5. Shoot a minimum of 20 pellets, recording the velocity and kinetic energy at a distance of no more than
50cm from the muzzle.

This should be done with a light, medium and heavy pellet.

This was probably a bit unfair.

It's the AMTA test that rifles being tested for AT have to pass.
I suspect that the only rifles subject to such a test are those submitted to the Birmingham Proof House. Rifles would not be tested to this during production.
