K&M Precision Rifle Training is proud to once again host the annual “K&M/Kahles Precision Rifle Competition”. As the nation’s premier and largest individual precision rifle event, we strive to always set the standard by which all other precision rifle matches are measured. Capitalizing on the unrivaled K&M Shooting Complex, the weekend will consist of K&M’s renowned 2 day Bolt Gun Competition and an optional one day “tune up”, where competitors can train on the K&M facility to prepare for the upcoming competition. Simply put, shooters highlight K&M each year on their calendars due to the camaraderie, high level of competition, professional execution and our first-class facilities.
In association with the Precision Rifle Series and primary sponsor Kahles Optics, the event draws those from across the country who wish to compete against the nation’s best professionals, military operators and the many new shooters who are just joining our discipline. It is only fitting that this match is selected as PRS qualifier and PRS AG CUP Qualifier year after year.
The competition will be high tempo with minimal “down time” between stages. K&M takes pride in hosting the most professional and efficient championship style match in the nation. The course of fire tests and trains disciplines from across law enforcement, military and practical marksman spectrums. There is not another site in the country that has the facility to support a course of fire like K&M’s.
Competitors can expect engagements from 50-1200yds at an assortment of steel, reactive and automated moving targets. Target size will vary in difficulty based on the shooters position, distance, props used and time allotted. Most stages will include “stressors”, either time and/or movement. All scoring will be transparent and balanced in order to reward the most consistent shooters. The competition requires 200 rounds to complete the course of fire and is caliber restricted to 300 WinMag and below. The course of fire will be made public at the start of each competition.

All props and other K&M infrastructure on those ranges will be available for those shooters that want some additional training time at our world class complex. No shooter will be allowed to practice or have knowledge of any stage from the match. All competitors must sign in before shooting and be issued a wrist band. COF books will be issued only after shooters are finished with the tune-up. Wrist bands will then be cut off and competitors will no longer be allowed to return to the firing lines. Tune-up hours are from 9am to 3pm on the Friday before the match. Cost for the tune up is $50.
