If I plan to shoot my PCP .22cal at this upcoming match what is the max FPE? The shooting rules state max of 12fpe but Waterloo FT Club states max 20fpe to avoid damage to the FT targets.

Which is it?

Thanks.

As Parker said, International Division has a mandatory sub 12fpe energy level. This power level is the World Field Target Federation standard being used at all Championship matches, and the majority of countries around the World shoot at that power level. Our International Division follows the WFTF power level requirement.

Our Open Division and Hunter Division do not list a maximum power level. That level is for the local match directors to decide. Both of the Ontario clubs (Port Colborne and Waterloo) have set course limit of a maximum of 20fpe. This level is the commonly accepted level at most US matches, excluding matches where an International Division is offered at a particular club/match.

It will be up to you to decide what Division you want to shoot in, and prepare yourself and your equipment accordingly.

The CAFTA web page will give you all the details you will need to make that decision. http://www.caftahome.com/

Good luck in your preparation.
