50 Metre Rifle Prone
50 metre rifle prone is an International Shooting Sport Federation event consisting of 60 shots from the prone position with a .22 Long Rifle (5.6 mm) caliber rifle. The time limit is 75 minutes for the entire match, including sighting shots, or 90 minutes if there is a need to compensate for slow scoring systems. In the 2013 ISSF rules the 60-shot prone match consists of 15-minute preparation and sighting time, followed by the match - 60 shots in 50 minutes for electronic scoring, and 60 shots in 60 minutes for paper targets.[1] The sport is based on the traditional "English Match" that also consisted of 60 shots in the prone position with a .22 rifle, but had varying distances between 45.7 metres (50.0 yd) and 100 metres (110 yd). ( Before 2017, the men's event was included in the Olympic program but from 2020 olympics this event has been deleted to promote equal gender in olympic shooting sports and some other mix doubles are introduced for men and women )
