How is that Steyr LG110 a Hunter class rifle ? It is the same rifle that the Open and WFTF shooters use .

It is more how the rifle is shot, than the actual rifle. It has the cheek piece set at one height, no adjustable knee riser, the scope is the correct power with yardages covered, no clicking of the scope was used, there is no butt hook, the power is legal and it is shot according to hunter rules.

I could shoot most of my guns in any of the three divisions, depending on how I set them up.

Yes I remember your FUDD rig .

A Pro Modified Hunter class might be a consideration . As we all know a better gun can buy a better score . It takes the fun and fair play out of hunter class for the less affluent .

I a have a couple of simple rule changes that can be implemented : 1 No side wheels allowed in Hunter.Side focus but no added side wheels.
2 No Scopes over 16 power at all in Hunter. No exceptions.
Start with that, but I'm with Peter That gun is sold NOT AS A HUNTER CLASS but as WFTF. It takes all the fun out of the class.

These are proposals that should be brought forward at the Fudd match. Our hunter class has seen all its changes through discussion at the Fudd.

Ryan's post was just put up for those who like to look at other rigs. Ryan was preparing for the Crosman match and the US hunter division. Believe me, this rig fits well into the types of rigs that are used in hunter in the US. It is a different game over there. There were 35+ shooters in the Hunter PCP class alone.

I took the ld/SS and stripped everything that makes it open class and put a $100, one inch tube, front focus scope on it. Put the Steyr piece of wood on it so it did not dig into my knee. It would be interesting to see how folks could shoot that rig if they gave it a try. An S400 or any standard stock rifle would have been far easier and more comfortable to shoot.

If you were able to check back through the results, you will find that I switch rifles and divisions. Have shot a FWB300 a few times and even a pistol one year. Always a fun day, the Fudd and the only time I shoot Hunter.

Hi guys,
That rifle was purpose built to kick American ass. (Too bad i had a crappy day at Crosman!) I looked at both US and Canadian FT rules when i started to put it all together. I don't disagree with you Chris, or Peter, it's not a rifle that i would carry into the woods - it weighs 21 lbs! It's built to win matches, and i assure you it slides within the hunter rules on both sides of the border. I do agree with Chris' suggestion, that no sidewheels are allowed. (Even without yardage markings showing, i have a good idea of what the range is based on the position of the tip of the wheel, not that i refer to it - i do have a mildot measuring chart on my rifle.) And i respectfully disagree with Peter, a better rifle does not buy a better score. I have rifles that are far less expensive than my Steyr that still group 1/2" at 55 yards.

Hope to see you at the Fudd!
Ryan
