Summary

NRL22 is now a sanctioned match at FTRPA, one of just two clubs within 100 miles of Fairless Hills as of its 2021 debut. It is a .22 LR, scoped rifle-only match with varying size steel targets placed from 25 yards to 100 yards. It is shot from several different positions and barricades such as barrels, ladders, saw horses, buckets, and more. This precision rifle sport is a fun new activity that offers 5 stages that change monthly to challenge shooters of every type.
