Skeet & ISSF Skeet

Skeet divides into two disciplines - ISSF SKEET and an Australian version of AMERICAN SKEET and SKEET DOUBLES.

Detailed rules of all disciplines are laid out in the ACTA Rules Book, available at the club office.

Skeet

A round of skeet consists of 25 targets shot on a semi-circular layout with two trap houses, the left being the high house, the right the low house.

There are 8 shooting stations.  One shot only may be fired at each target. Squads consist of 5 shooters, each takes his turn to shoot from a position known as a pad.  These are numbered from 1 to 8.

From each of these stations a single target is released from each house on the call of "pull".  The shooter may have his gun on or off his shoulder as he chooses.

After the competitor has shot his two single targets from stations 1,2, 6 and 7, he remains on the pad and shoots a "double", ie two targets are released simultaneously, one from each house, one shot is fired at each target.

If at any time during a round a competitor misses a target he then reloads one cartridge and repeats the first target that he has missed; however, if he gets to station 8 and has broken all of the 24 previous targets, he then repeats his last target to complete the 25 target round.

 


 

ISSF Skeet

The above comments also apply to this discipline.  The gun must be in the classic ISSF down position when the target is called and there can be up to a three second delay before the target is released.

A 24 gram loads must be used for all ISSF shooting.

Skeet Doubles

This is shot with a simultaneous pair thrown from each station except No. 8.

Skeet & ISSF Skeet

A round of skeet consists of 25 targets shot on a semi-circular layout with two trap houses using 8 shooting stations.

Trap & Down the Line

Trap and DTL targets are released from an oscillating trap so the target is released unpredictably within a defined arc.

Sporting Clays

Sporting clay targets are thrown from numerous traps over a large area with each club and competition vastly different.

Five Stand

Five Stand targets are thrown from several traps like Sporting Clays but the traps are set out over a smaller area.

Melbourne Gun Club

There are no strangers in clay target shooting, just friends we have not yet met.
