    'The competition is designed for production PCP and pneumatic air rifles that is area in their unmodified, production state.'

    This reads like a Chinglish manual.
    Glad they are limiting the distance to 80m though, my el cheapo 3-9 scope runs out of mildot holdover beyond 90m where all becomes a guesstimation affair.

    4.1. The competition is designed for production PCP and pneumatic air rifles that is area in their unmodified, production state.

    4.3. Muzzle-energy /velocity are limited to: 1085 ft/sec for 4.5mm and 1000 ft/sec for 5.5mm.

    Technically this means that you can rock up with a 75 ft.lb rifle (JSB Exact Jumbo Beasts 33.956gr @ 1000fps) if it complies with clause 4.1.

    I think 4.3 should maybe limit 0.177 to 24ft.lb and 0.22 to 30ft.lb which most standard production rifles seem to be set to. Some Daystates are monsters straight off the production line.

    Agreed. Muzzle energy is unambiguous.
