1st case : the short limit 50 was final, it was repeated, obtaining 50 (+), then a verifying group of 4 round was shot.

case 1 : the limit was accepted as probable range and maintained.

 

cases 2 and 5 : the bracket was abandoned : 1 round at the same elevation was fired, changing the limit of 2 graduations in the other side (48); if an opposite observation () or a new bracket of 2 graduations was not obtained, the high and the low brackets were made sequence, taking into account the observations obtained before.

 

cases 3 and 4 : the long limit (52) was repeated.

cases 8 and 9 : the bracket was abandoned : 1 round at the same elevation was fired, changing the limit of 2 graduations in the other side (54); if another short round () was obtained, the bracket was regarded as false, and the high and the low brackets were made sequence, taking into account the observations obtained before.

cases 13 and 14 : the fire was moved to the middle of the bracket (51) and a new group of 4 rounds was shot.

Staying at one of the limits (cases 2-5, 7-10, 12, 15, 18-19, 22-24) or firing at the middle of the bracket (cases 13, 14, 17, 20), the observations were raised to 6-8 and the limit was accepted if the short rounds were 2-4 or 3-5. With more rounds, the short rounds should be from to , otherwise the shell fire was carried on changing the elevation of 1 graduation.
