Both the Unlimited and Sporter class have 20 minutes to shoot a 25 bull target for a maximum score of 2500. For the official rules, schedule and the ARA target go to A Little History: ARA was started in April 1998 by a group of .22lr shooters who wanted a great organizaion for competitive .22lr benchrest competition. They formulated the ARA statistics on which the awards are based and they kept up with all match reports and shooter statistics. In addition, they started the ARA News and the ARA website in an effort to get the information out to all ARA participants. In 2010, ARA was bought by Dan Killough, whose goal is to continue the vision of the ARA founders by providing an honest competiitve organization that is true to .22lr shooting. The ARA has since expanded into two divisions, Unlimited and Sporter. The ARA News publication continues quarterly, and the website has been updated. One of the most extitiing changes in the ARA is the implementation of electronic scoring, which makes scoring targets faster and unbiased. Electronic scoring is optional but encouraged for all ARA clubs. Currently, ARA has clubs across the United States offering ARA matches and tournaments to anyone interested in precision .22lr bench rest shooting.
