Revised USA Production Class
USARB wishes to announce a significant revision of its USA Production rifle classification. Principally changed is the price limit, which has been increased to $1500, with scope no longer included as part of the limit. The Board of Directors has undertaken this revision in an effort to revive interest in an entry level class. This new version is on a 12-month trial basis to gauge support and participation by shooters. See Rules and Classes page for other minor changes and complete details.
New USA Spring Piston Class
USARB is pleased to announce the addition of USA Spring Piston rifle classification. Sanctioning is on a 12-month trial basis to gauge support and participation by shooters. Permanent sanctioning beyond the trial period will be based on visible participation by shooters as evidenced by club competition scores posted to USARB Scoreline page. Rules for this class were developed with the cooperation of a group of respected Match Directors interested in promoting the class. The Board of Directors wishes to convey its appreciation of all members of this Committee for their leadership, effort, and end product.
