Yeah, didn't know each region had AA shooters, that's good to know and great for the sport.

Indeed, guess the only thing to solve that is stop the 100%, that may curb it a bit but is the total solution.

If you look to CSFTA and SWEFTA, both with world top 10 shooters in AA, both have %'s running about 7-8% higher in regional grades than they do in their GP series (over similar amount of shoots)... which means (as they are both leading) that everyone is likely to be doing the same below them, or even more % gained if the courses are considered easier than GP (which have more standers for instance).

Whilst one could argue all regions are the same, we know their not, and 30-40 shot courses ad another skew.

Depending on how you weight your shooting will depend on how your grade is biased. And against another shooter who is biased the other way, there will be a discrepancy all other things being equal.
