So with the start of the new Precision Rifle Series season kicking off, many new shooters want to know again what is the precision rifle equipment the top shooters used most recently, so here is an updated post for the precision rifle equipment like actions, barrels, cartridges and rifle scopes that the professional shooters used during this past 2022 PRS season.
As mentioned in the previous “What The Pros Use” posts, you must note that often the majority of the top 20 or so shooters are sponsored by one or more manufacturers, so they do not necessarily use what they choose, but rather what they get sponsored. Still, as tight as the level of competition at the top of the PRS log is, if one of them there uses a piece of equipment, whether sponsored or not, you can know that it is up to the task and among the best.
Without further mumbo jumbo, here is the list of the PRS equipment used by the top 100 shooters in 2022.
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.
