ELR Matches

Dedicated ELR shooting matches are becoming more popular.  With the recent success of events like the King Of 2 Mile’s which is put on by the Fifty-Caliber Shooters Association (FCSA), other match directors and organizers are working to bring more ELR matches online.  ELR is defined as 1500+ yards, but all targets don’t need to be at that distance to qualify as an ELR match.  As long as more than 1/2 of the targets are located beyond 1500 yards, the match is considered to be an ‘ELR’ Match.  Other guidelines and best practices are described in this document, but for the most part, match directors have a great deal of freedom in their Course Of Fire (COF).

Many PRS and similar style matches have some targets past 1500 yards, but focus more on close ranges.  These matches are considered and listed below as matches with ELR components.  It’s fun to ponder the equipment trade-offs when dealing with targets from 300 to 1500+ yards and these events require a great deal of diversity in skill set and equipment to succeed.
