Just be aware of safety and risk of injury associated with placing targets so close to shooters.

Personally I`ll be proposing to MFTA and subsequently the BFTA that these targets are removed from ALL field target events as they are serious risk for injury.

To be fair gilly,the problem with the target that you are referring to was not it,s kill size.
There was nothing stopping the coarse setter,s from putting a 40mm kill at 20 yards.
The issue was that being 20yds forward of the main firing line,you were parallel with the target.
If that target had been the other side of the tree,there would not have been a problem.
That,s a mistake that I doubt will be replicated,at far coley.
