What is ARA shooting?The ARA matches are 22lr benchrest competitions. Both the Unlimited and Factory Class have 20 minutes to shoot a 25 bull target with ONE shot per bull at 50 yards for a maximum score of 2500 plus X count. Factory class rifles are defined as any magazine or tube fed rifle in production that is readily available and produced in quantities greater than 500 with MSRP of LESS than $1250.00 or is included on the ARA approved factory rifle list.firearms Additional information can be found on the ARA website – https://www.americanrimfire.com/ Unlimited class rifles are defined as all other 22lr rifles (except railguns), predominately custom firearms but also certain vintage (Winchester 52’s etc) and all modern production rifles with a MSRP GREATER than $1250.
Scoring the targets is done by “worst edge” scoring. Each bull is scored as follows:
In addition to a total score, each target is scored for total X’s. An X completely takes out the center dot.
