    You may find that there are some slight variations if you are shooting within a regional league, but will be pretty to close to the UKAHFT rules listed on here.

    UKAHFT rules are here

    Bear in mind that whatever mag you shoot at can't be changed on your way around the course, neither can the paralax. As such, the higher the mag, the more you are going to struggle with clarity of focus at the extremes of range. The large objective lense on your scope may will also restrict your depth of field, again affetcing how clear some targets are.

    x10 is pretty common, with paralax often between 25 and 30 yards. This is likely to give a little blur at 45 yards, and blur on the closer targets, but kills should still be visible.

    You will with a 60mm objective mate. Normally 40 - 44 mm is used in HFT due to the depth of field needed.
    Mag and parallax are a personal choice really but as said commonly used are x10/25 yard.
    You may have more success getting another scope with some lower mounts.

    Cheers Dave, now thinking of getting an HFT rig;)
    I enjoyed the different diciplines!
    the supported standers and kneelers are true to hunting!
    will be after xmas before i can get an HFT rig but still may even struggle on with my FT rig!:rolleyes:

    Having chatted with you before you went on the course I think you should be more than happy with what you scored, beat me by 2 points and I was using a hft rig:confused:
    Hopefully see you at another round of the Midlands
