    Default Rules and Regulations for Field Target / HFT

    Could someone please explain to a newbie like myself (and im sure a lot of others) exactly whats involved in a FT and/or HFT competion?

    1. The limits on rifles, pcp and springer class.
    2. The number of shots fired.
    3. The shooting positions
    4. Roughly how the scoring system works
    5. What can a newbie expect?

    Your comments and advice would be appreciated.

    That would take pages upon pages to explain properly, why don't you just go to a shoot and see for yourself.

    Broadly speaking:

    1. Rifles restricted to 12ft.lbs power, generally for FT there is no limitation on design, bipods etc not allowed to be used for shooting support. For HFT check your local rules.

    2. Courses of fire will generally be between 30 and 50 targets, 1 shot per target.

    3. Shooting positions - freestyle: usually means sitting, although you may use the prone position if you like; standing; kneeling.

    4. In FT generally 1 point for knocking the target down, 0 if it remains standing. HFT often uses a system of 2 points for a knock down, 1 point for a face plate strike not resulting in fall of target, 0 for missing the target totally.

    5. A newbie should be able to expect to find advice from the regular participants if he asks for it and hopefully a friendly, welcoming atmosphere.

    Hi Dale.. just a question. I was under the impression that the total height of the sock from bore line to bottom may not excede 150mm?

    And more major diffs between FT /HFT

    HFT you are not allowed to sit in freestyle.
    HFT you must always touch the marker with a part of your body
    HFT you are allowed to take a rested shot from the natural environment of the course or the marker for that matter

    JT,
    I was trying to put up a very basic summary, not reproduce every detail. I would expect Ian to then read around the subject.

    Besides if you check the rules on the SAFTAA site I think you will find the 150mm bit has been dropped.

    aa great.. the 150mm always seemed interesting to me if you have a look at the size of some of the stocks out there.

    and yes.. want suggesting to give the detail. just adding a bit.
