This is what works for me. If the target is not centered on the paper that could be problematic.

I work at a public 200yd range & I'm trying to wrap my head around why you'd need to qualify to shoot at a 200yd table. The folks that gravitate to the "big" end tend to know what they're doing & generally behave pretty well. That's often not the case at the shorter end of the range.

My club has a 400 yard range. The 100 and 200 yard lines are directly behind one another. The 300 and 400 are off to the left of the other line. I rarely see anyone shoot the 400 line. I have coached a bunch of shooters out to 400 once they were on at 100 but it is not required to give it a go at 400. We expect people not to shoot beyond their abilities.

The 200 yard Range also has 100 yard positions. So people use these to sight in Hunting Rifles or to just stay away from the 25/50/100 yard Range that is crowded at times.

This being said there were Reports of Rounds going over the Berm at the 200 yard . To address this they raised the berm and require a qualification that in their eyes will keep the less experienced from killing some Fisherman in the rear of the property.
The busy Range has a Berm with a steel Roof/Trap to help keep Bullets from going over the top from people who ,well can't shoot or use flattop AR's without any sights because they came there from the store an hour ago.

I guess the State is trying to keep it safe without being too heavy handed.
No Blue wrist band no 200 yards.
