    Tinkering and Practice

    All I can say at least I did not get bitten today by whatever bit me Thursday. Back of my right hand is still slightly swollen. Thinking it might have been a horse fly cause it was a big bugfer that I saw on the knuckles. 3 doses of insect repellent with deet kept them clear, had to respray as sweating like in a sauna in the woods. 22 lanes out at the moment scope measured ranges and got 50+ x8 45+ x6 40+ x2 35+ x4 25+ x10 10+ x4 Plus 6 standers and 4 keepers. Results were 7 dropped, missed 3 standers and 2 45+ and 2 50+ targets through wind, split equally for not giving enough and to much. Quite difficult to read today as even some of those I got were close to missing.

    Yes lane one or woody's end as i call it . we have another bitch shot called robs end . . course is starting to be interesting . needs tweaking of course . some digging required to level a couple of lanes and some tree roots have appeared . so will have to alter those . well done to andy putting out the longer one on the new lane . he had to brave some parts of the swamp to get it there but well worth it as it is a deceiver . at least for range ,. we took the lane standing . did i mention i hit it first time ? no well i did . the new strap does work on the standers . it does not make me more accurate . but it allows me more time in the aim before i have to come down . ready for bisley ? dunno . but go we will ???

    More tinkering done. Firstly shot the course with one target moved from the lane put in on Thursday. Missed 5 out of the first 6 lanes. Double dinked the first lane and the 3th(standers) and also missed the 2 targrt on new lane. The other 2 misses were another sander and the next 42yd one, first me second not enough wind. After tea changed the new lane from a 25 reducer with a full size and them to kneeling lane. Reducer moved on a few lanes. Also tweaked another lane by moving one target. Had a quick go and this moved target seems to take a bit more wind. Anyway good practice so feeling ready for Bisley.
  6. Well advantage was looked for but was found mostly in standers . if i was able to use my shooting jacket . then it is possible the sling would earn it's money . as it is in this heat , no shooting jacket . . so at the mo . good for carrying it and standers . ahh well ??? HOLLY

    Unfortunately their idea of help8ng out is to grab some saws and go prune some trees, any trees, no matter. Not welcome at ETL...

    I didn’t use the GC 2002 for the clearance, that was the blue 2002 in the standard stock with my first x40 comp. Still at least I’m in the 40 Club, not quite as good as the 50 Club, now that is exclusive with Daz as the most recent invite, No Rock Chimps, so sorry Holls but your name isn’t on the list.
  12. OK , sling stud and rail stud fitted today . new bisley sling turned up too . so tomorrow . we will see if i can just get that small amount of stability more to help my sitters . fingers crossed brothers on the slug ??? HOLLY

    Very true, though Ian does a superb job with his spreadsheets. The shot analysis he did for the SEFTA GP at Springfield was superb.

    I would agree with you except there was 10+years between selling said 2002 and buying a Steyr, not the FTP. That disaster was yet to happen. Aside from that the stock was made for a long-armed freak who can bench car engines for a laugh. I am neither, so the stock simply was too big and too heavy...👍
