I don't shoot FT but perhaps the following comments prove useful:-
Scope for FT is used for range finding so exactly the opposite of HFT, something like 60 mag and narrow depth of field so 50+ objective lens, I guess what I am saying is your current scope is not optimum, so whichever route you take a scope change is required.
If you think your current R10 is accurate enough it needs an adjustable cheekpiece and butt plate ( this is true for HFT also as for rifle fit) both of which can be done to your current stock by a competent person. The cost for this stock conversion should be approx £80 ish.
Your HFT shooting would improve with stock mods anyway.
Your biggest investment either way is probably the scope.
Hope this helps, just my view tho.
