Rifleshooter.com’s 50-25-7 Practical Carbine Standard
Here is our standard carbine evaluation course, suggested target is an AT-99.
The AT-99 is a modified QIT-99, it is an excellent target for irons and optics. The counter-shaded background provides a clear view of the target area when using irons sights at 200+ yards and the smaller aiming boxes provide points of reference for more precise shots. I buy them from letargets.com
For scoring purposes, the small box is worth 6 pts, center box 5, inside solid line 3, and dotted line 1. All times are par, no alibis. Starting position is weapon condition one: safety on, muzzle below belt, shooter looking at target. I normally have shooters load five magazines with ten rounds each.
Stage 1, 50-yards: Load a magazine with ten rounds. Fire 5 standing, 5 kneeling, reload, fire 10 prone. 60 seconds.
Stage 2, 50-yards: All shooting is done from behind a 2′ wide barricade. Load a magazine with ten rounds. Fire 5 kneeling barricade, 5 standing barricade; reload, fire 5 standing support shoulder barricade, 5 kneeling support shoulder barricade. 60 seconds.
Stage 3, 7-yards: Load a magazine with ten rounds. Fire 2 rounds standing. Repeat 5 times for a total of ten rounds. 3 seconds each exposure.
Optional 7-yard line:
Stage 3: Load a magazine with ten rounds. Fire 5 rounds. 4 second par.
Stage 4: Fire 1 round at 2.5″ dot in 2 seconds, repeat 5 times.
