Lapua, world-renowned for producing the finest rimfire cartridges, is pleased to announce their renewed support of the Practical Rimfire Challenge as the title sponsor.

The Lapua Practical Rimfire Challenge Series (LPRC) is held at the Peacemaker National Training Center in Glengary, WV. The series is an affordable 5-match series leading up to the finale in October.  The LPRC is designed to test the .22LR rifle shooter, ammunition and optics out to 300 yards. While most stages focus on long-range positional shooting skills, shooters will encounter stages set in natural terrain, stages with movement, Olympic stages of fire, Collegiate stages of fire and/or smallbore style stages. Shooters can select from the semi-auto or bolt action division.  All rifles must be chambered in .22LR and can be fitted with magnified optics. All legal, safe, and responsible amateur and professional shooters are welcomed.

Registration for the LRPC is now open and will kick off this March.  Match dates are as follows:

  • Series Match 1 March 21/22
  • Series Match 2 May 25/26
  • Series Match 3 June 22/23
  • Series Match 4 July 27/28
  • Series Finale October 5

“We’re excited to return as the title sponsor of the Practical Rimfire Challenge,” commented Morgan Joy-Twenter, Director of Communications. “Peacemaker does an excellent job of running the series of matches and it’s evident in the growing attendance.”  For more information on the LPRC visit
