The High Power Sporting Rifle match is a great introduction to NRA high power rifle competition. This course of fire is shot with any center fire rifle weighing less than 9.5 pounds and having a magazine capacity of 4 rounds or more. The 9.5 pound limit is with an empty magazine, and without a sling. The sling may be used in all positions except standing. Metallic and optical sights are both allowed. You will be in position and the rifle loaded when the command to FIRE is given in all stages of the match.
As of 30 July 2018
This year we are going to introduce a modest award program for our high power rifle matches.
Two types of awards will be given: metal pins (if they are available) in the shape of the high power rifles we generally compete with and certificates redeemable for an entry fee in our subsequent high power rifle matches.
Below you will find the policy we are planning on following. If we have enough classified shooters to justify a class award in the NRA Approved matches we may add such in the future.
The entry fee certificate will be the award in this discipline.
Two certificates will be awarded, one for High Optical Sights and one for High Metallic Sights.
No High Overall award will be awarded since almost invariably the High Optical Sight shooter is the High Overall.
- Open to all SLSC member. Non-members need a member sponsor to participate.
