This Sat I participated in another field shoot. All targets at unknown distances. No ranging permitted. All events aare timed, 5 shots per target. The gong lanes have 5 gongs which has to be shot in sequence, 1 round per gong.
The animals have negative points for areas considered wounding the animal. So a headshot being 1 inch low can hit the snout and give a minus15 score.
There were approx 150 shooters. I ended up 3rd in the seniors division with 525/900. The highest being 585.
Overall I came 30th, with the highest score 780/900.
Distances from 35m to 320m. The wind pushed my 308 155gr up to 8 inches on some targets.
There were 6 disciplines:
Warthog standing  no support 45 secs My estimate 35 m
Impala standing with thin dowel as support 45 sec my est 120 m
Gongs field 3 Lying down front rest only. 120 secs
Gong 1 (all my est) 200  2...320m   3....260m  4...150m  5....220m
Then the blesbuck sitting front rest only 120 sec my estimate 240m with a strong crosswind. 120 secs
Then springbuck standing front rest only 120 m 90 secs
Lastly another gong field:
 Standing using a straw bale only 120 secs
1...250m   2...200m    3....300m  4... 210 5....150m
