It's pretty much the same answer with distance, sticking everything at 50+ isn't the answer either, a good course setter will know the land and wind, they'll use that to make to course interesting/tricky rather than something that is really boring, takes no range finding and feels like at chore by lane 10.
I did note that the scores were very high and pretty consistant across the board.
I wonder if this will be the case when the worlds comes to Wales . That's when the rest of the world will realise why 7 of the top 10 were from the UK. As for 15mm kills they are not really a test of skill more a test of setup.
About as much use at field target , as a life guard at the Olympic swimming pool.
