    If in doubt, pick an edge, add a kill of windage, and hope...

    Rob, did you manage to get a picture of the 'S' reset cords?

    It just goes to prove that the conditions can make course more challenging than having loads of long targets out.

    Keep up the good work with the photos Rob, just looking at them reminds me of how bad I judged the wind at time by giving to much :( and not checking for little twigs (2nd target in the woody bit missed as clipped a twig closer to the firing point)

    Oh bugger, you didn't did you!? How embarrassing, especially as I was the one that made you get the nail scissors out at Carisbrooke :eek: . I made a point of that on the build the day before... 'We' did do a check the day before, but there could have been stuff down from the night (that's my excuse and i'm sticking to it)... speaking of sticking, 8 was... it got worse later on, free'd up, then I needed to take the grips to it again. Think it was crap being blown into it.

    The one I couldn't work out was that target in the woods... strange miss pattern high and right. Perhaps people assumed it was the full wack ( I don't actually know by the way)... but the one to the right of it was because I did measure that one to within a few foot of a stretched tape.

    The problem I had was believing what I was seeing... even when the tape and string said something else. I thought I had it sussed in the woods, definately coming from the right this time...erm nope... ok definately from the left...erm nope. They only moved 1/2 a kill at 40yds, but it was in the wrong way :D It seemed the closer ones were taking as much as some of the long ones...

    Bizzare... we shoot on the live range in the summer... it has us just as befuddled... especially when the ones in the shelter of the seeming gentle breeze go the opposite way.:eek:

    Rob not complaining at all, the twig was my mistake and number 8 was a split pellet. Yes the kill went back a bit but thats just the way it goes. I actually preferred the 1st bit as the only misses were when I gave wind (number 8 was give right edge of kill and thats were it goes:rolleyes:.

    The way I look at it is you find a good shooter that was going around at the same time as you and base your score on them. For me it was James and being only 5 behind him made my day.

    For one of our club it was a first at Christchurch and he likes it as he got 25 compared to a usual average of about 15-18

    Our other club shooter had a bad day (11 scored) and we decided to have a check over the chrono when we got back. Finally got the right battery and 10 shots of the chrono gave results of average of 774fps with +/- 5fps so that bits not the problem.

    Will be checking again on Sunday along with pellets and targets weather permitting of course. Just hope the rifle has not decided to hate JSBs and like Premiers as it used to be the other way round.

    See you all at Bisley next.

    Update:-

    Not able to check the longer distances very well due to the fact the farmer requested no club member attepmt to enter the field due to waterlogged conditions. Even his tractor was struggling.

    However did manage to get to check the windage at 20yds. Just over an inch out to the left at 20yds, so I have got the windage back to nothing and put the turret back to zero marking. Now it just needs the club memebr to leave the windage turrets alone, rather than keep adjusting them on the zeroing range.
