2. Fast Drill @ 7 yards: Minimum time hack is 7s and recommended standard is sub 6s

4. Walk Back Drill
Starting at 10 yards, shoot one round on steel.
Walk back 10 yards, and shoot another round on steel.
Repeat this process and walk back as far as you can go before missing repeatedly.
Normally, a shooter gets two shots at each distance. If the shooter misses both shots at a particular distance, the drill is finished and he has reached the limit at which his/her fundamentals break down.
An athlete competing in the Elite Division should be able to shoot fairly easily out to 50 yards and beyond. Great shooters can continue to hit steel out to well over 100 yards.
Elite athletes may encounter:
150# - 200# Sandbag carries and lifts
