If i want to shoot that range i would do at home but never have done or ever will do.

FT GP series has took a backwards this year with too many rules. What should have been done is scrap max distances on the type of shot to raise the game. This being done by course builders at their discretion making the most of the available ground! That s the enjoyment after all what do we do FT for?

Theres many countries using 6ft/lb rifles, hence the use of mini kills.

I dont have a problem with minis as such, now if they were at decent ranges to make what FT is about then yes.
How about thinking about this differently? Instead of having a distance hang up why not look at the sizes of kill a-la american style targets (down to 3/8"-9mm)?
