Following comment is from Mark.
“Hope all is well, just wanted to update you that on last weekend I competed in the field target world champs in Italy.. I managed to finish 4th overall in what was the toughest conditions I’ve ever shot in. The venue was held in a freshly cut crop field with now cover in 35C+ (95+ degrees Fahrenheit) heat.. Also team Wales won the team event. So overall a great result. The 10-60×56 High Master Scope performed how I’d hoped and was spot on. As previously found out over 30C it under ranged 2 yards at 55 yards which is phenomenal. It stayed 2 yards under ranging throughout the 3 days of competition in that heat which made my life easier.. Many shooters struggled massively and didn’t know how far out their scopes were in the end..
I made some simple mistakes myself on day 1 and was fighting to get back into it. Luckily I had the highest score on day 2 with 43 out of 50. The winner Jose Redondo of Spain had top score on day 1 and day 3. Has to be said he was in great form.. No one could get close to him so to take him on day 2 was a massive achievement..”
