JAN. 8, 2011 (Charlottesville, Virginia) HIGH POWER RIFLE MATCH

1570 Old Lynchburg Road, Charlottesville, VA 22903

Please note that this match will be held on the SECOND SATURDAY OF JANUARY.

(A command decision was made to bump the January match from New Year’s morning. Please attend on Saturday, January 8, 2011, instead.)

SPONSOR: The Rivanna Rifle and Pistol Club
1570 Old Lynchburg Road, Charlottesville, VA 22903

RULES: Rules will be as printed in the latest edition of the NRA High Power Rifle Rule Book.

ELIGIBILITY: Open to anyone. NRA and Virginia State Shooting Association membership is encouraged.

ENTRIES: Entries must be made the day of the match at the range. No reservations or advance entries will be accepted. For general information see our club web page at or contact:
Mr. Steve Dellinger - 434-589-5338

ENTRY FEES: A single $15.00 fee for entry in the match will be charged ( $4.50 of this fee goes to the NRA as a registration fee for the match ). Anyone wishing to shoot for practice on the second relay will be required to pay a $5.00 target fee. Competitors for record take priority for positions on the line over practice shooters.

SQUADDING: Two relays will be squadded at 9:00am and 11:00am on a first come basis. It is strongly recommended that you arrive at the range by 8:00am to ensure a position in the first relay. Relays are limited to 20 competitors per relay, 2 relays (40 competitors) per day. Competitors shooting for record will receive priority over all entries. Competitors reporting for the second relay must sign up on the sign up sheet at the desk.

SCORING: Scoring will be done by the competitors with targets on the frames.

CHALLENGES: The value of any shot may be challenged at no charge and the match supervisor's decision as to the shot value will be final.

SIGHTING: Ten (10) minutes unlimited single feed sighting shots any position before each relay.
This will be your only sight in period during the match.

COURSE: A modified National Match Course of 50 shots for score fired at 100 yards.
Stage 1: 20 shots for score, standing, single feed, SR1 target, 20 minutes.
Stage 2: 10 shots for score, sitting, SR1 target, 60 seconds, with magazine change.
Stage 3: 10 shots for score, prone, SR21 target, 70 seconds, with magazine change.
Stage 4: 10 shots for score, prone, single feed, MR31 target, 10 minutes.
Match: Aggregate of stages 1, 2, 3 and 4. 50 shots total.

RIFLE: Any center fire rifle of .22 caliber or greater equipped with metallic sights and capable of being reloaded during the rapid fire strings.

CLASSES: The NRA classification system will be used. Individuals who have not been classified and do not have a temporary classification (i.e. have not fired any NRA competition in the last 3 yrs.) will fire in the Unclassified class. Rule 19.6, Assigned Classifications, will be used.

COACHING: No coaching on the firing line will be permitted. (This rule is not enforced for beginner or novice shooters)

AWARDS: All awards will be cash or NRA award points. Approximately 50% of the entry fee will be returned as awards to the overall match winner and the class winners. A class will be established by a minimum of two competitors and one additional award will be given for each three competitors in a class. If there are less than three competitors in a class they will be combined with the next higher class. No individual will win more than one award in any match.

LOCATION: The range is located just outside of Charlottesville, Virginia. From I-64 take the 5th Street exit, number 120. Competitors need to proceed south 4.2 miles on Rt. 631 (Old Lynchburg Rd.) to Deerfield Lane. A sign for the range is on the right. The rifle range is the first right after entering the range gate (look for the signs).


NOTES: As this match is popular the firing positions fill very quickly. I strongly urge that you arrive 1 hour early for either relay. A sign up sheet is used for positions on the second relay and will be strictly enforced. See the range officer on arrival to sign up. No name on sheet, no position on the line. Bring sufficient ammunition for the match. Recommendation is 80 rounds to cover sighting shots and potential alibi rounds. Food and drinks are not available at the range so come prepared. Even though the firing line is covered and concrete floored during rainy weather the line and range are subject to free flowing and standing water so plan accordingly with ground cover for prone firing and proper foot wear.

See our club website at for additional information.

Please note:
This is a 100-yard “reduced course” match.
All firing is done from 100 yards.

So, instead of actually shooting at 200 yards, 300 yards, and 600 yards, The target sizes are reduced accordingly to simulate targets at the “National Match” distances.

Each target has scoring rings from the X-ring to the 5-ring.
Here are some scans of the target centers to give you an idea of the size of the targets.

200 yard target


300 yard target


600 yard target
