Response to BobD you dont even know how much stress you just relieved

In an earlier thread, you said you were shootinng in a "HFT" match. IF you really meant an American Field Target match "Hunter Class", there is no need to get very intimate with the exact amount of poi movement at different ranges per so many clicks, since turret adjustments are not allowed in the Hunter Class. Ideally you have a multi-point reticle, and its THIS you need to become VERY familiar with, learning where to hold for each distance.

Myself and most other Hunter Class airgun method generally "zero" at the opogee of the trajectory since it allows one to hold over for any target closer or farther than the zero point and there will be a generous amount of yards before or after the zero distance that will also only need a dead on hold. No double zero, or hold under like firearms guys use.

BTW, pls don't get in the habit of calling Field Target Hunter class" "HFT", since HFT is a much different game played in UK with much different rules than what we play here in Field target Hunter class. For instance, one is not allowed to adjust ANYTHING on the scope durig the match, and NO shot may be taken from a sitting position. Simply "Hunter Class" is better.
