  4. BFTA Grand Prix Series 2019

    BFTA Grand Prix Series 2019

    It all culminated in the last round of the GP series at Blackbrook on the 25th of August. One of the hottest days of shooting I’ve had in a long-time lead to an interesting and testing day. Not only crazy 34C heat but some gusty switching winds also added to the days drama.

    Course was a well-balanced course that suited the weather and kept you interested.

    After a long and costly series for a lot of shooters, travelling the whole country the results were finally decided.

    Did You Know...

    TILTED MOUNTS are necessary when shooting at very long distances. We generally recommend as little tilt as possible as large amounts of tilt really may have a negative impact on the quality of the sight picture. In most cases 6-9 MIL (20-30 MOA) will have no negative impact on picture quality while still providing greater available adjustment range for long-range shooting.

    To allow for the greatest available range of adjustment choose a mount with a tilt that is half of the scope’s range of elevation. For example, Schmidt & Bender 5-25×56 have a maximum elevation adjustment of 26 MIL (93 MOA,) you should, therefore, choose a mount with 13 MIL (45 MOA) in tilt. Doing so assures that you are able to adjust the sight out to very long distances.

    However, when mounted in this extreme elevation it’s common to experience optical defects such as an oval picture when shooting at close targets, etc. We, therefore, recommend that when fitting a large elevati
