So, you can shoot WFTF HFT with 16X now?
Quote from: Bryan H. on November 13, 2018, 11:24:45 AMSo, you can shoot WFTF HFT with 16X now?WFTF along with OPEN class are unlimited on X magnification. ( Can shoot holdover or clicking )HUNTER classes had been at a 12X limit until the 2018 season where the limit was raised to 16x ( Can ONLY shoot holdover .. NO clicking allowed )
I was just looking at WFTF rules and I could not find WFTF rules specific to HFT. Gonna check that kink out right now. Thanks Ed.
When you are talking about scope height, are you referring to center line of scope in relation to bore? I recently picked up a 60mm objective scope, and are currently trying to figure what I would need in the way of scope rings for proper scope height. I too will be shooting WFTF rules here stateside.
The 12fpe WFTF limit will have some bearing on scope height. The very high scopes are not really needed on most USA courses. At USA AAFTA matches, you will see more close targets, and they will be more difficult (0.375" for AAFTA vs 0.59" for WFTF). The course layout has even more affect on optimal scope height than does the power level (12fpe vs 20fpe).
...I really like your method of evaluating optimum scope height. I never gave it much thought as I always favored the lowest position I could get which on my competition rifles was always between 1.8 and 2.1 inches. Based on your analysis that seems to be optimal for US FT courses. Thanks,Jim in Sacramento
Scvott;Very interesting, but it begs a question:WHERE are you measuring the "height". żAre we talking SCOPE height? OR żAre we talking LOS height?PP Calc uses LOS height, so it is measured/calculated/corrected to the muzzle.I find that 2.5" to 2.6" at the saddle is a good height, as the BALANCE of the gun is more manageable. Going to 3" and more makes my gun feel "tippy" and that is more important than the theoretical optimum scope height.JMHOHM
