Hmm, probably has a 12 twist and is not going to be a Long Range rifle.

You could shoot it in F Class Midrange matches off a bipod.

There is an obscure NRA Sporting Rifle category for bullseye shooting.

There are probably some "tactical" matches run within its useful range.

You could check out the silhouette shoots.
I think however the "hunting" category says no "varmint/bull barrels".

But there should be some class somewhere to do some shooting...
