<< My question is: when scoring the round of five targets with groups of five
shots each, it says each shot in the group must meet the minimum score, but
that for one of the five targets or all five targets? >>
If you have five bulls per target (five black targets on one sheet), then they
fire one shot at each bull and that shot has to meet the minimum score - on
each of the 5 bulls.
You can take my word for this. I received my training and NRA certification
to run field sports ranges for BSA camps and merit badges at a BSA Camp School
in 1991, and this was what we were told.
Just for your information - a "rimfire" cartridge is a bullet that lacks the
individual "primer" on the back. The "primer" is "built-in" to the casing
itself. The BSA requires these because a primer cartridge can be re-loaded,
but rimfires cannot. Rimfire cartridges must be bought from a store - and
this eliminates liability from individuals, leaders, and/or chartered
organizations in the event of an accident.
