The interval between the strings will not be announced and will vary from string to string.

Stage 5 – Barricade. Three 5-shot strings all fired on one 5-bull 50 yard small bore target at 200 yards.  This stage simulates the use of readily available existing support in the field to exploit a fleeting target opportunity.  All equipment including spare rounds and magazines must be carried by the shooter, and bipod and shooting sticks must start undeployed.  Bolts will remain open until in position.  Maximum of 3 hits per bull, 10 points per hit.
