About the YRC

The Yellowstone Rifle Club was founded at the beginning of the twentieth century  by a group of competitive shooters looking to pursue and grow their sport by joining together with their love of shooting, and personal sacrifice to form the club that exists today.  The YRC continues to survive and grow through their efforts, all those since then, and our current members that hold these same values.

The Yellowstone Rifle Club was chartered by the National Rifle Association on January 21, 1920. The club is located at 7212 Molt Road west of Billings, Montana. The Yellowstone Rifle Club first occupied our present property in the early fifties.  The Yellowstone Rifle Club is affiliated with the National Rifle Association, the Montana Rifle and Pistol Association, and the Civilian Marksmanship Program.
The YRC has produced many champion shooters in all of the competitive disciplines throughout the years, including several Olympians, and National Champions.
