The 22LR Precision Rifle Match is a regular monthly match on the 2nd Saturday. So tell your friends and neighbors to come out and enjoy 5 or more stages of steel shooting with your 22LR rifle.
If you are not familiar with 22LR Precision Rifle, it is a great (and cheap) way to experience precision rifle shooting. You will need a 22 rifle with a scope that can help with bullet drop from 50 to 100 yards (8 inches) and parallax adjustment from 25 to 100 yards. A bipod, sling and a couple bags to help stabilize the shooting position. Below are several links that talk about NRL22 which is very similar to our 22LR Precision Rifle match and gives you a general idea how the match is run.
The intent is to get out and try it! We just want everyone to come out and try shooting 22LR Precision Rifle to simulate shooting the big guns and have fun. If you have a handicap and cannot get into some of the positions, we will make accommodations. It is called OG and if they decide to sit in a recliner and use a tripod for every stage, then that is how they will shoot it. Just come shoot if you are interested. We normally add a couple bonus stages that means longer distances (200 yards) and/or moving targets!
Having a great (expensive) gun is not the key to performing well at this kind of match, knowing how to build a solid position on unfamiliar objects is the key to making good shots. Practice, Practice, Practice! I have seen a box stock Ruger 10/22 with subsonic ammo shooting MOA groups.
