Flag distance for 90 metre event for Small Bore & Air Rifle

Range shoots at 20, 50 and 90 metres via small bore & air rifle association.

What is the flag placement for 90 metres?

For 50 metres I have seen 10 and 30 metres but I may not be looking at the correct rule book.

Thanks
Kevin

Wind flags.

Kevin as far as I know there are no rules for wind flag placement for TRA Style Benchrest at 90 metres. ISSF rules have absolutely no mention of benchrest, nor were they ever meant for benchrest. Because of this TRA compiled their own "Benchrest Style Rules" but do not include flag spacing. These rules are used in conjunction with ISSF rules. Rule 6.4 sets out spacing for 50 m at 10 and 30m but does not include 90m as it is not an ISSF event.
My suggestion is to space flags at 10, 30 and 70m. However someone else may know more than me. Good luck with it.

Correct Knighty I looked too...

I would add one at 50m though Keith so 10 30 50 70

Do some of your benchrest

Do some of your benchrest events have limitations on flag placement and amount of flags used?

Flag rules

TRA Style Benchrest closely follows ISSF rules so flags are set to regulations by those holding the shoot. No other flags allowed. Also once a scoring shot is made no going back to sighters.
Other comps here set your own flags etc... at start of the shoot and usually no moving them until end of shoot. If there is a bench rotation that can mean quite a few flags.

my way

Around here, and Internationally we don't have yet a limitation number of flags.
That said I tend to lay a set of 6 flags for 50m, starting very close and then increasing the distance between them. The idea behind is the closer the wind to the muzzle the bigger the effect, so better to have a good understanding closer than further apart.
I also lay the flags according to range obstacles.
Normally mine are at 5, 9, 14, 20, 30 and 45m
Depending of the 1st obstacle, the 1st flag could be closer or further, all the others follow the previous pattern.

So for 90m is a matter of doing the maths

Six flags

Pedro how do you watch all six flags at the same time?

I have 5 flags and 2 probes for 50m shooting.

Its not about watchimg them all, its about working out which ones are the most important and watching them.
If you don't shoot the range every weekend you need them all and time watching to work it out.

How to

Like Brett said, it's a kind of balance between them.
Every range, every day, will show up with 2~3 more important flags... being the hardest part discover which ones...

When you spotted the two prevalent wind conditions, and pick those 2~3 important flags, you got your tools to prepare each shot. The remaining flags give you a conditions flavour. Iif they correspond all is ok, if they show changes, be aware, wait, let the important ones take party, or not...

Also having more flags, as I don't use probes, I can more easily understand wind speed, and, even more important, having a better picture of wind conditions all over the range.

Thanks
