    Does the actual kill cut out on the plate have to be round or could I have a half or cresent moon shape or any other shape for that matter ? :D
    Also does the target have to have a plate at all, I thought it had to have 10mm of plate minimum, or am I mistaken in thinking that..
    All Q's are regarding a UKAHFT course format.

    Cheers

    Wouldn't an irregular shaped KZ just count as obscured Steve?

    That's the sort of question I would expect from Nick :rolleyes:

    Sleep depravation is a terrible thing :D

    With targets with a kill zone of 35mm to 45mm you can have up to 50% of the kill zone obscured (up to 6 in total).

    There's nothing in the rules to say that they can't be obscured on the faceplate. Say for arguments sake you fastened a zig-zag cut plate over the kill. As long as 50% of the kill was visible is should be approved.

    Run it past our organisers :)

    i think i have asked this already but i can't remember

    whats the logic in allowing 50% of a 35mm kill at 45 yards to be covered up but not having 25mm kills out to that distance :)

    I only asked as it would obscure the kill without stuffing a bit of wood in front of it, just makes it the same for everyone, no chance anything can move, no chance of bits getting shot off etc.

    But I suppose Steve does have a point in a way, why not just stick 1 25mm target between 35-45yds ?

    Maybe Dav'e right, maybe I'm just spouting bollox :D

    Sorry..:eek:

    What about the plate though, does there have to be a plate in a UKAHFT, pretty sure I asked & was told 10mm min, but something that got posted on another forum made me think thats all..

    also - if your allowed these plates why not just put one with a 25mm hole over the target - is that allowed in the rules :confused:

    No., because it would be less than 50% of the kill zone :D

    do the maths

    40mm = 5026 mm2
    35mm = 3848 mm2
    25mm = 1963 mm2

    half of a 35mm target is 1924

    so you could do it :D

    Hi Steve

    First of all yup it does have to have a plate as the scoring is 1 or a 2 and of course a 0 on times:cool: we do advise for nationals that its only a 40mm that can be obscured rather than a 35 mm & 10mm is the min.

    You could do a half moon if you wished all is needed is some metal over the kill.

    To answer others on here i think i have said it before if you half obsure a 40mm at 45 yards you still have 40mm showing whether it be top to bottom or side to side so that would be different to having a 25mm at 45 yards.

    I did and I don't think it works on any :p Mind you it's a long time since I was at school:)

    I thought it was the Radius squared not the Diameter for area of a circle ;)

    Doesn't matter if you did it with a piece of string and a ruler.

    You've still got to do it the right way :p:D
