Waynesboro Fish & Game will be hosting PPR matches. This is a precision rimfire shooting match based on the very popular long-range matches lie Precision Rifle Series and National rifle League. PPR is a scaled down version designed for 22lr on shorter ranges simulating the center fire matches at long range. Our matches could possibly go out to our 200-yard line, but we will mostly be shooting from barricades and positions at 25 to 100 yards.
Match will consist of 6, 2-minute stages very similar to NRL22 and PRS rimfire. Plus, an optional 50/50. Just lie we have done in the past.
All you will need for this match is a magazine fed scoped 22 rifle with a precise zero, 1 or 2 magazines holding 10 to 12 rounds total, 70 to 80 rounds of (accurate) 22lr ammo and eye & ear protection. Some things that are nice to have but not necessary are bipod mounted to the rifle and a sandbag of some sort.
This format caters to the beginner and the expert marksman but as this is a shooting match, a requirement for the shooter is that you should have a good fundamental safe fun handling habits, know how to operate your rifle and follow and understand the basic rules of gun safety.
We will have 3 classes:
Tactical: Will be target rifles weighing over 8 lbs. with target scopes unlimited magnification.
Hunter: Will be stock rifles weighing under 8lbs. with scopes of 9x max magnification.
Youth: Will be 16 and under, any rifle & scope.
Registration at 8am start shooting 9am

Whether you’re a squirrel hunter or a competitive shooter few things are as much fun as plinking with a 22 and that’s what should make this match so much fun.
