Per Steel Challenge Rules:
Steel Challenge scoring is simple: your time is your score. There are five targets, commonly referred to as plates. Four are primary plates, and the fifth is designated as the stop plate. Each of the primary targets must be hit at least once during each string of fire, followed by the stop plate, which must be hit last to stop the time. Competitors may fire as many rounds as they deem necessary for each string of fire. The best four out of five strings will be counted as the total score for each stage, except for Outer Limits, which will be the best three out of four runs. (Temple Gun Club will be shooting and scoring the best of 3 out of 5 runs.)
Total score for all stages will determine the order of finish for final standings.
The maximum time allowed for each individual string is 30 seconds. (We will allow the shooter to finish the run but a maximum time of 30 seconds awarded.
- All scoring for an individual string of fire ceases when the stop plate is hit.
- All misses (primary targets left un-hit once the stop plate has been struck) will be scored with a three-second penalty each.
- When a Range Officer scores a miss, it is the shooter’s responsibility to appeal the decision at the end of that particular string of fire. The Range Officer will then go downrange and check the target. If the bullet leaves a clear mark on the plate, even if only on the edge, it will be scored as a hit. Once the next string of fire begins, there will be NO further opportunity to appeal the call. The Range Officer’s ruling as to a hit or miss shall be final.
Three (3) second procedural penalties will be given for:
• Creeping (moving the hands toward the gun), movement, or jumping before the start signal
• Foot faults – A foot fault will be described as when shots are fired while any part of the body (foot) is touching the ground outside of the shooting boxes. Clarification: Foot pressure on the raised shooting box will not be penalized.
• Shooting the wrong targets from the designated boxes
• Incorrect or non-movement when movement is required.
Center fire handguns must be the minimum caliber of 9mm/.38 special and a maximum of 45 ACP. No magnum loads, steel core, armor piercing, tracer or incendiary rounds will be allowed. Center fire firearms shall be suitable for holster use. Rimfire shall be .22 Long Rifle caliber only.
Holsters shall be mounted in the general vicinity of the waist and must retain the gun. IDPA categories must abide by the IDPA criteria, to include IDPA approved holsters and holster position. Rimfire competition does not involve the use of a holster. Rimfire competitors will start from low ready.
There will be no multiple-projectile or magnum loads allowed. All rounds must travel a minimum of 750 FPS. Competitors whose ammunition does not make minimum velocity will be disqualified from the match(es) where the sub-standard ammunition was used. In the rimfire event, .22 Long Rifle ammunition must be used (no powderless cases allowed).
