Yes we know, there is a site that documents What the pros use in the world of competitive precision rifle shooting, or should we rather say, used to document, as it has no new information after 2019. The problem is, believe it or not, we are getting requests for an updated version of this info, because the other websites are not sharing up to date and currently relevant information. So, we decided to publish an updated post on our own PRS blog of the precision rifle equipment like actions, barrels, cartridges and rifle scopes that the professional shooters used during this 2021 PRS season. So here is the latest info for equipment PRS what the pros use.
Over the past few weeks, we have surveyed the top 10 shooters in the PRS (Precision Rifle Series) for the 2021 season, and here is the equipment that we found they are using. Bear in mind that often many of the top 20 or so shooters are sponsored by one precision rifle equipment manufacturer or more, this will scew the statistics, as they will then not only be forced to shoot with that brand, but they will also be biased towards it. Overall though, one can assumed given the tough level of competition that the PRS has reached the past few years, if a piece of equipment is not up to the task of competing there, then it will surely affect a pro-level shooter’s performance so they will not reach the top 100.
That being said though, there are only a handful of sponsored top shooters in the top 100, so looking at the top 100 PRS shooters, most will buy the equipment they shoot with so they chose that, and then those that are sponsored, also have the choice to say yes or no for a sponsor if they feel that equipment is negatively affecting their performance. With all that in mind, here is the summary of the PRS equipment used by the top 100 shooters in 2021.
What the pros use: PRS Scope
Scopes are the most searched for piece of equipment that new and seasoned shooters want to know what the pros use, and that is for good reason. Not only does all your equipment not matter, if you cannot see the target or your hits and misses to adjust accordingly, but also the fact that it is often the most expensive piece of equipment a racegun shooter owns or will buy. So buying the right one the first time is important.

The original PRS What The Pros Use series was started by Precisionrifleblog.com, but as it has not been updated and because of the amount of requests we have received for that info, we have just compiled the updated info for the 2021 season of the Precision Rifle Series in the USA and summarized it all here for you to read. Seeing as how this website, originally documenting all tactical technology, has evolved based on reader demand into a sort of PRS blog focus. It is meant for readers who are interested in the PRS equipment the pros use in the latest complete 2021 season.
