High Plains Precision is proud to bring the first SIG SAUER NRL HUNTER GAMES to Arena Training Facility. Located on the one-of-a-kind range in South Georgia, this match will be 8 stages simulating scenarios commonly encountered while hunting in the Southeast. Further info will be forthcoming to include on-site lodging and a possible train up the afternoon before.

Target distances ranging from 175 to 800 yards, with average distance of 450 yards. With 8 hunting simulated stages, the round count will be 32-64 rounds, depending on 1st round impacts vs 2nd round impacts/misses. 

There are no divisions or classes. 

All rifles used to compete in the SIG SAUER NRL HUNTER GAMES series shall weigh in at 16lbs or less with all dedicated support equipment attached. Rifle consists of barrel, muzzle devices, trigger, action, stock/chassis, scope, and bipod (if used). A sling is no longer included in the weight, since it is used for safely carrying a rifle, and we want to encourage safe moving between stages.

Rifle mounted electronics: Due to the surge of consumer video equipment availability, passive rifle mounted electronics used for video recording which are mounted on a rifle system will not be included in the weight of the rifle. Assistive electronic devices such as E-data cards, hard mounted range finders, or timers, etc which aid the user during the stage time, will be included in the overall rifle weight.

At the start of the stage, the rifle should not have a magazine loaded (this is a safety consideration to prevent loaded firearms outside the shooting area).

There is no minimum power factor requirement, as seen in the two-day NRL Hunter Series. 

There are no minimum caliber requirements, however calibers may not exceed a 30 cal and must have a Muzzle Velocity maximum of 3275 fps.
