What is a 10.9 Score — Isn’t a 10 the Highest Value?

Creedmoor sports weekend sale 10.9 free shipping

Under ISSF rules, “The final score is made of decimal points, with the maximum score per shot being 10.9.” You get extra value, above 10 points, by placing your shot in the very center of the ten ring, as shown in red in the photo above. The maximum score is a 10.9.

Bill Lee, former U.S. Olympic Shooting Team Member, explains the 10.9 score in a Quaro Post:

A 10.9 would be a DEAD-CENTER shot.

ALL ISSF events that previously uses paper bullseye targets with numerical scoring rings have switched to electronic targets since the conclusion of the 1988 Olympics. From this point forward decimal points scoring was introduced, initially for only the finals for both rifle and pistol. Still, in recent years all rifle events’ in both preliminary/qualifying AND the FINAL stage of the match are entirely scored in decimal points. In contrast, the pistol events, only the finals are scored down to decimals.

Why? To break ties, and see who CONSISTENTLY comes close to dead center hit with every shot, of course! They don’t call it the Olympics for nothing.

A 10.5 is a shot that “nicks” the lines on the inner 10-ring (It’s the smallest circle on ALL ISSF bullseye rifle and pistol targets). — Bill Lee

If a shot just slightly cuts the outside of the 10-ring (2nd smallest circle), it’s a 10.0.
