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

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

:p Is it even possible to achieve over 50 with five shots?
Well, if he was to set that target up sidewise like shootin' a playing card yeah, with five tries he just might!

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.
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)

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.
