I’ve shot hight power but going to check out PRS this year and give it a run.

I’ll be building a PRS rifle... just wondering how many PRS guys we have on the fire.

I’ve shot these types of matches for many years. I’ll be shooting the Brawl at Rifles Only next month. I haven’t shot in as many as I used to, but I’m sure I could help.

I've been shooting anywhere from 9 to 25 PRS style matches per year for 10+ years now. I love the sport. Can I answer any questions?

What sort of spotting scope do you recommend?

Are there any budget spotting scopes that are optically "good enough"? I know some of the budget scopes like the Konus aren't very durable, but for the price I can buy 2 and have one as a spare and still be $$$ ahead.

Every time I look through a less than quality spotter, I cringe. I can't bring myself to buy one. I've run my 15-45 Zeiss spotter for 11 yrs. Still awesome. Last weekends match a fellow shooter had a new Vortex 27-60x85 Razor HD with their separate Razor HD reticle 22x eyepiece. Both, together, were awesome. Glad I won a 1/2 off "any" Vortex optic certificate 2 weeks back.

Spotters are one area where, for the most part, you get what you pay for.

I’ve been very happy with my Gen 1 Razor 85mm with 30x MRAD eyepiece.

I shoot about 12-15 matches a year and have been doing it since 2013. I started doing it to improve my shooting skills for hunting and give me confidence in the field...but then I quickly got sucked in by the game and now my primary focus is where I finish.
