Don't worry, probably just a German trick to get you Tommies nervous even before the match.
A .177 pellet at 12fpe will never, never reach 300 meters. We've tested that at our own shooting range and the max range we were able to get our pellets was between 160 and 190 meters. No matter what angle we put our barrels, no further than 190 meters.
But I agree that it might feel uncomfortable.
