A2ZBen, in most AAFTA Grand Prix matches, the top over all shooter is recognised. Also at the Nationals too. Greg Sauve for instance won his choice at the Pyramid Cup last year. He won his WFTF division, and was the top scorer.

As Scott stated, at our club we only formally recognize the top shooter in each class. It really depends on what your club decides.

As far as difficulty, I started at hunter but found I was less stable with the bipod than on the bum bag and my knee. 12 power in hunter is a killer, but the lack of stability was more my issue.

So I think all classes have their detractors. If I shot in hunter with a high magnafication, it would not matter! My being unstable would still be my downfall. So it will depend on the shooters ability…IMHO
