The National Rifle Association’s iconic National Matches are celebrating its fourth year as a unified competition with Camp Atterbury as the home venue. An Indiana National Guard training facility near Edinburgh, Indiana, Camp Atterbury is located about 37 miles south of Indianapolis. The NRA first moved its High Power National Championships to Camp Atterbury in 2017, with the Precision Pistol and Smallbore Rifle Nationals making their home at the National Guard base two years later.

For more than 150 years, the National Rifle Association of America has advanced the state of marksmanship while serving as the country’s foremost defender of the Second Amendment. The NRA National Matches at Camp Atterbury are where high-level competitive shooters from around the country can shoot shoulder-to-shoulder to determine the best of the best on the firing line.

This year’s calendar returns to the traditional National Matches schedule, starting with the Precision Pistol National Championships, followed by the Smallbore Rifle National Championships and ending with the High Power Rifle Nationals, specifically the Long-Range and Palma Championships.

Additionally, some of the match days have been consolidated to make attending the NRA National Matches a bit easier for competitors this summer.
