NRA Mid Range Prone Tactical Rifle was developed about 7 years ago as discipline that will allow competitors to shoot rifles they already own without spending a lot of money on discipline specific equipment. Both “sling” and tactical rifle shooters will shoot alongside of each other. This match is ideally fired at 300, 500 and 600yds, most clubs don’t have a 600yd range, so we shoot targets at 100yds that are geometrically equivalent to the 600yd target. We will consider 200yd matches in the future. See the attached copy of NRA High Power Rifle Rules for more information on equipment and match format. We will not weigh triggers or rifles.
This was a discipline designed to be tactical in nature using AR-15 and AR-10 type rifles. We will also allow M1 and M1A rifles. A Harris type bipod or range bag/ruck sack can be used as a front rest. No F Class type bipods and no sandbags or hard rest are allowed. This is not bench rest on your belly type of match. The intent is to shoot what you have and not be a high dollar equipment type of match. A soft rear rest without “ears” is allowed. No sandbags or stocks with an extension that rest on the ground are allowed. Suppressors or muzzle breaks are not allowed. If you have a muzzle break, we will squad you on the final relay or next to some who is comfortable shooting next to you.
Metallic, telescopic, red dot or holographic sights are allowed. Scopes are limited to 15 power, you can use a variable power scope greater than 15x, just set it to 15x or less. Red dot and holographic scopes don’t seem to work very well because dot is larger than the aiming black.
- Shooting mats: A piece of carpeting or a commercial shooting mat is all that is needed. We will have carpeting available, best if you bring your own. Some find elbow pads useful. A shooting mat that secures the feet of the bipod is not allowed.
- Ear protection is required
- Eye protection is required
- Sweat band or towel can be useful when it’s warm out
- 10, 20 or 30 round magazines
- Spotting scope and stand. We will have scopes available if you don’t own one.
- We have a rifle and ammo available if you do not own one. Please notify me in advance if you need a rifle or ammo.
This is “fun match,” we strictly follow all safety rules, we are very flexible regarding equipment and rifle rules. Match winner has bragging rights!
