My interpretation of approaching the peg was a little different than yours so I'll follow what you've said.
We had a chap last year who would approach the peg, take 2 minutes range finding the target, then go back get his gun, have another look. wait for the wind to drop and then put the scope to his eye and start the 2 minutes from there.
So it was decided that when it is your turn to shoot, when you move to the peg and start looking for the target your 2 minutes starts.
Marshals show a large amount of discretion, but I think there are shooters out there starting to take the mick again and a clamp down may be on its way.
