It doesn't really matter to be honest - anything from 105 - 115 for Nockover will be fine.
Cheers I'll give it a pop at that!

As its from memory it's probably wrong however so a 'lie downer' will be along shortly to prove my point

Oy Mr BFTA Secretary....... I thought you were supposed to be impartial to all shooters instead of discriminating against us that shoot prone. Mind you on Saturday I could lie down but not get up, so I might have to take up shooting on a big fat cushion with the rest of you unfit yobs! No offence meant Paul.

Brian beat me to it, but I always use 110mm when setting up for a different scope. Seems to work well enough on that size but the trick is recognising what is a non fiddled with target. I dont use it much, but bracketing is especially useful if you shoot any mixed events such as HFT or SFT mixed with FT shooters out to 55 yards. Its the extra 10 yards that give the FT shooters a real advantage when they are dialling in and we struggle with quite blurred at 45 to just a blur at 55 when the pellet is dropping very quickly.

Oh yeah, Brian beat me to it, but I always use 110mm when setting up for a different scope. Seems to work well but the trick is recognising what is a non fiddled with target.

No offence intended my lovely, however 'unfit yobs' is a little harsh! I'll have you know I actually ran upstairs this afternoon, unfortunately, I could taste blood and could only hear my heartbeat for the next half hour but that's besides the point!

You keep threatening to buy a 'Bhudda Cushion' but I'm still waiting to see it! I hope your back feels better soon fella!

Well I was including myself in the unfit yobs bit! But Paul, maybe its time you bought a bungalow.


It didn't help on Saturday that my eldest daughter has just come back to HFT after 5 years away from shooting, and was only one point behind me. I feel old!


PS. I do now own a very nice Kilty armchair (better known as an FT cushion)

It IS a Bungalow, the 'upstairs' I speak of are the steps from the back door to the garden! What you trying to say Dean?

You just can't beat getting a wuppin' from the offspring, makes you feel all dead inside doesn't it!

Have you had your fitting for the kilty yet? Gimme a shout when you think you've a chance of braving an FT course!
