NRA Approved High Power Rifle National Match Course

The most popular form of organized rifle-only competitive shooting in the United States is NRA High Power Competition. High Power Competition encompasses primarily Service Rifle and Match Rifle.  Apart from a sling, there are no mechanical crutches in High Power--your arms and body must support the full weight of the rifle as you engage the target from a variety of positions. The vast majority of High Power matches are iron sights only. These factors place a premium on good eyesight, training, and overall fitness.

Every NRA High Power Rifle match for which classification records are kept is a multiple or a combination of one or more strings of fire.

Match Report

 It was a beautiful day to shoot with the humidity finally going away today. Turnout was low again, but everyone who shot had a good time regardless of the score they fired.

 The iron sighted AR-15’s dominated today with Mark shooting the highest score and Paul right behind him. The optical sight shooters experienced some growing pains what with optics being new to NRA high power rifle competition. I’m sure the scores will be better at the October match when we shoot the National Match Course again.  All the details can be found in the August Match Report.

 Our next match will be the High Power Sporting Rifle match on September 23rd. This is a great introduction to HP rifle completion match and I urge you to give it a try. More details will be forthcoming as the match date nears.

 Thanks for the faithful few competitors who keep this program afloat. Let’s see some new faces at our next match. And don’t forget the Woodstock match on September 21st you folks with old military rifles who are just itching to shoot them.
