Highlights of Rule/Guideline Changes and Additions for 2009

1) Hunter Division

a) Adjustable butt pad must be in the neutral position, vertically. This is added to the existing rule under Classifications in Hunter Division, section E.

b) The maximum magnification on the scope has been changed to sixteen times from the former fifteen times. Rule under Classifications in Hunter Division, section C.

c) The use of monopods has been added with the following restrictions. Monopods will not be attached to the rifle in any way nor will they be driven into the ground. They will have a restricted surface size on the top, to rest the rifle on. The base will be circular and have a maximum and minimum diameter. The monopod will not have any additional attachments to it that give lateral or longitudinal support to the rifle or shooter. Rule under Classifications in Hunter Division, section K.

2) Limited Classes

a) The limited subclasses will cease to exist and be replaced by an International Division. The Division will have PCP and Piston classes and the rules of the World Field Target Federation (WFTF) will be followed. The name changes and the power limit of 12 ft/lb is the only real change in rules from the Limited Subclasses. Rule in Classification section.

3) Unlimited PCP and Piston Divisions

a) There will now be an Open Division with PCP and Piston Classes. There are no rule changes, just a renaming as Open Division. Rule in Classification section.

4) All Divisions

a) The shooting area will be expanded left and right by width of shooting box if terrain allows. Torso must be behind the front of the shooting pad, but not necessarily on it.
This will be part of the Match Guidelines for match directors.

b) Timers will be used at the Canadian Nationals. One minute per shot plus one minute preparation will be the formula used. Seven minutes would be allowed for a typical three target, six shot lane. Timers start when the shooter enters the lane, as outlined by the match directors. This will be written into the rules in section 11.

c) A chart has been created that will suggest the maximum distances that particular size hit zones should be placed at during a CAFTA match. This will be in the Match Guidelines for match directors.

On behalf of the single shot springers amongst us, can I do laser ranging whilst the other shooter is in the lane? Can I enter the lane with my rifle loaded/on safe/muzzle downrange? There is a definite time disadvantage for an under/side lever shooter who must sit up between shots to recock their rifle, then go prone again to shoot...
P.S. I can hear all the "wah wah wah cry baby" comments already! Laughing

Sorry, but the only time a rifle may be loaded is when you are on the firing line, no exceptions.

It is possible for you to use a laser to rangefind targets as long as any Hunter Division shooters cannot see any notes you take. There is no real need to worry too much about the time limit, as even with rifles like the Wiscombe, which may need two or three strokes to set the sear, the time limit is very generous.
