CrashDodson Posted August 26, 2015 Share Posted August 26, 2015 (edited) I recently took the SO prequalification test and ran into a question I am confused about. Can someone explain the difference in Oval and keyhole hits? 4.8. Bullet Holes4.8.1. Oval or elongated bullet holes made in a target that exceed two bullet diameters do not count for score. This situation normally occurs for moving targets fired upon at extreme angles, or targets where the shooter is moving.4.8.2. The elongated bullet hole rule does not include keyhole bullet holes (a keyhole bullet hole is created by a bullet which tumbles out of the firearm barrel and appears to have gone through the target sideways,) which count for score if they were made without interference from another object. Oval holes do not count, they occur on shots from extreme angles or where shooter is moving. Keyhole is created when it goes through the target sideways (which does count). If the bullet was tumbling out of the firearm and impacts the target at an angle, not exactly flat, wouldn't that create a oval hole? Were if the bullet hit the target a micro second later it would be a keyhole? Edited August 26, 2015 by CrashDodson Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
