This is precision shooting with 22 LR rifles from the shooting bench.
The course of fire consists of four target cards.
- There are 25 targets per card – one shot per target.
- Competitors are given 20 minutes to shoot each target card.
- There will be a preparation period before the official match begins which may be used for warm-up and sight-in on separate sighter targets (provided by the match director). There are three sighter targets at the top of each target card which may be used during the match, along with the separate sighter targets.
- Shooting is conducted at 50 yards.
- Any rest may be used to shoot from the bench, so long as any such rest prevents the barreled action from being affixed to the bench in an immovable manner, and the rest itself is not attached to the bench.
Scoring is the opposite of most competitions. Scoring is based on the worst edge scoring method. A bullet hole that breaks the outside edge of a line is given the lower value. If in doubt, review the Scoring Example on the upper left corner of the target.
Detailed Scoring Description
Any shot entirely within the outer edge of the center ring = 100 points.
Any shot in the area between the outer edge of the inner ring and the outer edge of the second ring = 50 points.
Any shot with the hole’s outer edge in the area between the outer edge of the second ring, and until the hole’s inner edge leaves the outer edge of the second ring = 25 points.
Any shot in the area between the outer edge of the second ring and until the hole’s inner edge leaves the inner edge of the outmost ring = 25 points.
