International Precision Rifle Sport
Bringing all Precision Rifle Nations together is our Ultimate Goal!
The International Precision Rifle Federation aims to unify the sport of Precision Rifle worldwide and set standards for competition internationally to enable a level field of play at Regional and World Championships.
The International Precision Rifle Federation has been in the making since early 2019, and the first meeting was held in Dublin, Ireland in September of 2019, represented by Ireland, South Africa, Sweden, United Kingdom, and United States.
Since then, the IPRF has grown in leaps and bounds with Nations joining and committing to set up their internal national structures as Precision Rifle sport matures in each country.
The following countries form the International Precision Rifle Federation.
