Reason: This gives shooters a division who want to compete without having to spend large sums of money to compete in F-Open or F-T/R. .
Reason: 100yd ranges are plentiful in the United States, however the only official course of fire open to them is Across the Course. Some people do not shoot Across the Course because of physical reasons or because they are just not interested. This gives the clubs and members of clubs that shoot at 100yd ranges another option for a course of fire to get people out and competing. This is kept different from other prone course of fire so you do not have the issue of reduced course High Masters like you see in Across the Course. The classifications of 100yd Prone and 100yd F-Class DO NOT correspond to Mid Range or Long Range equivalents.
