Now knowing that you're from New York some of the other members from New York will chime in.
AR15/M4 competitions are getting more & more popular.
Even in my little redneck area of Florida the local range is going to start having Action AR15 competitions. As far as targets & ammo the organizer of the competition will dictate what is to be used. As far as websites you'll have to google some for your local area.
Can local gun stores & gun ranges help?
Also practice as much as possible because if you can't meet the organizers criteria for hitting the target you'll have to stand on the sidelines.
For example: I shoot long distance rifle competition from time to time.
Before the meet the shooters have to qualify. Targets are set at 500yrds.
The shooter has to be able to hit the designated target with all 5 shots.
The competition is from 600yrds to 1000yrds, qualification is 500yrds.
That's just for that particular competition in my area. Qualification criteria will differ depending on event & organizer.
I wish I could be more help.
