The NRL22 Discipline Is a National Long-Range Precision Rimfire (22LR) Competition. It was patterned after the NRL (National Rifle League) Centerfire program.
The monthly COF (course of fire) consists of a minimum of 5 stages provided by national (they change each month). Each stage consists of 10 shots at paper and steel targets ranging in size from 1⁄4” to 6”. Total round count is 50 per match minimum plus whatever you need to zero the rifle. We shoot from all the normal positions: offhand, kneeling, sitting, prone and strong and weak side (accommodations are made for persons with disabilities). We also use several different barricades or shooting platforms. Stage distances range from 25-300 yards.
We have four basic Divisions: Base, Lady, Air Rifle and Young Guns (ages 8-18). There are also two classes: Base (firearms and scope costing less than $1050) and Open (your budget is the limit). Required equipment includes a rifle chambered in .22LR (22 mag and .17 not allowed) with detachable 10 round magazine, sling, bipod, and scope (scope reticle should have a Christmas tree for holdovers and BDC turrets). Complete rules and monthly stage descriptions are available on the NRL22 website at nrl22.org/about/rules.
Match fees are $10.00 for all matches except Regionals and Nationals. Match fees are payable on site the day of the match. Registration is on Practiscore.com. Matches are open to the public, however only NRL22 members ($75.00 per year) are eligible to win national prizes provided by our sponsors.
