CONDUCT OF: Long Range Tactical 3 Gun Match

The shooter MUST declare how the ammo will be dispersed before firing starts. I.E. 6 rounds for target group A, 12 rounds for target group B, and 7 rounds for target group C. Shooters must fire at least 1 round at each target in the target group.
A 1 point FTN penalty will be accessed for each target not hit. Each shooter will have a scorer. It will be the shooters responsibility to ensure the spotter knows what target you are shooting at and when you are shooting. You may start at the nearest target in any target group with the proper rifle.
- Targets in target group A will be worth 1 thru 5 points.
- Targets in group B will be worth 4 thru 8 points.
- Targets in group C will be worth 6 thru 10 points.
All targets must be engaged with at least 1 round. A 2 point FTN will be accessed for any target not hit.
Any allotted rounds the shooter has left after HITTING ALL targets will be given points equal to the lowest score in their ammo group. I.E. If you have 2 AR rounds left after hitting all the targets in that group you will receive 1 point each for the remaining rounds.
Also, if you have rounds left after hitting all the targets in that group you may use them on any targets not hit in a higher group. I.E. If you allotted 7 rounds to shoot in the 308 class rifle at targets in group B but you hit all the targets with 5 rounds, you fire your remaining 2 rounds at targets in group C IF you ran out of mag class ammo before engaging all 5 targets.
