1999 saw a continuation of the format favored by competitors, all shots count towards the National Championship, no qualifying match. This will again be the format in 2000, although, Greg Connor of the NRA wants to go back to the mostly hated qualifying match format. The wishes of the shooters are never of much concern to the NRA.
