Rifle MB - How about this "interpretation" of the rules?

As I read the reqs,
(l) Using a .22 caliber rimfire rifle and shooting from a bench rest
(supported) position at 50 feet, fire five groups (three shots per group) that
can be covered by a quarter. Adjust sights to center the group on the target and
fire five groups (five shots per group). According to the target used, each shot
in the group must meet the following minimum score:
(1) A-32 targets - 9
(2) A-17 or TQ-1 targets - 8,
(3) A-36 targets - 6.
a scout must get three shots in a quarter anywhere on the target (to show
consistency) and then he learns to sight in to the bull and then needs to make 5
within the appropriate ring of the target as stated in the MB book.
So how about the rangemaster which gives 20 rounds to a scout to shoot at a
single bull and if at least 5 meet the score it counts! Then the scout just has
to do it four more times to meet the requirement. The book doesn't say how many
rounds the scout STARTS with, just how many have to hit the target, at least
according to the rangemaster! I damn near choked on this when I heard it, but at
least it is better than using the large handgun targets with 6 inch bulls which
they did a few years ago. The lack of specific mention should imply that it is 5
out of 5, not 5 out of unlimited!
