RCBS, Hoppe’s and Champion Continue Support of Precision Rifle Series

OVERLAND PARK, Kansas – RCBS and Hoppe’s, along with Champion Traps & Targets, is pleased to announce their continued sponsorship of the Precision Rifle Series (PRS) for 2020.

For the current season, RCBS has pledged its support to the PRS by serving as a 2020 Affiliate Sponsor and as the Official Reloading Equipment sponsor for a second year in the row. In a similar capacity, Hoppe’s will serve as the Official Gun Care Product while Champion acts as the Official Target of PRS. All three brands have pledged their support of the PRS and are committed to helping the organization to grow the sport of precision rifle shooting across the country.

“It is with an extreme amount of gratitude that we welcome the brands of RCBS, Hoppe’s and Champion into the Precision Rifle Series,” said PRS Owner Shannon Kay. “We are so grateful for the support that each of these brands provides to the series, as their products and people align with the values of PRS competitors nationwide. Without their support the growth of precision rifle shooting would not be possible.”

For the current season, RCBS, Hoppe’s and Champion will support both the Regional Series one day matches as well as the most sought-after national level matches. RCBS has bolstered its support of the series by supporting the Bushnell Tactical Vapor Trail Siege and the Bushnell Tactical GAP Grind Pro/Am along with several other matches on the schedule. The brand will also serve as one of the primary sponsors of the most elite series on the PRS circuit, the PRS AG Cup.

“The PRS community represents a collective group of shooters who align with the principals and values that we hold close at RCBS, Hoppe’s and Champion,” said Jason Slinkard, Director of Shooting Accessories for Vista Outdoor. “We know that these competitors expect the highest level of performance from the products they use and we have made it a priority to incorporate their feedback into the very identity of our brands.
