What is FT
As comprehensive a response as I've ever seen on any forum. Great
А wonderful guide .
Never knew about the Troyer scale .. very interesting read
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.
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.
Minimum KZ for 10-25 yards is 15mm
Minimum KZ for 26-35 yards is 25mm
Minimum KZ for 36-55 yards is 40mm
Based on the information Brian supplied
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.
Uness shooting a swefta course
Well of course, that goes without saying Simon.
Nail a 15mm at any range from 10-55yds sitting, standing or kneeling and you'll be well covered for any course...
That’s what Lanky was saying Neil
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)
