I'm not so comfortable with that.
If you are shooting to UKAHFT rules, I'd read the rules of the sport you are shooting ...

" ... all elevated shots that are either 15mm, 20mm & 25mm cannot be closer than 20 yards and must have an 18” peg."

So I wouldn't worry about those 15mm kills at 45 degrees at 13 yards ... isn't going to happen. A 45 degree 15mm at 20 yards is 20 yards up in the air ... that's 60 feet. That's 3 times higher than my two story house. I don't think you need worry about those either.
