Electronic Target Scoring Rules

1. Verifier Duties.  During competitions with E-targets, competitors on a prior or upcoming relay are assigned as verifiers.   Duties of Verifiers include:

A. Confirming that competitors fire at their targets and that their targets score those shots.

B. Confirming that competitors fire the correct number of shots at their targets during slow and rapid-fire series.

C. Immediately notifying the RO regarding any questions, complaints or irregularities on the verifier’s target.

D. Scores recorded by verifiers are unofficial until the competitor’s monitors and associated shot data are cleared, then the verifier’s recorded scores become the official scores.

2. Protested Shot Value:   Since backing cards are not used, score value protests cannot be accepted unless the target identifies the shot with a “*” in the shot column, indicating something non-standard, such as extreme shot angle, abnormal velocity, loss of a sensor, etc.  In this case a protested shot value may be changed or refired at the Range Officer’s discretion.

3. Missing Shot, Slow Fire:

A.  Check for extra shots on adjacent targets. If the competitor agrees that the crossfire is his, score the shot as a miss.

B.  If the competitor disagrees that he fired crossfire, or if there is no indication of a crossfired shot on adjacent targets, direct the competitor to fire his next record shot. If that shot registers on the monitor, direct the competitor to continue firing to complete the required number of shots in the series.

C.  If the competitor fires his/her next record shot and that shot does not register on the monitor, move the competitor to a spare target and direct the competitor to continue firing to complete the required number of shots in the series.

4. Missing Shot, Rapid-Fire (Insufficient Hits):

A. Confirm the complaint with the competitor and verifier.

B. If the verifier confirms that the competitor did not fire all 10 shots (saved rounds), count the scored hits.

C. If the competitor fired all 10 shots and there are nine or fewer shots indicated, check for excessive hits on adjacent targets. If there are excessive hits equal to the number of missing shots, score the missing shot(s) as a miss(es).

D. If the competitor fired all 10 shots and there are nine or fewer shots indicated, and there are no excessive hits on adjacent targets, score the missing shot as equal to the value of the lowest scoring shot in that series, or allow refire of the string.

5. Unclaimed or Extra Shot, Slow Fire:

 A. If an unclaimed or extra shot appears on the monitor, the competitor may complain:

a) when he/she discovers the extra shot, or:

b) when the competitor has one shot to fire and the monitor indicates that all shots in that series have already been fired, or;

  c) when after firing the last shot, the competitor observes that the monitor indicates an extra shot has been fired.

B.  If the unclaimed shot appears before the completion of the series, check for missing shots on adjacent targets. If there is a missing shot on an adjacent target, direct the competitor to continue firing and disregard the crossfire.

C. If the extra shot cannot be identified before the end of the series, nullify the lowest value shot as the crossfire shot and count the remaining 10 or 20 shots as the competitor’s score.

D. If a target receives two or more unclaimed extra shots in a slow-fire series and crossfires cannot be identified, apply Rule 6.B (11 or 12 shots) or 6.C (13 or more shots).

E. If there is an unclaimed extra shot, it is also possible (very rare) that the extra shot (usually indicated as a frame hit or miss) was caused by a piece of debris from an off-target miss or frame hit on an adjacent target (ricochet hit). If a ricochet hit is identified, nullify the unclaimed extra shot and count the 10 or 20 record shots fired by the competitor.

6. Extra Shot(s), Rapid-Fire (Excessive Hits):

A. Confirm the complaint with the competitor and verifier.

B. If 11 or 12 hits are indicated in a rapid-fire series and the crossfire shot cannot be identified, nullify the lowest value hit/hits and count the remaining ten (10) shots as the competitor’s score (high 10).

C.  If 13 or more hits are indicated in a rapid-fire series and the crossfire shots cannot be identified, determine the total score for the 10 lowest value hits and give the competitor the option of:

a) accepting that score, or;

 b) refiring the series as a range alibi.

7. Bullet Diameter:  Calibers of individual competitor’s rifles are not assigned.  All targets score all shots as .308 caliber.

8. Failure of One or More Targets:   In the event of a target failure or malfunction, the competitor must be moved to a spare (hospital) target and allowed to refire the series in which the complaint occurred as a range alibi.
