    I know this might sound stupid but why when shooting SFT must scope magnification be no more than x12?
    What would the advantage be in shooting at x16?

    bigger image, amplifies the wobble factor so you can train to reduce it.

    The mag was limited so people wouldn't use larger mag scopes & attemp to parallax rangefind plus it was instigated to try & get HFT shooters interested in FT shooting & most HFT shooters use 10x mag max

    Redfearns had to do this also for the Anglo as one year a few shooters switched to high mag scopes for the second day:rolleyes:
