I have been attending some NRL22 matches at our local club and having a lot of fun. Our club lets you run what you brung and most care little about their scores eligibility to be posted, though there are a few that do. The rules have already undergone changes since inception. Initially if your rifle/scope was out of production it automatically put you in open class. Guess too many complaints about this. Now certain out of production models are allowed as determined by a board. I imagine this will be a constantly moving target and will be modified again. You are at the mercy of a board decision that the rifle you use this year will be on the approved list next year, wow! You read through all the rules and I understand why some would be discouraged. Seems it was never intended for anyone to remain in base class. Open class in this and other disciplines has always been an equipment race. Given equal ability the deeper your pockets the better your chances of finishing on top.

Yes it's true for many shooting disciplines and it's a shame. Although I will say that, in general, the top shooters could do pretty well with mediocre equipment (with good ammo) but there's a reason they're using the best equipment

One of the reasons I liked shooting CMP Rimfire Sporter so much was that you didn't need the best equipment and ammo to score well. That makes it a fun match IMO

One of the things that quickly turns me off from a competitive venue is the inevitable equipment race.
I shoot nrl base class, and as of now in no danger of being good enough to worry about winning anything. I am in it for the fun.
However, I agree nrl22 organizationally is a bit of a racquet.
They talk about it being developed as a low cost alternative to center fire prs, but then charge I think it is$70 for annual dues and have heard entry fees for some matches run as high as 200 dollars or more.

As such I am not a member and shoot base class at my local club for fun.

There are four NRL22 match venues within a 2-hour drive of me. Three of them charge $15 match fees and one charges $20. Pretty reasonable, I'd say. And they all submit scores to NRL HQ.

One neat thing about being a member and having scores submitted is, it puts you in play for their monthly prize drawing. I have several friends who have won nice things - one guy won a TBAC suppressor, another a Weibad shooting bag, and a couple have won steel target sets. They even give away guns from time to time.
