Firing Starts: Your start time should be a realistic one for you and the competitors. It should be rigidly adhered to. If you expect out-of-towners who will be lodging nearby, consider the opening hours of local restaurants where they can have breakfast. Also consider the preparation work your range crew must do to get ready. If your tournament is High Power Rifle and competitors will be acting as target pullers, you will need to establish two times - one for ”Competitors to Report” and a later one for “Firing Starts.” Following is a list of average relay times to assist you in your planning. To decide how many matches can be scheduled (or how many entries can be accepted, consider these average relay times. These times take into consideration the time for competitors to get one the line, time for actual firing, time to score (when done at the targets), and time to change targets. Experienced range crews will be able to save time on these estimates. Average range times (not shooting times) are listed below:
