A few years ago in some Polish Cup competitions they had the same problem i.e. too many shooters and long waiting times. Let me tell you their answer to the problem. They didn't want to start two sessions so their solution was 1 target on each lane (they were 40 shot competitions). It was a serious gymnastics training to sit down and stand up with the rifle 40 times but there were always 40 people shooting at a time.

If we had 60 targets on 60 lanes with two-men squads on the GP then 120 people could shoot one session in less time than the 75 does it now! And it would spread the top scores better, worth to think about it...
