    New Scope

    Tried the prototype JH had last year and if production models are the same will be a very welcome addition, snapped in and out well very repeatable

    Steve, you know that even with the T50 I'm shooting at 10 mag & using holdover well, that is to say I have been, but those of you who are advocating me to go 'high mag' will be seeing me try it during the summer - you might even hear clicks

    Mmm, 10 metres to infinity, just hope that if they become popular, course setters don't start putting 15mm kills at 10-10.5 yards

    Weird as you'd think they would have announced something?

    Well Ive seen the new Falcon x50 moa200 reticle boxes stacked high ( whether there is anything in them is another matter ) Release to retailers must be imminent 😄

    Apparently he has been in hard training for the upcoming GP by going out on his electric bike....🤣

    360º Springfield Field Target.....

    If its light enough put it on the end of the barrel so the target, the look of disappointment on the shooters face when it doesnt fall over and the laughter from people watching can all be seen at the same time.

    So where is our hero?

    I think he may be secretly working on a 9015 Pup for Anschutz. I can see him now welding rods on to the 4K trigger to improve it.
  15. So Andy has bought a 360º video camera which effectively records in a complete sphere at the end of his magic wand. He tried it at the Club Sunday while we were shooting around and last night I finally managed to get it working with my Rift headset. I must say that the view is a bit odd in VR as the unit has a single camera on each side to capture with, so even though it's 360º there is no depth perception, so essentially it's the same as if you were viewing the scene with one eye shut. Saying that the effect is superb as you can literally turn and look in any direction completely independent of where the unit was originally pointed. This allows you to look at the shooter then look down range to the target or look upwards into the trees. Obviously the technology is in it's infancy but I think once multiple camera per side are evolved that give a true 3D depth perception then this type of filming will be incredible though the software will also have to evolve to keep file sizes manageable as currently 5 minutes at 4K is about 2.7GB. I've attached a screen dump of the view, this is flattened out as the final view is wrapped around 360º.

    So where is our hero?

    I don't think anyone here has upset him, it's just like my old Great Uncle Frank he's gone off for a paper and forgotten why he'd gone out and also the way home, it's an age thing....

    OK, who upset him? He is active on other forums 😄

    Yin Tong pellets....

    Correlation does not equate to causation.

    Yin Tong pellets....

    In defence of the 9.5gr pellets I tried it may well be that particular weight just doesn't work at the spin rate and velocity of my barrel as I've heard good things about the 8.4gr flavour.
  20. DTM

    Yin Tong pellets....

    That may be true of JSB's. But head size of the chinese pellets is much more consistent

    Yin Tong pellets....

    Which was why I put the 'rider' of "supposed" in my post - I've a couple of guns that shotgun with smaller (supposed) head sizes, '4.50' gives up to 1" at 30 yards, yet (supposed) 4.52/4.53 give tight groups - and I've a couple more that will group with 'supposed' 4.52, yet if I use 'supposed' 4.51 or 4.53 I get larger groups, so perhaps you've found that head size is nonsense, but I'll stick with the pellets that I know give the 'best' results through each of the guns that I have.

    Yin Tong pellets....

    It’s been proven time and time again. Head size is nonsense,it’s the batch that makes a difference. When you get a tin of 4.52’s and there are a mixture of anything between 4.49-4.55 it says a lot really. Best way is to just try them in your barrel.
  23. SuffolkRifle

    So where is our hero?

    Glad to hear that he's still about, must admit that I was getting worried about him & his health (never know what's round the corner do we?)
  24. SuffolkRifle

    Yin Tong pellets....

    Think some of the problem is that they're not making them to the 'normal' (supposed) head sizes of 4.51/4.52/4.53, but are sticking to the 4.49/4.50 sizes, which might well work out to 10m, but not to 50m

    Leup comp 40x on STB but at nearly sightron 45x price it can stay there

    When those Debens first came out any spare were immediately snapped up and hoarded.
