    Hi again..... where can I buy these. I am looking for a temp guage that sticks on to the scope body.... I have seen them on other competitors rifles but do not know where to buy.

    I have seen fish tank stickers....Is this what they are.... or is there a specific place I can buy for guns.

    Similarly for the Inclinometer..... the ones I have seen on ebay seem very big and for things like scaffolding systems???

    Can you help?

    cheers

    Inclinometer ....... Aim top or bottom if kill, waste of time and money IMO

    Temp Strip ....... RS Components but you will need a trade account , simple to set up come in packs of 10.

    Hi Rich..... Yes that is what I have seen on ebay.... a bit bulky.... what do you guys use??

    I am still trying to work out from chairgun how to produce a table based on inclinations.

    This soumds Like I am a crack shot.... not true.... but every competition I have entered in Spain so far has had more high and low angled shots than normal ones?!!!

    Cheers

    That's the problem with mainland European style FT.
    It's more a circus with clowns doing yoga, testing luck with short distance reducers and steep, uncomfortably awkward high targets.

    Come to the homeland of FT and shoot the real European Cup in September, (where FT was originally born and designed) it will test your skill on long targets with wind to judge too. Tests your rangefinding and wind reading ability from a nice comfortably level sitting position, not you back muscles or flexibility!

    Well the guy I was shooting with at Villarrubio, took it to a fine art..... he would read his inclinometer and actually change his clicks by a prescribed amount.... a bloody good shooter too.... made me look silly.

    Oh well

    I know, Euskadi Open!!!! The Spanish courses are pretty good in terms of layout.

    How far away can the target be if you are shooting up at a steep angle? I guess it's not going to be a really long target in those circumstances. According to Chairgun, a 45 degree angle will still see my pellet in the KZ if I just go bottom of kill at 35 yards.

    The other thing to say is, won't you also have to change what you allow for wind if the angle of the shot is so steep? Normally a headwind can be all but ignored, but if it's coming at your pellet from below.......:lev

    Thanks again Rich...... I cannot see anywhere in chairgun where you get a table of cm/clicks v angle of inclination.

    I can see where you change to a specific angle and then read of clicks... but not a table where say 0 - 45 degrees can be displayed with the corresponding click/cm adjustments??

    Is there such a facility.

    PS... just realised I am looking at the mobile version on my ipad.... there may be more on the PC version??? does anyone know?

    Cheers

    I just went to the page that shows the POI and watched how the trajectory alters if you feed in an angle that is non-zero. I could see that bottom of kill was going to scrape in. OK I might want to be more specific as bottom of kill leaves me not much room for wind error.

    Thanks for those ideas and links..... I have seen the ACI (cosine) and they are about £70 which is a bit steep.... I am sure there is something out there.... I will keep looking.

    Thanks for all your help guys.

    Cheers
