Default What Mag do you use for Field Target

Few people been talking about What Mag other shooters use in Ft and I thaught it was worth a Q?

I think on average x40 is about the most common, but lets see

I've not shot FT (Yet!). I'd always assumed you guys would range on the top mag you have, then turn it down to x10 to shoot.

How on earth you shoot at such a hi mag is beyond me. All credit to you, but I think I'd be wobbling all over the place lol. I'm bad enough at x10 haha
