Coming in sec­ond was Philip Mur­ray with a score of 16 and for third, both Ja­son Read and Chris Le­froy shot scores of 14.

Read ul­ti­mately took third place, rel­e­gat­ing Le­froy to fourth place af­ter a count­back on tur­keys.

New­comer Cor­nelius Mitch­ley took fifth place with a score of 12.

The “big guns” sil­hou­ette ri­fle class, shoot­ing all the way to 500m, was go­ing to be more chal­leng­ing as the wind started to blow, with gusts of up to 20km/h.
