    B.F.T.A.SPORTING GUN GRADE, SHOOT RULES for 2009


    These rules are to be used in conjunction with the

    B.F.T.A. MAIN SHOOT RULES and the GRAND PRIX SHOOT RULES



    AIRGUNS
    Air Rifles of any caliber, which comply with the Statutory Regulations and BFTA Limitations in force at the time of the event, may be used. In any event specified for Air Pistols the Statutory Regulations together with the BFTA Limitations for Air pistols shall apply.


    SIGHTS and SIGHTING.
    Any form of sighting system may be used with the exception of Laser sights. No separate device designed specifically for range finding may be used. The power of any telescopic sight must be limited to 12 (twelve) times magnification, larger power sights may be turned down for the competition.


    The sight must be set for distance, magnification (up to 12 times) and elevation in each lane before looking through the sight at the first Target. The sight settings from the first target may not be varied or adjusted before shooting at the second target.


    GENERAL
    If a sporting Gun Competitor is partnered with a field target shooter the former must shoot first; this is to ensure no unfair advantage is gained.


    AMMUNITION.
    Any design of pellet that is completely made of lead or lead alloy may be used.


    METHOD OF SCORING
    Normal FT Scoring shall apply, 1 (one) point if the target falls and 0 (zero) for the faceplate.
    Any shooting position is allowed including sitting and prone (except forced positional shots)
    RULES The above rules must be strictly adhered to.

    i thought it could be easier if you have 2 targets over 45 yrds you can alter your paralax so you can see a clear target

    BUT if one target is close and one over 45 then yeh harder :eek:

    you`ll enjoy it just the same mate :D

    Not really as very few will do it prone from the elbows, most sit down so it's really FT with a HFT rifle:D
