The NRA High Power Rifle Long Range Championships kicked off Friday, July 21 at new venue Camp Atterbury on a blazing hot Indiana day that had temperatures soaring to a scorching hot 102 °F. Despite the high heat, shooters donned their heavy shooting coats to shoot two 1,000 yard matches—the Remington Trophy Match, followed by the Mustin Trophy Match.

It was the hottest day of the year in Indiana. Competitors didn't mind.


Match Director Mid Tompkins is no stranger to the NRA High Power Rifle Championships, his first year was in 1954 and he has never missed a year since. Regarding the move to Camp Atterbury, he said, “The NRA made the right decision moving to Camp Atterbury, this facility is fantastic and I would know! The surrounding area has more places to eat, more things to do, and the people here on base are very easy to work with. Even better, the airport making it easy to get here.”
