All reloads must be from pouches, pockets, bandoleers, etc worn by the shooter.

7. Estimated Finish Time: 1700

That’s about the time we figure all shooting should be finished. The actual time will depend on the number of shooters. If you can, stick around to help put away targets and police the range.

Actual start and finish times, match rules, and conduct of the individual stages are subject to change at the match director’s discretion.
