    2 minutes starts from when you first put your eye to the scope,not when you take up your position.


    There is plenty of humour on here and a lot of people that make better use of their 14th post.

    This is quite a comprehensive view of FT. I do have one question on the KZs so I can practice these. I have gleaned that the normal overall Max KZ is 40mm. Is there a minimum KZ for a given range of targets eg 15mm for 10-25 yards.

    TIA
    Phil

    40mm KZ - 10-55 yards
    25mm KZ - 10-35 yards
    15mm KZ - 10-25 yards

    Thanks for the reply Brian Samson. So if I get this correct. The minimum KZ for 10-25 yards is 15mm. The minimum for 25-35 yards is 25mm. The minimum for 35-55 yards is 40mm.

    No, that's wrong, you have misread Brian's information.

    A 40mm kill can be used at 10 yards if the course setter chooses, or a 25mm or a 15mm.

    The maximum distance any target can be set at is 55 yards, and that target will have a 40mm kz.

    The minimum distance any target can be set at is 10 yards. That target can have a 15mm, 25mm or 40mm kz.

    For any target set between the minimum range and 25 yards, a 15, 25 or 40mm kz can be used, beyond 25 yards only a 25mm or 40mm kz can be used and beyond 35 yards only a 40mm kz can be used.

    Tworods was enquiring about the minimum KZ at given ranges, Brian's information was read correctly (by me atleast, tworods was only slightly out though)
