Precision rimfire popularity continues to grow in Canada with competitions like the Canada’s Gun Store X/22 Challenge Series and the Canadian Rimfire Precision Series (CRPS). Whether you’re competing or just hitting the range for fun, there are a lot of PRS-style rifles to choose from. So which one is the best for you?
Well, that’s where Womfat comes in. Womfat (aka Matt) is a Canadian firearms content creator and an avid PRS enthusiast. He regularly competes in the Outlaw Rimfire Precision Series (ORPS) and is one of the panellists on the Rimfire Nation podcast (well worth checking out).
