Just to clarify, in case it's not obvious, but the rules don't state that you have
to go prone, it's just that if you do it needs to be unsupported.
These rules are to used in conjunction with the
B.F.T.A. MAIN SHOOT RULES and the GRAND PRIX SHOOT RULES
Air Rifles of any calibre, which comply with the Statutory Regulations and BFTA Limitations in force at the time of the event, may be used. In any event specified for Air Pistols the Statutory Regulations together with the BFTA Limitations for Air pistols shall apply.
SIGHTS and SIGHTING
Any form of sighting system may be used with the exception of Laser sights. No separate device designed specifically for range finding may be used. The power of any telescopic sight must be limited to 12 (twelve) times magnification, larger power sights may be turned down for the competition.
The sight must be set for distance, magnification (up to 12 times) and elevation in each lane before looking through the sight at the first target. The sight settings from the first target may not be varied or adjusted before shooting at the second target.
If a Sporting Gun Competitor is partnered with a Field Target shooter the former must shoot first, this is to ensure no unfair advantage is gained.
Any design of pellet that is completely made of lead or lead alloy may be used.
METHOD OF SCORING
Normal FT Scoring shall apply, 1 (one) point if the target falls and 0 (zero) for the faceplate.
