Please can someone advise on the pros/cons of FX2000 vs AA S410?
To judge a new rifle what size groupings should one expect at 20m to use successfully in FT?
Welcome to the board Plinker.
I've heard alot of people rate the S400 above the S410 for FT. Something about single shot and not having to take the mag out between lanes.
No experience with the FX - sorry.
Should imagine pellet on pellet at 20m benchrested for both of the rifles. IMHO - I would expect at the worst, very ragged one holes at 20m for FT, but that's me.

pcp @ 20m, benched........i would expect no worse than single hole, if not the "same hole"........provided the right pellets, condition, decent scope...etc
what i like about.......
FX2000 (the ones we get here...):
big power adj range
superb local support
easy to work on/customize, mod into a target biased set-up.
what i don't like about...........
stock too shallow, sporter grip, low comb
cocking on forward stroke
bolt not in-line with barrel
nothing really.......except maybe a bit light for standers.
Welcome on board.
Both these rifles are extremely accurate at around 12Ft/lb. and @ over 50 meters. (You should be looking at longer distances in FT than 20meters.)FX is easily power ajustable for hunting but so is the S400 Extra High Power.Personal tast plays a big roll, like with so many other things in life.
