If you already have a .20 cal rifle, you could use it for FT, but if you are considering buying an FT rifle then mostly for trajectory reasons, but also because of pellet choice, .177 is what pretty much all shooters use.

For what ever shooting purpose .20 has almost become obsolete as the heavier .177 and lighter .22 pellets that are available these days leave no gap to be filled. And I can see the pellet choice that has always been very limited in .20 becoming even more so! Of course if you want one just to be different it is still there but the arguments in its favour have dwindled. And certainly for HFT and to some extent FT it will handicap you as well.
HFT, for people with only 2 buttucks!
