I tried to understand how this drill works, and it's not adding up. I think the instructions for each portion of the drill are after the course rather than before.

Very confusing (to this olde dinosaur).

You fire the specified number of rounds at each distance, with the time limit for each distance as shown. At the end of the 30 shots, count up your score.

What part did you find confusing?

All of it,, unfortunately. Which is a disappointment, because I've been saving all your monthly drills for future reference.

John's way of laying out the course of fire is much easier to comprehend.

As it turns out, Tom, your April 2019 drill uses the exact same name (which is confusing enough), but was presented in a much clearer manner and is a completely different drill. I pulled that up on my computer and used it as a template to reformat the new drill, before Is aw that John had done pretty much the same thing.
