Are you looking for a service rifle to shoot across the course events (200-600 yards) or a modern military gun for CMP Games (200 yards)? they are different. You'll note there is no weight limit in service rifle and White Oak and Compass Lake service rifle uppers are built with that in mind. You want the CMP Highpower Rifle Competition Rule book, not the CMP Games rule book. A gun meeting the category A criteria is going to be a "fun" gun, not a current highpower competition gun.

Ah, I see. Thanks for clarifying that for me! Yeah, I was looking to put one together for the service rifle events so now it looks like it's just a matter of getting on WOA waitlist.

You need to look at the correct rulebook - the high power rulebook, not the games book. There is no weight limit for a service rifle.

Grey, you mentioned White Oak, and I have been looking at their uppers, but I have also been looking at the RRA CMP uppers & rifles, is there one better than the other in your opinion? If so would you mind elaborating? Thank you.
You can't go wrong with either choice. However, RRA only (used to, I may be wrong) offer a 1:8 twist barrel. Nothing wrong with that but if think you want to shoot real heavy bullets you might want to look into a 1:7 twist. (You can request what twist you want from whiteoak) That's really the only major difference between them. Both are quality.

Depending on your skill level, I wouldn't get too wrapped up in that your first year. Put your resources into ammo and shoot whatever barrel you choose, ALOT.
I'm in my 3rd season of competition and this season will be my first in actively chasing points. I burnt one barrel out going from sharpshooter to master
