The mag was limited so people wouldn't use larger mag scopes & attemp to parallax rangefind plus it was instigated to try & get HFT shooters interested in FT shooting & most HFT shooters use 10x mag max
Redfearns had to do this also for the Anglo as one year a few shooters switched to high mag scopes for the second day
