    Can anyone spot what is wrong here? The '31' is my competitor number. The red is my score.
    BTW, I won a 100 yard bench rest match at a big shoot using an offhand rifle against the genuine heavy bench guns.

    56 out of 50? Maybe 46 out 50 on a rescore?

    Besides the obvious, looks like you started building pressures for #4&5, which caused you to shoot high.
    Quick wipe after 3rd and you’da shot a “60”. Lol

    Rifleman, there are three kinds of people in the world; those who can do math, and those who can't.

    Depends on how you score, the lower right hit broke the line of the X .
    some might call that a 20, which would give you a score of 56

    Well, if he was to set that target up sidewise like shootin' a playing card yeah, with five tries he just might!

    This was in Arkansas, you know where the favorite password is 2-10-11 eyes finger toes. Maybe the scorer counted on hey foot instead of straw foot and got confused
    ( I lived over half my life in Arkansas for those that think I was pickin’ on them I’m an Arky by adoption)

    I still think it's a 100 point target.

    Yep. That target adds up to one. One dead deer.

    Having worked in the scoring part of a large match, I can tell you, after scoring 500+ targets, yer eyes go crossed and yer cipherin gets off kilter

    I wish he had numbered the shots. It's possible that the 10 o'clock shot in the 10 ring is a double.

    I think the fouling built up if he wasn't wiping and the increased pressure lifted the impact. One of Dutch's target analysis discussions.

    I've been on the other end of that. I almost got robbed of a win once because someone glossed over my target. When the results of the match were called the winner had less points than I did. I didn't raise a stink, but my club mates did. I walked away the win and a nice powder horn.
    Actually the guy scoring the target did just fine, it was the guy calculating the winners who needed glasses.
