Olympic Bunker Overview

An international discipline that incorporates fifteen machines.

Targets have a minimum height of 1.5 meters and a maximum height of 3.5 meters as measured 10 meters in front of the bunker.

Targets are thrown at an average speed of 62 mph depending on the target height to get the 76 m +/-1 m meter distance required.

The maximum target angle is 45 degrees.

There are nine set programs for the fifteen traps that are used in all countries of the world.

A squad of six shooters take turns shooting from five stations.

Shooters move to the next station after each target in a shoot-and-move rotation.

Beverley Clay Target Centre - UK

The shooting stations are located in a straight line. On the call “pull” (phono-pull release system is utilized to insure equitable target releases), a clay is thrown from one of three fixed traps directly in front of each of five shooters.

    The voice release system used in London was made by Electro Progretti. The EP box is capable of throwing in the neighborhood of 30 different events, as well as scoring and outputting data to scoreboards, etc.

    Olympic voice call have no delay for trap. Skeet has a 0-3 Second Delay and Double trap is 0-1 Second. The microphone is only on when its the individual shooters turn, not for all shooters, as in American trap.

Two shots may be used for each target with no penalty in scoring. In finals only one shot allowed!

Each shooter gets two lefts, two rights, and one straightaway target from each station (Presentations sequence computer controlled).

Shot charge is restricted to 24 Grams (approx. 7/8 oz.) using any safe powder charge (plated shot is allowed).

The Olympic target is made harder, so to handle the higher target speed. The target is of different size than the standard American trap target.

Olympic Bunker Doubles

Two targets are launched simultaneously from two traps of station three’s set of three fixed traps. As in Olympic singles, squads of six shooters shoot in rotation from five stations, shooting a round of 20 or 25 pairs (40 or 50 targets). Scoring is one point per target hit.

Sanctioned Competitions (USA)

  • USA Match Directors may allow up to 1 – 1/8 oz. loads if stated in the program. No national USA records may be set if 1 1/8 oz loads are used.

  • Eye Protection: All shooters are urged to wear shatterproof shooting glasses or similar eye protection.

  • Release Trigger (USA): Any competitor using any type of release trigger can not compete in any finals rounds and can not make the National Team, National Development Team or any USA Shooting Team.

  • Smoking: Smoking is prohibited on the ranges and in the official spectator area.

  • Lost: Shooter is not able to fire the gun for any reason attributable to the fault of the shooter.

  • Target Distance: 76 m +/-1 m
