    You learn a lot more by being there though.

    Not all the info on the guns scopes is 100% up to date due to some late changes, but it acts as a rough guide.

    From that it tells me you can have a £2500 rifle and scope and a £600 rifle and £500 scope it's totally down to the shooter and how much time and effort they stick in is what matters

    have to agree, but surely the top end FT rifles do seem to be at the top even though I do think a lot is down to the shooters ability that's for sure,, its like anything sport wise, the more practice you put in the better the competitor you become

    Suitability

    The most suitable equipment which has been set up for the individual shooter just makes it easier, faster or more convenient for the shooter to achieve the results they strive for. The less time a shooter spends worrying about equipment the more time and effort can be spent on honing skills.

    The Steyr LG model may not be the best competition rifle, but it appears to be the most suitable for the majority of top grade FT shooters and those striving for the top.

    Looking at the scopes used, It seems the use of leupold scopes is on the decline compared to the big nikko and the sightron..!

    Most likely because since the demise of Premier Reticules something like ten years ago, there are no longer any variable magnification Leupolds available new that are suitable for FT. And Leup themselves appear to have no interest in making one.

    The only viable Leups were the 20-50 and the competition series in whatever flavour x35,x40 & x45. The 20-50 had a steep learning curve and was susceptible to temperature variations though less than the earlier EFR scopes. The comp. series is a superb fixed mag. range-finder, probably the best all round FT scope for clarity, lightness and performance only let down by the redicilously thin reticle which was easy to lose especially in woodland or against any fussy background.

    Ah, and you needed to have a properly fitting gun, i.e. be able to look at the target and smoothly bring the rifle up and you're looking right at it. No zooming out to find the target while the clock ticks with this baby.

    Given the choice of any scope for FT I would go for a x40 competition with a decent reticle every time, it was the March of it's day and at £700 was a steal.
