But I must just point out that SWEFTA courses are allowed 40% of the targets as reducers down to 12.7mm and it's not that long ago that we had them down to 10mm so I stand by my opinion that the average SWEFTA course is harder than the average GP.

Not really disagreeing in all respects as I think some Gp have been too easy again this year due to a lack of wind. thats not to say they were not good courses.
My fav two gp this year have been ours and anston. both had wind and thus you had to be able to shot in the kill and out. i think there were a was a wider spread of results in thise than say gp4, where i stayed in the kill for all 50 shots. Not much of a test of shooting skill to me that day, more balance.

Given the same wind conditions, i would say a bunch of short range mini klills will be cleared far more often than a Gp full size course Alec. Mini kills become hard and very quickly lottery in wind. I like reducers / 15 ml, but they have to be in the right lanes.
