    Hi All,
    Hope everyone is well and enjoyed Newbury - was an enjoyable day and lovely weather although I wasn't expecting to see heat haze in February! Thanks to the Newbury team for putting on a great course.

    ha yes. first time looking through Marchy at heat haze - need to change what I'm trying to focus on I think! I'm definitely blaming kit/heat for my scores on the day! Think they're numbers 24 and 65 respectively ;)

    Due to a lack of brain power ( the wife has it ) i kept trying to range on 40 mag on the lupe . when what i should have done was to mag down to 30 , to get rid of a lot of the wobble in the haze . but it was nice to be warm ??? HOLLY

    Lol. Maybe ask to borrow some next time!
    So does that mag actually help with heat haze?? Will be worth trying if it does.

    Yes I was the same - too nice a day to be concentrating: I think I was expecting the targets to just fall over when I looked at them. My Jedi powers obviously were sat at home with the gloves and hat...

    It was about three quarters around before i tried going down the mag . that worked quite well . after that it was just the nut behind the trigger that caused any misses . hey ho . anyway Mr Privett has promised no targets passed 35 yards for the buccs . so all good /?? HOLLY

    Never dropped mine off 60x for the sitters. I find that having it on high allows you yo see the flow of the haze behind the target which gives you a good feel of what's happening down range. With high mag you can see that much easier if there's nothing behind the target. Lanes 1-10 had some swapping breeze and windicator was useless, I was out on a couple completely the opposite way to it at times. Perhaps if i'd had combined that mag with reading a target number or keeping inside an 18 yd stander I might have had a 1/2 decent score. Nevermind...

    I had a few that went high so the temperature and knowing what marchy does cost me a couple, but even when I had that adjusted the heat haze made it difficult to range - I think that was more of a problem than the twitchy wind tbh.

    Heat haze is quite a fashionable excuse these days:rolleyes:.

    You need 80 mag to see straight through it:cool:.

    I was only pulling her leg, holly;)...

    The haze was there on Sunday.
    I used 50-60 mag, didn't struggle with the haze on the day though, i could still make out the targets just about snapping in.
