Over the course of 21 days in July, the NRA High Power Rifle Championships will be held for the second year at Camp Atterbury, near Edinburgh, IN, attracting eager competitors from all across the world. If you happen to be one such competitor, don’t tarry! Only the first 240 entries will be accepted for each discipline, after which a standby list will be created to accommodate other entries. Entries may either be mailed or done online, though the latter option is strongly preferred. Receipt of entry will be acknowledged only by email.

All Juniors (17 and under) must be accompanied by an adult (21 and over). In addition, effective immediately, “it is the policy of the National Matches not to award firearms to junior competitors that are not of legal age to receive the firearm directly from the FFL holder. Firearms will also no longer be awarded to junior teams where the Team Captain is not of legal age to accept the firearm directly from the FFL holder.”
For our foreign friends, a W-8 will need to be completed upon arrival. Foreign competitors will be taxed 30 percent of awards to be paid at the event, regardless of the amount won. Trophies and plaques are obviously exempt from this clause.
All competitors must pick up a packet for their particular discipline. Dates to pick up said packets are as follows:
Thursday, July 5: NRA High Power 9:00 a.m.
Wednesday, July 11: One Mile Shot 9:00 a.m.
Thursday, July 12: NRA Long Range 1:00 p.m.
Tuesday, July 17: NRA Mid-Range 9:00 a.m.
Without exception, an ID badge for each team member must be provided before packets will be issued.
As far as lodging is concerned, on site rooms and cabins will be available to all competitors (18 and over). To book a room, or for any questions surrounding lodging, please call (812) 526-1128. Should the onsite options not suffice, there are also a number of hotels nearby, to include Charwood Suites and Johnson County Park (a campground), offering 18-night stays for high power competitors only.
Onsite meals can be obtained for breakfast, lunch and dinner at the House All Ranks Club, Subway, Dave’s Hot Dogs, and DFAC.
