SCORING OF SHOTS ON TARGETS
7. SCORING OF TARGETS
7.1 The target is defined as the entire A4 card or A4 paper on which the scoring rings are printed but shall not include the backing against which the A4 target is pasted.
7.2 The X-ring on all targets = 10 points
7.3 CLEAN / PURE-SHOT (indicated as Pure-shot on Target): A shot, of which the hole does not cut any line of a scoring ring and is clearly inside the scoring ring (examples on Target below). A leaded edge shot of which the leaded edge just touches the line, but the hole is inside of the scoring ring, is scored according to the number of the scoring ring it is shot into (see example Target below).
7.4 CUT-SHOT: A shot of which the hole clearly cuts or crosses the line of a scoring ring is calculated as the higher score number. A shot of which only 1% crosses the line of a scoring ring, and of which 99% of the shot is inside the scoring ring, is not a Pure-shot and is indicated as a cut shot and counts the higher number (see example Target below).
7.5 In case of key-holed, tipped shots, or skid shots, the higher value is awarded as per the explanation of cut-shot above - even though the hole might be elongated to the bullet's length rather than being a circle of the bullet's diameter.
7.6 When a bullet enters a target from the back of the target, it will be scored as a miss – thus count zero.
7.7 Hits on the outside of all the scoring rings are scored as misses – thus count zero.
