You might think about setting  the description like most 900 matches are shot.  That is; based on the standard progress of matches - Slow Fire, National Match Course, Time Fire and Rapid Fire matches.  Helps with understanding the alibi rules, awards for matches, etc.  These are the courses of fire and matches generally used and recognized for classifications; however, each match program can specify the matches and courses of fire they wish to use.  Most 2700 Tournaments use this 900 Aggregate Match format 3 times (for each gun .22, CF and .45).  The rule book will give the specific matches that are recognized for classification purposes. 

900 Aggregate Match =  

Slow Fire Match - 2 strings of Slow Fire, 10 shots in 10 minutes.

National Match Course - 1 string of Slow Fire, 10 shots in 10 minutes; 2 strings of Timed fire, 5 shots in 20 seconds; and 2 strings of 5 shots Rapid Fire, 5 shots in 10 seconds.

Timed Fire Match - 4 strings of Timed Fire, 5 shots in 20 seconds.

Rapid Fire Match - 4 strings of Rapid Fire, 5 shots in 10 seconds.

Targets generally scored after 10 shots. (Typically standard for 50 and 25 yard matches, Reduced yardage matches may be scored differently see the the Tournament Program.)

Just to throw a wrench into the mess, some places (25 yard short course and 50 foot indoor) shoot three National Match Courses, in that order, for the total of 90 shots / 900 points. Final score and number of targets and types are the same, just shot in a "different" order. Personally, I don't like it that way.  I prefer - slow X 2 - NMC - timed X 2 - rapid X 2.

I want to be a High Master. It looks like they get 20 seconds to shoot a rapid fire string Shocked . Or maybe it just feels like that when you get good enough. On the original OP you actually have more time then 4 sec and 2 sec per shot. If, you get that first shot off right away.

Just not good at proofreading.  But I love "cut and paste".

According to my understanding, Registered matches need not be shot in any particular order in regard to NMC, rapid, timed or slow fire.

I shot in more than one registered Reverse 2700 which starts with rapid fire .45.  My home club holds one per outdoor season.

I totally agree most matches follow format you listed initially.

The NRA rules allow for great latitude in the individual courses of fire, etc.; however there are only specific ones that can be shot for national records.  Therefore it is important to read the Tournament Program.  The general outline that I posted is used for Outdoor 2700's and the NRA National Match, and all the Regional in our area.  The NRA Preliminary Match is fired as 3 individual National Match Courses with each gun.
