NRL22 MATCH

Waynesboro Fis and Game will be hosting NRL22 Matches again this year.  NRL22 is a precision rimfire shooting match based on a very poplar long range matches like Precision Rile Series and National Riffle League.  NRL22 is 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.

We will be following NRL22 Course of Fire that they post on their website monthly in the dowload section.  Consisting of 5, 2-minut stages Plus a bonus stage designed by us.  If we get enough interest and have shooters that want to join NRL we can submit our clubs scores for the rankings, classes, prizes and to see how you stack up against other shooters across the nation.  For more info go to nrl22.org and check out the FAQ section and also the Download section for COFs.

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 a 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 good fundamental safe gun 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 8 lbs. with scopes of 9x max magnification. Youth will be 16 and under, any rifle & scope.

Registration at 8:00 am, start shooting at 9:00 am.  If you are interested and want to get on the mailing list for updates or have questions, email: wborofg.nrl22@gmail.com

Match Fees $20.00 for members, $25.00 for non-members + a $10.00 50/50 that will be a one shot challenge (similar to a turkey shoot)

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.
