Long-range is a sub-discipline of highpower rifle shooting which is shot at 800-1,000 yards. The matches are shot in prone only.
Ohio hosts matches for Long-range shooters on Camp Perry's 1000-yard Viale Range. Each year ORPA enters several Long-range teams into the National Matches in August.
At the 2012 Long-Range Championship, eight of the top ten spots for the master class were held by military shooters, but the two which belonged to civilians were won by ORPA members Ed Agle and Ed Shank.
ORPA's adult long-range team won first-place in the state association category.
In order to become a new Long Range Shooter, one begins in regular Highpower shooting. When range time is available, highpower shooters try shooting at the longer distances. Because Camp Perry is in Ohio, ORPA shooters have access to the range several times per year and are better prepared for Camp Perry.
