Classification

Let's say a beginner gets classified as marksman. He's shot his first 3600 shots and got classified. How many matches or shots does a competitor need to move up in classification? To move up the next step. Another 3600? Or just one 2700 that's scored high enough to be in the next class?

19.17 Reclassification

(b)
A competitor will be considered for reclassification upward when scores for not less than 360 shots, fired subsequent to the tournament date at which he earned his current classification” have been recorded as prescribed, except that such consideration will not include tournament or league scores until after all scores for the tournament or league competition concerned have been recorded. If the average scores so justifies, he will be reclassified upward accordingly.

Tim, Do you have exactly 360 rounds fired? If you have fired more then 360 (90 more) then it is possible that another 2700 match will advance you. None of the original 360 rounds fired to get your first card can be counted towards you next card. They use a rolling average based on the last 360 rounds you fired provided that none of those shots were used to establish your existing classification. If you only have a couple of 1800's behind you then Yes, you have to fire another 360 shots.

Len

I need to add to the above that they don't separate exactly at 360 shots. If you are shooting 1800's then they are. If you are shooting 2700's then they used all of the 540 shots to determine your classification and would fall under the category of having been used to establish your current classification.

I've only shot one 900. It was the last local match of 2015. It was a 22 stage only out a 2700. I did not fire the CF or 45. I won it by two points. I'm working with my 45 getting it ready and hopefully once this years season starts I can get classified. I'm curious - can I get classified and reclassified in the same year?

If your good. Technically you could get your Marksman card and move up 4 more times in a year. But, if your that good you would probably be skipping a couple. Very Happy

With the 41 I'm shooting high 860's with an occasional 870/871. This is just practice. The 45 scores however are the pits!

Recoil, thou art a heartless demon!  But just load down and train which is a bit different than practice actually.

You won't be doing yourself any favors if you get your Master card shooting .22 only. They won't lower your classification when you start shooting the CF and .45 matches. They will lower it if you request it in writing and have fired a minimum of 1890 (7-2700's) rounds after getting a classification you think is to high. But it isn't automatic.

Don't come up too fast..... its way for fun to sandbag in the lower classifications and be contested about your current classification.... ask me how I know  lol!

Hi Chris, I think I shot with you that match. I don't think you were sandbagging. You just had a learning curve peak/spike. Smile Maybe we can do it again this year. That range is closed now but maybe Paul Bunyan?

well .......  I shot all previous matches with ball ammo then I got a hold of some AA 185jhp.... much better scores. 

Paul Bunyan range is right next to my brothers so it is way doable .
