Felthurtigskyting, literally Field-Rapid-Shooting, is a practical rifle competition popular in Scandinavia, where the shooter has to engage three different targets placed at different distances with one shot each in the shortest time possible.
Competitions are arranged by Det frivillige Skyttervesen in Norway, Svenska Skyttesportförbundet in Sweden and Danske Gymnastik- & Idrætsforeninger in Denmark. Felthurtigskyting is one of the disciplines in the Nordic Championship held each year.
Maximum 6 rounds can be used, starting from the standing position with the rifle loaded and the safety catch applied. The shooting position is freestyle, but generally the prone position is used. At the command "Fire" the shooter disengages the safety catch and assumes firing position. The targets used are two «Småen» at maximum 150 meters, and either a 1/3 target (third target) at maximum 275 meters or a 1/4 target (quarter target) at maximum 225 meters. The two nearest targets must be shot before moving to the farthest.
- Småen measures 305 mm wide and 250 mm high, which placed at the maximum distance of 150 meters corresponds to an angular size of about 2 milliradians wide and 1.7 mil high.
- The 1/3 target measures 500 mm wide and 480 mm high, which placed at the maximum distance of 275 meters corresponds to an angular size of about 1.8 mil wide and 1.7 mil high.
- The 1/4 target measures 330 mm wide and 490 mm high, which placed at the maximum distance of 225 meters corresponds to an angular size of about 1.5 mil wide and 2.2 mil high.
