NorNev Precision Rifle


Please do not approach or congregate at any range, unless a PVGC Range Safety Officer (RSO) for that range/match is present. If the RSO is not present, please wait outside the gate. If the gate is open and an RSO from another match is present, please wait for your match RSO outside the gate. This has become a problem when there are two PVGC matches held on the same day. Please do not bring firearms forward until directed by the RSO for the particular match you are involved in. With your help, we can keep this sport safe. Thank you.

  • Washoe County Regional Shooting Facility – 21555 Pyramid Way, Reno, NV 89510
  • Ages: 15 and up.
  • Fee: $20.00 ($15.00 for PVGC members)

What to bring:

  • A centerfire rifle in either bolt action or semi-automatic. Calibers are limited from a minimum of .223 and up to maximum size of .30 caliber. Nothing larger than .30 caliber will be allowed, also rifle/ammunition combinations with muzzle velocities exceeding 3,200 feet per second are not allowed. Common cartridges are .308 Winchester, 6mm Creedmoor, etc.
  • It is recommended that your rifle be equipped with a bi-pod and a sling. Benches and mechanical rests would not be recommended due to time constraints per stage and the requirement that you must be able to carry everything on your person just prior to engaging your targets.
  • A riflescope capable of adjusting for bullet drop at ranges well past 100 yards.
  • Enough ammunition to shoot the match, 80-100 rounds should be sufficient. Check the course of fire as posted on the NorNev Precision Rifle website and Facebook page the night before for the exact round count. Extra ammunition is always better so that you have enough rounds for zero-check and failed rounds.
  • Food and water. An emphasis should be on water given that the temperatures at the range are generally warm and there is very little shade at the range.
  • Accurate D.O.P.E. (Data Of Previous Engagement) for your rifle. It is recommended that you bring a PDA, cell phone, or Kestrel with a computer-generated ballistic solver to accurately engage the targets. Spotters will assist with bullet impacts for new shooters only.
  • A spotting scope or binoculars, if possible but not a required, to assist with scoring and spotting hits at distance.
  • Eye and ear protection.
  • Good Attitude.

What not to bring:

  • Bullets containing ANY steel or tracer.
  • Any cartridge over .30 caliber and/or rifle/ammunition combinations with muzzle velocities exceeding 3,200 feet per second.


  • Muzzle control and safe firearm handling practices will be enforced AT ALL TIMES.
  • Have your rifle zeroed and ready to go. There will be NO sight-in period. However, after NRL 22 there will be a chance for shooters to confirm zero prior to the match.
  • You must work with the squad assigned to you. You will be expected to assist with scoring, collecting brass, and spotting for other shooters in your squad.
  • Please arrive early for registration. We have a limited number of slots available for shooters on a first come first served basis.
