NRL Style Center Fire

The NRL Style Center Fire Match is a regular monthly match on the Sunday after the NRL22 match. So tell your friends and neighbors to come out and enjoy 5 or more stages of steel shooting with your Center Fire rifle.

If you are not familiar with NRL, it is a great way to experience precision rifle shooting. You will need a center fire rifle with a scope that can help with bullet drop from 100 yards to 500 yards. A bipod, sling and a couple bags to help stabilize the shooting position. We will shoot the NRL22 published stages but using centerfire rifles and the distances are 100 to 500 yards. Below are several links that talk about NRL22 and explain how the match is run.

The intent is to get out and try it! We will closely follow the NRL22 rules and monthly course of fire but we just want everyone to come out and try shooting long distances and have fun. If you have a handicap and cannot get into some of the positions, we will make accommodations. It is called Old Guns Class 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. If the group wants to do something special, we can work it in.

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!
