Competitors fire 60 shots over the 50 metre range using a .22 target rimfire rifle with standard velocity ammunition.
The shots are fired from the prone position in a total time limit of 75 minutes.
The men's rifle must not weigh more than 8kg and the women's not more than 6.5kg.
Prone is the most contested singular event in Australia and would be regarded as the most popular. There are local
variations that include a short range event at 20 metres, and a long range event over 90 metres.
