Outer Limits

Outer Limits is the only stage in Steel Challenge where movement is part of your timed performance. Remember to keep your firearm pointed down range and your finger out of the trigger guard as you move to the second position.

Engage (T1-T4) Finish on Stop Plate (SP) - Competitors shoot four strings, starting from their respective weak-side shooting box. Right-handed shooters will begin from the left, and left-handed shooters will start from the right.
