As per the current form of the world’s best shooters, a qualification score of 598 should easily get Abhinav and Gagan into the finals, meaning they have the liberty to shoot two shots each on the ninth ring out of the 60 shots.¬†

In shooting, the difference in qualification points of the ultimate gold-winner and the 10th place finisher is not be more than two or three points. An additional nine would make things tough but they could even qualify with a 597 in the bottom four out of the eight finalists.

A point lesser than that, 596, will certainly not be a clear qualification and shooters would need to go through a shoot-off to win the bottom slots.
