    For F-class you need a bbl that will run long strings between cleaning. The Douglas are very good bbls and win allot of IBS matches, but they clean between sets.
    For your needs a Benchmark will shoot all day without cleaning.

    You need to stay .5 moa or less for the full match to stay in the game, you'll need every edge you can get.
