Thumbs up precision matches for gas guns?

Does anyone compete in any gas gun only (non bolt action, but semi-auto rifle) precision matches?

What are the specs on your rifle like make, barrel length, caliber, optic?

I looked on Practiscore, the closest one in Norcal is at the Palomino Valley Gun Club in Reno: https://practiscore.com/pvgc-gas-gun-september/register

Most matches have a gas gun division

True. I looked at some of the scores of PRS matches and the top competitors are shooting bolt guns in open division.

Is it hard for gas guns to compete against the bolt guns, even though they are chambered in the same caliber i.e. 308 Winchester or 6.5 Creedmore?

There was only one gas gun competitor at this PRS match in Hollister. But finished overall 34 out of 39 competitors.

haven't shot a gas gun match yet, but plan to in the coming months
- mainly shoot bolt guns

anyways, after speaking to a few guys that shoot precision gas gun matches

typical setup is:
AR-15
18-20" barrel
popular rifles seem to be JP, seekins, or some kind of custom build
70-75gr bullets, .223
5-25x optic, same as a bolt gun

there are a few guy who run AR-10's, but I dont think it's worth it for gas gun only matches

shooting gas gun in PRS, I would say definitely AR-10 with 6cm or 6GT

That is true regarding using 223 vs 308 in gas gun matches. It's more affordable to miss with a 223 vs 308 (or something like how the quote goes).

If there are any precision gas gun matches up in Norcal, I guess I can try it my bull barrel varmint upper.

Too bad Quantified Performance doesn't hold matches here:

nothing in NorCal to my knowledge

you can shoot any regional PRS match with a gas gun

but that would be typical Virginia with par time

nothing time plus, like a true gas gun match
