Q1. Firstly what does kneeling/sitting supported mean?
A1. You can use whatever type of rest or support you wish as long as you are carrying it with your rifle and all equipment 3m behind the firing line and its not touching the ground at the start of the Stage 4. That means an extra long bipod, or shooting sticks, tripod, back pack or what ever but you only have 4 mins to move into position, set up and complete the stage when the targets appear.
Q2. How many rounds can I fire in Stage 4?
A2. Its a maximum of ten shots to count there are 15 circles on the Fig 27, only a one hit per circle will be scored up to a maximum of 10, excess hits will not be scored nor penalised.
Lastly I have had one chap drop out so if you want in or know someone who does get in contact ASAP.
Well it went well today, lots learnt by quite a few competitors in a tricky, for some, wind flipping between 3 to 7 mph. The supported stage at 300 saw various Heath Robinson rests, poles, tripods, long legged bipods, backpacks and a B&D Workmate.
