    A bit of a mention about their shooters shooting 13mm reducers out to 20m... so check your ranges carefully, and i'd be seriously thinking about going at every yard from 8-20yds... they will drive you mad if you don't know exactly where your going at 13.5yds (as charlieM from swefta will testify... )

    Rob,

    Most HFT shooters, for 15mm killzones, have seperate range cards, for 13 to 25 yds.

    So would fully endorse your thoughts.

    they are also commenting that we arent used to flat land courses and hope to use there flat terrain as an advantage have they not shot in sywells field in the blistering heat :D

    so possibly not many up the trees with the lions or in streams with the hippos then

    possibly giving that position every room for an advantage it can get?

    actually, having a fiddle with chairgun, given that the shoot is at 5500 ft... chairgun says you will need less clicks, for me, something in the region of 2-3 less 1/4 MOA clicks out to 55yds...

    so it would seem you should be redoing your ranges when you get out there anyway... especially if your on 1/8ths...

    perhaps I should take them falcons out after all :D

    Those evil little miserable excuses for knockdowns :mad:

    I've actually started to give in and have settings for every 2yrds now for the Steyr. Resistence was futile and I need to curb my father Jack style outbursts each time I come up against them.

    Best of luck to all of you heading out to the worlds hope you have a fantastic time. It looks like it will be really good and I for one am very envious.

    you know you love em :D

    you need every yd to be honest charlie... 2 years of shooting reducer alley at CGC with 15's all the way out to 25 taught me that... just gives you the confidence... that said, i only have 2-2.5 at the moment, but that will change when i go out there.

    5500 ft elevation will mean nearly a 20 percent reduction in barometric pressure compared to sea level.
