Someone educate me please.
I thought (and this is the way we've been deciding results at NC):
1) highest score wins
2) if scores are tied then highest X count wins
3) if scores and X counts are tied then whoever missed an X first "loses".
4) if both shooter's targets are identical then they shoot again to decide a winner. Once in a blue moon stuff I guess.
So if Bob and Koos both shoot 250 20x, but Bob didn't get an X on target 1 and Koos did get an X on target 1, then Koos beats Bob.
Now I'm making an assumption. The scores posted have an "FM" column. I am ass-u-ming that means "First Miss". Let's use the winning junior - second round he got 9X and got his "First Miss" on target 15 ... but if he missed his first X on target 15 then he got at least 14X ... ? Huh wut?!
Ergo, FM isn't "First Miss"? Or there's some other mechanism I don't see / know about.

8g First Miss (FM):
All targets will be scored for FM. The Scorer will check the target box’s starting with the #1 target box. First target box that is not a 10 will be recorded as FM. If target box 1 through 25 are all 10’s (250 Score) go to #1 target box and check X's. The first target box that is not an X will be recorded as FM. If a tie still exists (250 25X), go to #1 target box and the first X that is not completely plugged out will be recorded as FM. (All FM recorded in the Target Score area and not in target boxes.)
