NRL22 MISSION STATEMENT

The goal of the NRL22 is to make Precision Rifle shooting more available to every community. The NRL22 understands that the shooting community is fascinated with Precision Rifle, but most localities are not fortunate enough to have a 1000-yard range. However, nearly all localities have access to 100-yard ranges and most competitors own a 22 rifle. The monthly course of fire, NRL22 Standard Target Package and standard barricades are all intended to be turnkey solutions to simple, fun and affordable Precision Rifle matches. Local clubs may use and submit scores for the monthly courses of fire to compete with the entire country. Additionally, local club’s Match Directors are encouraged to run supplemental courses of fire as well. We recommend tailoring additional courses of fire to the taste of your competitors. Longer ranges, more complicated barricades, run and gun, easier or harder additional courses of fire are just a few ways that you can expand your matches. Please share your creativity with the NRL22 community, as it just may show up in next month’s course of fire for the entire country to shoot! Have fun, stay safe, and if ever there was an opportunity to take a kid shooting, THIS IS IT!!!

NRL22 MATCH FORMAT

The NRL22 will provide a local monthly course of fire. The local monthly course of fire will always be a total of 5 stages. It will be distributed one week before the intended month (example: the December 2024 Course of Fire will be released November 24th, 2024) and will only be run during that month. Because the course of fire is known to all, it can be practiced, and allows clubs to have their Match Directors and Range Officers participate with no advantage. Because those 5 stages will be the same across the nation, all clubs will be able to participate in a larger nationwide competition. The local monthly course of fire will always have 5 stages which may consist of prone, barricades, positional or a combination of any 3. To help accommodate clubs of different experience or wants, each stage will have 2 options. Option 1 will be 100 yards or closer and utilize the NRL22 Standard Target Package and standard barricade list. Option 1 is considered to be the standard Course of Fire. Option 2 will be more “advanced”. Option 2 could have various modifications to the stage such as, but not limited to, reduced times, magazine changes, additional positions, or targets that are further than 100 yards but will not exceed 200 yards. Option 2 will not utilize the NRL22 Standard Target Package and it will be up to the Match Director to acquire additional targets. The Match Director will choose to set up each stage as either Option 1 or Option 2 so that the entire club is shooting the same targets at the same distances. Option 2 may be used in one or multiple stages or not at all. Most steel targets will be 10 points per hit with some exceptions and each month’s 5 stage course of fire will not be less than 500 points. One of these 5 stages will be designated as a timed stage to help reduce ties. OKCGC Matches are limited to 100 yards maximum and will always follow Option 1.

EQUIPMENT

 Rifle Rules

  1. Rifles must be chambered in .22 Long Rifle. This cartridge is the most common and available rimfire cartridge. At these ranges it also most closely mimics centerfire cartridges at Precision Rifle. 17 HMR, 22 Magnum and like rimfires cartridges are not allowed.
  2. Any .22 Long Rifle chambered rifle may be used, however, rifles with removable magazines must be used. Rifles with fixed tubular magazines are not allowed as they are more difficult to make safe.
  3. Any scope, iron sights, or electronic sights may be used. However, magnified rifle scopes with externally adjustable turrets and reticles designed to assist in holdover and measurement are highly recommended.
  4. Competitors may participate in the Air Rifle, Young Guns, Open, Old Guns, Adaptive, or Ladies division with an Air Rifle provided they meet the other requirements for the division they choose to compete in.
  5. Competitors may only utilize one rifle in a competition. If a breakage occurs, the competitor must get permission from the Match Director before using a different rifle.


Equipment and Positional Shooting

  1. NRL22 competitors are considered to be the most welcoming participants in any shooting sport. Sharing of equipment, especially to new competitors, is highly encouraged.
  2. Unless mentioned in the course of fire or rules below, any shooting equipment may be used; however, the use of additional props such as chairs, buckets, range equipment, etc. may not be used to assist the competitor in shooting a stage.
  3. Tripods and shooting sticks are not allowed on any stage unless the stage specifically incorporates the tripod into the stage from the NRL22 list of approved props. All competitors must use the same tripod that is provided by the Match Director.
  4. The bipod is not considered equipment and is part of the rifle system; however, it cannot be used to support the rifle while shooting in any unsupported position. Additionally, the bipod does not have to be removed while shooting in an unsupported position.
  5. A sling is designed to provide a way to carry the rifle and also to assist in unsupported positional shooting. The sling may attach at 1 or 2 points to the rifle. It may have cuffs or adjustments to aid in unsupported positional shooting. A sling is the only authorized piece of equipment that may be used in any unsupported position.
  6. The standing unsupported position means both legs are fully erect with both feet flat on the ground and the rifle being supported by a sling, hand and/or shoulder.
  7. Kneeling unsupported position means that one knee must be in contact with the ground, the other knee may be on the ground. The competitor may also sit on the leg that is on the ground. The rifle can only be supported by the knee, sling, hand and/or shoulder.
  8. In the unsupported seated position, the competitor must have their butt on the ground. The competitor may use their knees, sling, hand and/or shoulder to support the rifle.
  9. In the prone unsupported position, the competitor will be laying flat on the ground with the rifle being solely supported by the competitor’s hand and/or shoulder, a sling may be used as well. It is never acceptable to have any part of the rifle, or any part of the hand, resting on the ground to support the rifle. The ground includes a mat, tarp, bag, glove, coat, etc.
