmoor, MullerWorks barrel, Trigger Tech trigger, McMillan stock and trued Remington 700 left handed action with bottom metal of some kind that I can't remember.  It's kind of a PRS/Hunting hybrid.  Putting a Athlon Ares 4.5-27 on it.  Not a top shelf optic, but won't hold me back.

The F-class guys I know would beg to differ.

 

All the skilled PRS guys I know have given up on SH. The only top level competitors that seem to be still active are the ones that have to rep sponsors.

The benchrest guys may even top the F-Class guys.

10m air pistol is worse than BenchRest 😜

 

Sniper's Hide is 90% BS and none too subtle advertising for their friends.

 

Best thing is to go to a match or a class, hands on will impart 100x the knowledge 100x faster and save you money too. 

 

What I find about a lot of niche forums is that you get a lot of peer pressure to buy and even when you are trying not to, it worms its way in and all the sudden your practical $1000 scope becomes a $3000 scope because it really must be $2000 better. 

 

Frankly for technique and gunsmithing YouTube is the king, hope they don't censor guns.

You're probably right. I like to think of that as a competitive handloading sport more so than a competitive shooting sport.

I have generally found the F Class guys to be more friendly, but I have only shot a couple of F Class matches, so who knows...

 

Basically, SnipersHide is full of a bunch of a_-holes. Nobody is disputing that, I think.

True story. It wouldn't be as bad if it was just the members that were so toxic, but the site owner is one of the worst of the a holes.

Which is exactly why I say that there is ton of good info there, you just have to avoid some posters.  Hell, I might be one of the guys to avoid.  I dont know.

Yup.  A couple actually.  Lots of free velocity for zero work.

 

I also have a 223 AI bolt-gun built on a Terminus action.

I was close to buying a 223AI barrel after seeing you do it, then I got distracted and went 6mm Grendel instead. Might still do an Ackley someday.

I just used already chambered Keiger and White Oak barrels for my 223 Ackleys.

 

H4895 and 105 Hybrids are what you seek in the 6 Grendel.  I tried Varget and accuracy was awesome, but I had to be at max pressure to get that accuracy.

I'll buy some next time I'm playing with loads. So far 8208 and 112gr Match Burners have been doing well.

Come on out and shoot the monthly match at Triple C.  It is a friendly atmosphere without the uptight attitudes that I have seen elsewhere.  There are some good guys who show up and most are very willing to share info.   A wide variety of shooters from beginners to top shots can be found, and someone always has the latest and greatest type of gear that you get to see first hand.  I have been an infrequent attendee for the past year, but I am going to get back out there a little more often.

I've got some things to figure out and buy, before I put myself in the stress of a match...….

Meh SH is worth it if for nothing more than the classifieds. I've scored some really great deals there on glass. Accurate shooters is harder to spot the guys who are full of it

Not a forum but the TxPRC Facebook page is worth checking out.

I have shot this match a few times.  My first PRS match a few months ago.

Totally agree with Kuan. Great environment, everyone was helpful and patient.

I shoot allot of 3 gun and other action shooting sports.  So I am pretty understanding of guns and competition.

Really recommend Triple C and this match.
