The Short Metric archery round is a round shot at metre distances. You need to shoot 2 different distances in these rounds and you only usually get a set time for practice arrows or around 2 or 3 ends at the longest distance.
The Short Metric archery round is shot on a smaller 80cm target face and you score the rounds using standard 10 zone scoring.
The total arrow count on the Short Metric archery round is 72 arrows and the maximum score you can get is 720.
Your arrow count is divided equally among the two distances so you shoot 36 arrows at the first longest distance, then 36 arrows at the second shorter distance.
You could think of the Short Metric as being the second half of the WA1440 round.
Here are the different Short Metric rounds you can shoot:
Short Metric 1 – 50m and 30m
Short Metric 2 – 40m and 30m
Short Metric 3 – 30m and 20m
Short Metric 4 – 20m and 10m
