    Giving my feet a rest after 6 days of course setting and shooting I thought I'd just look through the Course Format sheet for the Rivi HFT shoot.

    The course consisted of:
    2 x 15mm to 19mm reducers.
    6 x 20mm to 34mm reducers.
    22 x 35mm to 45mm full kills.

    6 targets out to 40to 45 yds.
    4 targets out to 35 to 39 yds.
    4 targets out to 30 to 34 yds.
    7 targets out to 25 to 29 yds.
    6 targets out to 20 to 24 yds.
    2 targets out to 15 to 19 yds.
    1 target out to 8 to 14 yds.

    The average target distance was 30.03 yds. The course was 306 yards long, and the hill was bloody steep.

    Yes I know but my feet are feeling much better now:D

    Do you analyse the cards after the shoot to tot up the scores achieved on each target? It's a fair bit of work but we're doing that this year in the SWEFTA FT league, giving feedback to the course setters.

    Sounds geeky, but interesting. I always pay attention to what the top scorers missed, and try to listen out for peculiar targets which catch people out.

    At the CGC WL there was a 40mm 20yd target on the live range which had a suprising amount of misses. But then the wind was being a bitch sometimes.

    Only '306 yards long' ? :eek: :confused:

    After walking it for several days in advance of the competition day helping setting up the course I could have sworn it was far longer. ;)

    Interesting facts there Ray. Now, whats better - .177 or .22? :p
