Default HFT Novice to Ninja

I'm starting to write a series of articles which will eventually build up to form a sort of manual for HFT. Along the way, I'll update the rangefinding manual I wrote about 5 years ago now.

The first article in the series which I've given the tongue in cheek name of HFT Novice to Ninja is a Scope setup manual for HFT. Done in a similar vein to the FT Scope Setup manual. (I've also nicked a couple of paragraphs and a couple of illustrations from that manual).

You can read the first article in the series here : HFT Scope setup guide

Have a read through and let me know if I've made any mistakes or missed out something important.

Thanks
Brian

Thanks Rob

The section on optical centring the hard way might be sketchy/wrong because I've never actually used that method myself, the mirror method has always worked for me in the past. That's the way **** Thomas from Premier reticles told me to do it and I've stuck with that method ever since.

I'm sure Wayne Hudson (Anston founding member and author of the FT setup manual) won't mind me pinching the HFT relevant bits out of his original work, but if anyone know's his email address could they let me know so I can drop him a line please.

I remember when I first started competition shooting - it probably took me 3 months of practice twice a week to get it anywhere near right and it's something I have to re-visit from time to time when I start shooting like a muppet

I'll probably borrow most of this section from the BFTA Training manual and throw in what I can remember from "Ways of the Rifle" (I don't have a copy of that book anymore, but it's an excellent read if you can filter out the things that don't apply to HFT/FT)
