This is a synopsis of the rules which are dozens of pages just for the equipment. Here is a link to Highpower Rules book .This is the rulebook for F-Class.  Specific F-Class Rules are towards the back of the book. General Highpower rules (which F-Class fall under) are in the rest.

While F-class rifles are similar in many respects to 1000-yard Benchrest guns, the way shots are fired during the course of a match is quite different. 1K Benchrest shooters can fire all their shots in a fast string with conditions remaining relatively stable. F-classers shoot in squads of two or three. After each shot, you must wait for the target to be pulled and marked (Or in the case of electronically scored targets there is a seven second delay between shots). So, while a 1000-yard Benchrest guru like Bill Shehane might fire 10 shots in one minute (or less), a top F-classer might fire his ten shots in five minutes. Consequently, wind shifts are more likely to impact F-class shooters, so you need good wind-doping skills to be competitive. While 1K BR shooters normally produce smaller groups than F-class shooters, the gap is narrowing, with “cleans” having been shot at 1000yd targets.

AT BORDEN WE DO HAVE ONE BENCH TO SHOOT FROM AT OUR F-CLASS MATCHES FOR THOSE THAT MEDICALLY NEED THE BENCH. YOU MUST REQUEST THIS POSITION AND HAVE A MEDICAL NEED. THERE IS LIMITED SPACE SO IT’S FIRST COME FIRST SERVE, SORRY.
