I had a lot of fun even though I didn't have my bolt gun together and had to compete with my squirrel rifle! Since there are some shooters not familiar with how scoring works, here's a primer. Anyone feel free to clarify or add information and if anyone doesn't understand just ask, it took me a couple matches to get the hang of it.M1GarandFan said:Agreed. I showed a few people how to fill out the scorecards the same way we do the highpower scorecards.SubGunFan said:]6. I think at the next match someone should show the shooters how to score and record the targets.]

I will try and post the few pics I got tomorrow since I will have to do it from my laptop and the battery on it is dead at the moment.

Scoring & Reporting of Scores, shamelessly copied from http://fieldandfelt.com/emailshootingleagues/i/new_page_6.htm

Targets should be marked with the stage they are being used for so that when you report your scores the proper number will go in the proper category.

Scoring is pretty easy as each shot will be scored the value of the ring it lands inside of. If it breaks (touches) the line of the next higher ring it will be given that value. A simple way to check to see if the hole actually touches the line is to insert the bullet of an unfired cartridge into the hole and if it touches the line you get the higher score, if not you get the lower one.

Shots hitting, or within, the "X" ring will be scored as "10".

Shooters should also count the total number of "X"s on all of their targets because these will be used as tie breakers should two or more shooters end the league with the same score.

Now to record the score. First count the number of holes in the target! If there are more hits either someone crossfired or the shooter fired too many rounds. Studying the adjacent targets will determine what happened. If someone crossfired the lowest score is dropped. If the shooter fired too many rounds, the highest score is dropped. Now that that's sorted out we'll use my best string for an example cause I'm not posting my worst!

I have ten holes so that's easy. There are three X's, one 10, three 9's, two 7's, and one 6.

Here's how the score card would be filled out, it's the second up from the bottom for this string.

X X X 10 9 9 9 7 7 6 = 87 3-x

Now lets do the math. X's count as 10's, they are used to break ties. Let's say someone else shot an 87 4-x. Even though our points total is the same, the competitor with 4-x's is ranked ahead of me with my 3-x's. Now simply add all the numbers together and enter the total in the space provided.... unless you are like me. I use the subtraction method because it is easier on my feeble mind. Start with a perfect score of 100 and subtract 0 for 10's and x's, 1 for each 9, two for each 8, etc. Looking at my score I start with 100 and subtract 0 for the 10's and x's, 3 points for the three 9's (1x3), 6 points for the two 7's (2x3), and 4 points for the lone six. This adds to 3+6+4=13, and 100-13= 87.

Always remember the golden rule: Score unto others as ye would have them score unto you!
