GENERAL SPORTS RULES for Small Bore Rifle
Where conflicts between NRA rules and USPFC rules occur (i.e. awards formula, eligibility of competitors and substitution after competition begins), always use USPFC rules. (See General Sports Rules.)
Small Bore Rifle shooters with a classification from a recognized shooting sports organization (RSSO) shall shoot in their classification for their discipline. Shooters without an RSSO classification shall be classified based upon scores they shot in USPFC matches, if available.
Small Bore Rifle shooters who have no classification will shoot in the individual “Unclassified” classification in accordance with USPFC Federation Rules. The classification gained in the “Unclassified” classification will be used for the competitor’s classification in the Team Event.
NOTE: Any competitor desiring to shoot in a higher classification may do so, BUT ONLY ONE CLASSIFICATION HIGHER THAN THEIR CURRENT CLASSIFICATION and then return to their assigned classification at the completion of the match. A competitor who does not participate in any matches for five (5) years may be reclassified to the next lower classification.
