COURSE OF FIRE: The CMP National Championship Matches is a 2,400 point aggregate comprised of three 800 point matches, with sighters at each stage. Competitors can start in position. It is not necessary to fire in both matches.

RIFLES: Service rifles that comply with CMP Highpower Rifle Competition Rules Rules 4.1 must be used.  Match rifles must comply with Rule 4.1.5.

FIREARM INSPECTIONS. All firearms, to be used in any CMP Games or CMP Service Rifle event, are required to be inspected by a CMP sanctioned armorer prior to any live fire at every event.  Competitors will be required to present all applicable scorecards to the CMP Armorer in order to complete the inspection process. To expedite the inspection process, competitors are requested to apply their competitor label to each score card. Please include the last four digits of the serial number for the firearm to be used in the bottom right hand corner of the scorecard. Upon completion of the firearm inspection process, each scorecard will receive a stamp of approval from the CMP Armorer, indicating that no safety violations or rules compliance issues were observed at the time of inspection.  Each rifle will also receive an inspection tag, verifying participation in the inspection process. Any inspection tags from prior events are to be removed at the time of inspection.

Upon conclusion of firing, any scorecard received by CMP staff which does not bear the CMP Armorer’s stamp, will be entered as “Out-of-Competition. To accommodate unforeseeable circumstances, competitors will receive a 30 minute window after completion of firing in which a fired rifle may still be inspected.

AMMUNITION: Any safe ammunition may be used in accordance with CMP Highpower Rifle and Pistol Competition Rules Rule 4.3.1.

SQUADDING: Competitors’ squadding will be drawn and issued when they check-in at the National Matches Welcome Center.
