Bravo Ripsaw! It is very helpful and simplifies the categories immensely.

 

I agree with OLG. It should be pinned!

 

Thank you, Allie Mo, for doing an initial review and providing valuable feedback to the original version.

Here's an updated version. Got some good comments and moved Cap and Ball to the pistol column.  If you see anything amiss, please let me know and I'll make any necessary corrections.

Not sure why. I just downloaded it and opened it. You have Adobe?

Billy, did you see a box on your window asking what to do with it. I did and selected download, then open.

 

Try that.

no, an error code that I did not have permission to open.  I have seen this message before on posts with pdf's.

This sounds like windows security blocking the opening of documents from the internet.

It took awhile for me to open the attachment as my tablet wouldn't do it.

 

Yes the matrix is a vast improvement clearly showing the whole story.  Great work

Great Matrix!!! Many thanks :)

 

Some more detail: Now it looks like one could shoot REALLY BIG BORES in classic cowboy/girl, as it only states:

" .40 or larger rimmed, .36 or larger cap and ball "

 

But of course, the overall upper caliber limit for SAS main matches is .45 (SHB p.37/39)

There is an exception for 56-60 in a rifle :D

Great catch. I'll update to reflect " .40 to .45 rimmed and .36 to .45 cap and ball"

Thanks!

There is no .45 C&B.  .44 is the largest.

Must be centerfire calibers of at least .32 caliber and no larger than .45 caliber or percussion calibers of at least .36 caliber and no larger than .45 caliber.

I  really like the way everyone worked together and didn't leave Ripsaw hanging.

 

Bravo to all who helped, especially Ripsaw for the idea and putting it together!

Some folks have reported issues downloading the pdf file. I don't know what the issue might be, so I'm posting a jpg (image) file version here.

Well, the jpg didn't upload at native resolution, so it's not very readable.  Not sure how to resolve.

I did not see if the folks having problems are using phones, tablets, or workstations.

I run a windows 7 workstation, with Acrobat Reader.
No problems at all, on my end.

I don't use a smartphone, nor a tablet.
My wife does both, and does have problems with undisplayable content.

Ripsaw thinks like I do.  A spreadsheet makes it so much easier to navigate.  Fantastic job!  Now I can see what I can and can not participate in :D

I also live and breathe in spread sheets.

That latest PDF is sure nice, because not everybody has Excel.
I don't use phones nor tablets, so all I care about is it working properly on a desktop.

I no longer have to write software that runs on every possible platform.
Retirement is a wonderful thing.
