Field Target (FT) shooting has transformed out of all recognition, into the flagship sport we see today. Today’s enthusiasts come bristling with technology. Pin accurate, match standard pneumatics rule in this hi-tech world; yet specialised telescopic sights have become ever more sophisticated, and necessary, if good scores are to be achieved.
Where FT differs from other disciplines is in the fact that shooters are allowed to use the scope to rangefind. This is done by adjusting the parallax until the image becomes clear. The range is then read off at the point where absolute clarity is achieved. High magnification is favoured, since it creates a shallow depth of field, and accentuates the difference between distances. For example, the image may snap in sharp at 45yds, yet become blurred just a couple of yards after. Top exponents can regularly read ranges to within a yard or so, and the ability to do so is now all part of the sport.
