    Hi Joe, The World Down the Line champs are shot under 'Points Score' conditions used throughout the Commonwealth. 2 shells in the gun, 1st barrel hits score 3 points, 2nd barrel hits score 2 points and a loss is zero. I can't recall for sure, but it is about 250 targets shot over 2.5 days, all shooting is off 15meters, 5 targets per lane. Best I can do for you...sorry. Cheers-Graham.

    Thanks for explaining that point system. I did not know that. Is it a wobble or "continental" type machine with vertical and horizontal movement?

    hey guys,
    where are you guys staying? i see the website has a few B&Bs but it looks like most are fully booked...

    also what about ammo? does anyone know where to get it, if its available at the shooting grounds?

    Is there an update on this EVENT?

    Is DTL shot on a continental or wobble trap?

    Dynapro, DTL is basically a two shot ATA event, no wobble or continental type target. My old rule book says 50 to 55 yd target, with angle of 22 degree each side of center line. AJ.
