### Puzzle explanation

The grid represented a target in a shooting gallery, with each radial entry being an Inward or Outward shot and every letter O in a radial answer representing a bullet hole. The extra letters in wordplay for ring entries gave the Roman numerals IVXLCD (reading inwards), implying M for the bull, so each O scored 1, 5, 10, …, 1000, according to which ring it was in. The Inward total included two 500s, for the two shots that landed in the same place, from radial entries 13 and 14.
