4.6 – Bullet Holes

4.6.1  Oval or elongated bullet holes made in a target that exceed two bullet diameters do not count for score. This situation normally occurs for moving targets fired upon at extreme angles or targets where the shooter is moving.

4.6.2  The elongated bullet hole rule does not include keyhole bullet holes (a keyhole bullet hole is created by a bullet which tumbles out of the firearm barrel and appears to have gone through the target sideways,) which count for score if they were made without interference from another object.

4.6.3  Odd shaped holes made by bullets ricocheting off the bay floor, props, steel, etc., are not scored. Only holes made by whole bullets, not fragments, are scored.

4.6.4  Only bullet holes directly entering the front of the target will be scored.
