Well its official, we will be hosting National Rifle League 22 matches here at Massey's!!!!
Lets start off by talking what is NRL22. The goal of the National Rifle League 22 is to make Tactical Rifle shooting more available to every community. The National Rifle League 22 understands that the shooting community is fascinated with Precision Rifle, but most localities are not fortunate enough to have a 1000 yard range. However, nearly all localities have access to 100 yard ranges and most shooters own a 22 rifle.
The NRL22 was created to provide a way for shooters that are looking to get into the sport of precision rifle shooting the opportunity to do so without having to invest a lot of money in gear and travel.
I’ve been getting many questions about whether or not scopes are allowed in our NRL22 matches.
Scopes are highly recommended!!! Scopes with adjustable turrets are also highly recommend as we shoot from distances from 25 yards to 100 yards and every distance in between so you’ll have to quickly adjust your scope for these distances. We shoot at targets as small as 1/4” so good optics make that much easier.
We also highly recommend an adjustable nylon sling for your rifle, this will will make the unsupported positional shooting (standing , kneeling , sitting , prone) much easier to achieve a solid , stable shooting position.
It’s best to use either a bolt action, or semi automatic rifle with a 10 round magazine capacity. Each stage requires you to fire 10 rounds in 2 minutes or less.
Lastly we strongly recommend some sort of a bipod and good rear bag for these matches.
None of these items are required, but they are allowed and they will make shooting these matches much easier and more fun and will radically increase your score!
If you have any questions on what equipment to buy you can find us at the range and we’ll show you and explain the options available.
