Steel silhouette match allows you to shoot 20 metallic knockdown 1/5 scale ram silhouettes, using .22 caliber rimfire rifle at 200 yards off of a bench. One shot per silhouette; if you miss, you move onto the next silhouette once you start to shoot silhouettes no going back to swingers. Score will be the total number of silhouettes knocked over. Upon arrival, you must sign in to determine which order you shoot. Unlimited sighter shoots on swingers. All relays will have a 20-minute time limit. Any front rest with feet and rear bag allowed. No one-piece rest allowed. Any .22 long rifle ammunition is allowed, except stingers. There is no limitation on the magnification allowed in scopes. You may shoot 1 week ahead. You will be expected to go down range and reset silhouettes. Cost of the match is $5 per relay.
NRL22 match is loosely based on the centerfire precision rifle matches that
are so popular right now but it is designed for .22lr only. We will have steel
targets and swingers set at varying distances and the course will change every
month. The one big difference is that we will always shoot from a bench! No
prone, no barricades, no moving from one obstacle to another.
There will be two classes to start with, basic and open. Basic
class is any rifle and scope combination that does not exceed $1050. This is to
encourage anyone with a “squirrel rifle” tucked away in the closet to allow
them to come out and compete and not have to compete with the guys with
the custom rifles. This is meant to keep the competition fair for all shooters.
The other class is the “open” class. In this class basically anything goes as long
as it is .22lr only. Target size will increase or decrease with the distance
placed, time limit will remain the same.
This is a fun shoot. Any rimfire rifle, any scope magnification, any rifle weight are all acceptable. Please no one piece sleds. Bipods have been allowed.
Course of fire is 25 shots in 25 minutes plus unlimited sighters. The target used is the IBS 50 yrd rimfire target. It's a 25 bull target. Each bull is 1.75 inches in size. The 10 ring is 0.5 inch
We use best edge scoring which means count the highest score line touched.
National match rules differ.
Matches are held every 4th Sunday of the month 8 am. To 11 am. No matches held November thru February. Except our annual new year's day match January 1st at 9 am.
