    Probably a bit of a daft question but what does the letters IR and FK stand for on the score sheets ? Sorry if I seem thick

    Paul is correct

    If you finish the WL in the top 15 then you qualify to represent the MFTA at the inter-regional competition in April
    If you finish in the top 30 then you qualify to represent the MFTA in the Frayed Knot contest.

    varied results

    It's interesting how different the two session were , with hand on heart I can honestly say that the most I gave was 1 kill out and one of those was too much.
    The trees were going mad but the grass on the ground told a completely different story, Jon was bang on with his prediction. Having said that I don't think he believed himself ,because he was amazed by how many went virtually straight.
    Was Shaun using his leup or Sightron?

    Ergh straight

    I wished mine had gone straight , my first target was a 45 yarder , came off a kill width and it sailed past and only just kept in the plate , joy of ft ,when you pull the trigger . I got the long ones but I did not give the others enough , until the next time X cracking shooting Simon

    Its all skill

    I did nothing special Sue maybe Mr Evans is correct and i'm getting more Skillful :rolleyes:
    I gave target 1 a full kill of wind to the left and when I reset it and looked it had just crept in, three lanes up with a slightly stronger wind and it did not make the kill , maybe it's the lock time:eek:

    It was his Sightron Simon, I bought his Leup at Greyhound and he's never getting it back, it's beyond awesome, I got the Sightron I'd ordered a week later but wish I'd not bothered now because it doesn't come close to the Leup!

    Different scopes

    The picture through a leupold is amazing but you are stuck with fixed mag. I asked because with variable magnification you can always go down to give a bigger field of view. If Shaun was on 10 mag that's a lot of wind. Lol
    Leupolds are a proven winner but they have to be learnt so make mental notes when it tells you porkies.

    Agreed but I shoot everything on x40 anyway so no big change of routine for me, I've been lucky in that I've taken straight to it, popped it on last Wednesday and had 2 of my best shoots to date using it (not counting Millride in that)

    Heard it takes a good while to learn but, touch wood, I've been able to trust it so far
