The second title in the NRA Shooting Sports Game Series, NRA High Power Competition, was released today by Interactive Sports Entertainment and Marketing, Inc. "ISE"(formerly Speedco Shooting Sports, Inc.). NRA High Power Competition brings all of the fun and competition of one of the most popular forms of military style competitive shooting to the PC.

A true-to-life simulation of high power rifle shooting, NRA High Power Competition provides valuable resources which teach the rules, procedures and safety of the sport. Grant Ubl, top-ranked, competitive shooter and owner of two major long range shooting websites, long-range.com and nationalmatch.us, states, "Imagine training juniors with this game before they ever fire a live round... Think of how much this will shorten their learning curve!"

Players can shoot highly detailed civilian versions of three military service rifles (M-16, M-14, M-1 Garand) as well as three sophisticated match rifles. The game includes advanced ballistics modeling and true-to-life reloading (hand loading) systems using products from many of the industry's top manufacturers, a few of which include Springfield Armory and Bushmaster Firearms, as well as leading powder, bullet and accessory companies.

Players can use the career system to track their progress towards becoming High Master in local competitions, state championships and national championships. NRA High Power Competition can also be played against the comprehensive artificial intelligence mode which will pit the player's individual skills against some of the most competitive shooters in the world, or can be played online for the ultimate challenge. Collect gear and tune your ammunition to your rifle for the ultimate accuracy.

Choose from one of the three realistic 1000 yard High Power Ranges modeled after the actual locations in Port Clinton, Ohio; Mineral Wells, Texas and the NRA Whittington Center in Raton, NM. Other features include shooting "across the course" and long-range shooting (up to 1000 yards). A practice range is also provided for load development.
