Online registration for the 2022 NRA National Matches at Camp Atterbury is open now at the NRA Competitive Shooting Web Portal. Consisting of the NRA National Championships for Precision Pistol, Smallbore Rifle and High Power Rifle, the NRA National Matches will kick off its second year in the Hoosier State on July 10 and conclude August 7. Also coming back after a hiatus is the NRA Extreme Long-Range Championship, which has shooters engaging targets at one mile and beyond.
New this year, electronic targets will be used at Camp Atterbury during the NRA High Power National Championships. NRA Competitive Shooting Deputy Director Aaron Farmer shares more details: “We will have up to 40 targets using Silver Mountain electronic target systems. Competitors will be squadded on a target and then continue to shoot on the same target all week. The only thing that will change is the starting relay for the day. We will be running three relays. No pit duty!”
Another highlight this year will be during the Smallbore Rifle National Championships. The Pershing Match, which was scrubbed in 2021 due to pandemic-related international travel restrictions, is back on for 2022. British competitors are planning to travel to the United States this summer for this historic match, which occurs every eight years.
Here is the 2022 NRA National Matches schedule:
High Power OTC
High Power Mid-Range
High Power Long-Range
July 30–August 7
For more than 150 years, the National Rifle Association has been dedicated to advancing marksmanship, as well as the country’s foremost defender of Second Amendment rights. NRA National Championships are where competitive shooters from across the country can shoot shoulder-to-shoulder and continue traditions going back to the 19th century. To celebrate the many achievements made on the firing line, Federal Ammunition and NRA Publications created a free 2021 NRA National Matches commemorative magazine with complete coverage of the inaugural year at Camp Atterbury, Indiana.
