One reason why we've taken to using quite small kills here and there in this region, is that they make the shooter concentrate on technique, and accurate rangefinding and wind allowance are not so crucial.

Let's face it, you don't need a 500 scope to tell you that a half inch target at 23 yards is more than 20 yards and less than 25 yards away. For most rigs, the aim point barely changes a millimetre even if you are a yard out with the rangefinding at that distance. So a junior or new shooter with a S400 or even a S200 with a 6-24 front focus scope costing 100 or less, is just as capable with that relatively modest rig as they would be with a Steyr and a Sightron, for example.
