2018 Metric Target Changes
USPSA Headquarters
Jan 05, 2018

From the minutes of the September 19, 2017 USPSA Board of Directors meeting:

The Board expressed unanimous support to approve a new target which extends the C-zone
into the upper panel, eliminating the B-zone and corresponding perforation in the
Metric Target, and will be moving forward with rule change process over the next few
months authorizing DNROI to proceed with the technical drawing to support the new
target design. The target scoring zones will be A, C, D, to be consistent with the Classic
Target. The existing metric target will remain in use indefinitely, allowing affiliates and
matches to use exhaust supplies without concern.

Ruling on B zone removal, Metric Targets  Effective January 4, 2018, by board consent.

Appendix B3, 9.1.4

Per the USPSA Board of Directors, the B zone on metric targets will be phased out over an indefinite period of time.  As vendors change target dies, the B zone letter designation and B line (perforation separating the current “B” zone” from the “C” zone) may be removed.  There is no need for a scoring system change at this time.  Rule 9.1.4 already allows B and C zone hits to be scored identically, therefore when scoring targets with a B zone, the B zone hits may still be called out and recorded as B hits, or may simply be scored as C zone hits.  Since the scoring zones count for the same amount of points, (4 for major hits and 3 for minor hits), scoring targets using Hit Factor scoring on targets without the B zone will not be affected by this change.

Note: The C letter designation is NOT required in the upper C zone, as it is contiguous with the rest of the C zone.
