I was a regular for a while, but it conflicts with other priorities. I was very competitive with just a Savage Mark II and an Athlon scope that all kept me in the Base class, even though I would place high in overall. You can be VERY good with a cheap gun before getting much more advantage with the expensive gear.

Desert Sportsmans Rifle & Pistol Club is the only local host I know with the matches on the 2nd Sat: https://dsrpc.org/nlr22-match-range-7/

Of course, that's the Las Vegas area. You make no mention of where you are.

Entry level spotting scope, bipod, rear and front bags

Stock Class- any bolt action with 5 mag, scope. Total amount for gun and scope. Tops out at $1500 retail

good starter CZ 457/455 with Vortex scope with a AO ( side focus) down to 25 yards

Dreamer would be a Vudoo barreled action, MDT chassis, with a high end Night force or March optic

No, but you'll pay $10 guest fee at the gate, and can only go unescorted when going to a match.

I'll try to answer your questions about the NRL22 match at DSRPC. The NRL22 posts the course of fire for each month on their website several days before the 1st of the month. Their website is nrl22.org. The course of fire is under "Downloads." Their rules are also on their website. In addition to the 5 NRL22 stages we usually have 2 club stages. The NRL stages will have targets from 25 to 100 yards. The club stages can go out to 240 yards. The match is the 2nd Saturday of the month.

As far as equipment you will need:
1. A rifle chambered in 22lr that is reasonably accurate. Mac is correct, he is competitive with a Savage. Currently, the NRL22 has 3 classes of rifles, Open, Base, and Air Rifle. A Base class rifle has limited modifications and a MSRP limit of $1200 for the rifle and scope combined.
2. The rifle needs to have a scope with some type of a holdover reticle. 22lr has a trajectory like a rainbow. You will probably not be able to dial elevation for each shot.
3. At least 2, 10 round magazines. Most stages will be 10 rounds. A few will be 12 rounds.
4. A bipod and rear bag. You will end up needing a front support bag, but I recommend you try a few before purchasing one. The people that shoot this match are very helpful to new shooters and will be happy to loan bags and make recommendations.
5. Bring at least 100 rounds of ammo that your rifle likes. The match will be about 75 rounds and the rest can be used during the sight in period.
6. If you use a sling to shoot positional, bring it.
7. Eye protection, ear protection, and an empty chamber indicator.

If this sounds like something you might be interested in, you can come out and watch a match, spectators are always welcome.
