Scoring:  Scoring will be done by a scoring team. If a bullet touches a line the shooter will receive the higher score. If there is doubt as to the score a “plug” will be used. If more than one shot appears on a target bull, the shooter will receive the lower score. Shots outside the scoring area will be counted as a miss (0). A perfect score would be 250-25x. If a shooter fires on another shooters target and admits his or her mistake to the match director, shooter will be given the shot minus one point. If another fires on your target, notify the match director at once so you won’t be penalized.


Benches: 20 shooters per relay. If there are more than 20 shooters a second relay will be shot.

Wind Flags:  Wind flags can be used buy must be set up prior to the relay firing time. If a flag is in shooters line of sight notify match director BEFORE  the commence fire command is given.
