    SEFTA WL Round 6 - 13th January....

    Yes it was a tad windy today. I was happy with my 31 which was better than last weeks efforts with less wind. I found the wind to be predidictable which helped a bit

    SEFTA WL Round 5 at Springfield...👍

    Yes but we’ve got our new secret weapon. After coming out of retirement he’s putting in some very decent scores. I think he’s looking to get his name on the Kent open shield again

    The Pellets ?

    Those are the same as the ones Ron at our club had the other week. He gave grandad a few to try in his 800. They looked well made but the skirts where thicker than average.

    What did you get for Christmas .

    I don’t understand how anyone can shoot them. Just line them up with a pencil. Easy!

    Big bad Dave might be staging a come-back...

    FTP900? You’d have to have had a labotomy to even go there when a 9015 is only £100 dearer. I know they’re cheaper secondhand but that proves my point

    Be good to see him again. Last I saw him was when Springfield had the ground at the koi farm

    So...revisited heavies today.

    I don’t use chairgun anymore too fiddly. I use this one. http://www.airguns.net/trajectory.php Ive found the most important thing to get right is the scope height,get that spot on and it’s accurate. All my ranges are spot on,the only misses I got was wind and where they did land was spot on in elivation.

    What you need is Graham’s labradoodle to save time.

    The heavies definitely don’t fly like the heavies of yesteryear. They have a high BC factor for .177 somewhere in the region of 0.032 so they will fly flatter than the old barracudas.

    So....round 4 of the Winter League at ETL

    Wardy made me laugh. He asked Colin how did he do and when he told him,wardy said “Come on. What did you really get?” 😂😂

    Was it SEFTA that wanted chop squad banned?

    So...revisited heavies today.

    That’s what I found when I tested them a couple of years ago. Very accurate pellets and seemed very predictable around the 35-40 yard mark. Not a lot of difference at longer ranges than 8.4’s and no noticeable advantage regarding wind either. My gun runs around 11.2 ft1b with 8.4’s but these pushed it to 12.3 ft1b as I weren’t gonna use them I didn’t adjust power. Excellent pellets though and really well made. I shot round with Andraos he was using them and he had about 4 splits and they all went over. Range finding has to be spot on though.

    Grades ?

    If you can’t kneel how are you expected to greet Colin the next time you see him
