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.
Shooting garments such as heavily padded shooting coats and gloves are not allowed to be used in sporting rifle matches. Garments, that are appropriate for the prevailing weather conditions only, are allowed. Knee, elbow and shoulder pads and pads on rifle butt stocks are allowed.
Note that we have started 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.
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.
