Most rifle & stock designs can be used for UKAHFT competition as long as they are within the following rules:
Forend depth is limited to a maximum of 150mm
, this is measured from the centre of the barrel to the lowest part of the rifle forward of the pistol grip.
FT style butt hooks are not allowed, although the paddle style of butt pad is allowed.
The paddles of the buttpad must not exceed 2.25" in length
When standing or kneeling, no part of the rifle may be in contact with the ground.
When taking a prone shot the only part of the rifle which may be touching the ground is the bottom edge of the butt pad, no other device or buttpad extension may rest on the ground
