    How does the course of fire work for the full bore?

    For the pairs it was 10 shot strings @ 300, 500 & 600, then 15 shot strings @ 900 & 1000.

    For the individual, looks like they did 7 shot strings for the shorts yesterday. Another round of 3,5 & 6 and then single round of 900 and 1000 on the 3rd day of individuals.

    Not sure if there is a set format for a "queens" competition, @zimmer might know.

    There are time limits for 7, 10 and 15 shot strings. TR gets a bit more time than F/TR and F-open. With open the guys are using calibers and velocity to try to beat the wind, so they tend to shoot much faster.

    15 shot string is significantly more difficult than 10. Barrel heats up and you get velocity issues, mirage off the barrel, and the main issue is just eyes getting tired and having to concentrate for longer. Obviously you also have to contend with a larger weather window, so that makes it harder as well.

    It's a medal count, there's nothing personal about it.

    I've not paid any attention to the SA contingent so have no idea who the potential medal candidates are outside rugby and swimming. What / who are the remaining NZ ones? Has Valerie Adams done her thing yet?

    No idea mate, i'm not really following it, just highlights on the news. I dont think Val has been or we would have another gold for the ladies. So far just lawn bowls and swimming.

    Much the same here, Commonwealth Games isn't something that I find particularly exciting, generally speaking.
