Cheers,

No offence taken, obviously what I have learnt and tried since starting F.T. shooting back in the early 80's gives me a good insight on how to set up the gun and scope and overcome any quirks that may arise. It's just a shame I spent so much time being on FT committees and not fully enjoying shooting as I should have done.

Anyway I am back to enjoy the shooting this time.

You might be able to get away with using one set up for both disciplines if you don't want to be competitive at either. HFT on it's own is a compromise of settings to best achieve what you see as important and what you can afford to fudge a bit without having to compromise further to make it also make a little sense for FT. You need 2 rifles, then there are no butt hook issues either.

2.25 inches mate , not 2.5, I share your pain , sometimes best not ask the definitive questions , if it aint defined it cant b enforced, before the windicator rule came out in hft people wanted a definitive, grass , sawdust talc ciggaretts etc ,be careful on what question you ask out there,
I filed about 1\4 inch of a ftp paddle to make it comply with previous federation definitions

Cheers Tench and Vinny, the problem I have is the action I am using is so efficient and accurate.

So I will have to look at some other way round my problem.

Cheers,

It's got me thinking now.

Default Awful isn't it..?

I fully agree that having an efficient and accurate gun can be a real problem..........have you considered buying a Daystate to overcome the accuracy problem? There are many guns that return few accurate shots per fill, there by being inefficient AND inacurate, the perfect gun...???? I confused, do I look confused...is this my confused face?

Good luck....
