    HFT scopes what should I buy

    Should allow laser range finders in FT then 😀

    HFT scopes what should I buy

    When I set a course if we are numbering it, I try to get the target number plates in line of sight to the target but not right by the target - as you say the plates can be a known dimension but the crisp clean edges of the printed numbers can also be used for reading blur 😉

    HFT scopes what should I buy

    Bracketing is becoming a risky business. On "standard" targets there are some fixed dimensions that can be used: - Hinge width - top of hinge up to centre of kill or to centre of string bracket - centre of kill down to centre of string bracket - kill diameter, standards seem to be 15, 20, 25, 35mm sometimes 40mm, but rare However....most clubs in my neck of the woods have sussed this and have doctored their targets, I have done lots of our club targets creating some real funky looking efforts 😁 Cover hinges, move kill on plate and concequently the the paddle, move string bracket, change kill diameter etc. I use blurr and the amount of parallax error as my main measure these days. Caveat to all the above - I never win anything, but do understand the technicalities involved 😉

    East Anglian Open - Results

    I wish all cyclists would would opt that way then I wouldn't have to worry about all those assholes on the road 😉 😉

    Anschutz quality.

    3 shots....more a cotton than a string 😁

    Anschutz quality.

    Oh yes in a proper set up, stand with butt clamp and built box for chrono (inside is parabolic sheet of 5mm steel, pellets slide down it rather than shattering)...yes it is a polish chrono, R2, when I got it the readings were the same as the outgoing one (Caldwell) the difference is the R2 never misses a shot, and have been chronoed at a shoot and again same as the R2. Chrono set up I think some obsess on chrono readings, although probably more important for FT than HFT shooters...that last 10 yards is where its at. Theory says for my set up a 20ft/s spread only produces a 4.3mm difference in POI at 45 yards.

    Anschutz quality.

    Just got my Jon H. Masterpiece and made the mistake of shooting a string over the chrono. I hate shooting over chrono's, I regularly read figures from people of a few ft/s spread and I have never had a rifle anywhere near that good, makes you feel inferior 😁. My current best ever Steyr has a spread around 12ft/s which is the best I have ever achieved. Had lots of rifles, and several chrono's. So it doesn't get in my head I occasionally put a couple over the chrono to ensure its somewhere near and legal, but shooting strings can be really demoralising, costly and use up my stock of preferred pellets. Have to say I have had rifles with 20ft/s spread that were very accurate?

    The Steyr LG is a good candidate for bull-pupping without adding kilos of laminate, the new challenge chassis would be even better with its full length top rail: https://goo.gl/photos/qAjSMsMksK7nRdHe7

    I have used the fluffy part of some adhesive backed Velcro - I suppose that's just a modern twist on felt Fit it with the cylinder fully charged, not that they "stretch" much.

    Sure Shot .

    Holly, I got a couple of those PAX barrels, would have to check the exact dimensions but the PAX direct into the Steyr chassis is sloppy fit by about 0.3mm and vibrated in mine too. I had to sleeve it up to be a snug fit which cured the vibration. Don't know which Steyr chassis you have but the later LG100 and all 110 have two screws holding the barrel, these are fitted with 5 or 6mm long grub screws, to my mind too short you can get 8mm ones in there to use all the thread for security. Worse still are the original Mannlicher chassis that have a single screw. As an experiment try a single piece of electrical PVC tape along the bottom of the barrel where it fits in the chassis see if this helps with the vibration, no good long term but may point to your vibration problem.

    Back to basics

    I went through that process with Gary Cane about 5 years ago, I visited and we talked, he measured some bits, he then produced a stock that was a thing of beauty, I went for a final fitting before it was finished during which he did a bit of fettling, he then finished it and delivered it to me. It initially did feel "nice" but as I got to learn the rifle I wanted small changes....not easy with a beutifully finished lump of laminate....I eventually fell out with it and since have always had mechanical stocks. The chances of a wood stock being absolutely right first time I think are slim, surely better for a stock to be made close to what you want but with some element of adjustment for those tweeks you learn you need as you shoot it. Now a stock with an anatomical movable thumb up grip, a cheek and butt pad adjustable in all planes and an adjustable cast that would be a thing to behold......guess what I have just got Surely having a stock you can adjust to you and your changing anatomy/style is better than you trying to adjust to a stock.

    Anschutz 9015 stock options

    Yes Jon, ignore me, as Rob says "insignificant".....we really are not worthy.

    Anschutz 9015 stock options

    Jon I was being flippant about the barrel (not like me), I would hope Anschutz fit quality barrels....I hope On the pressure gauge its more likey to have a percentage of indicated value error rather than 8barg across its range....unless at atmospheric it reads 8barg then it could be 8barg across the range....I have precision digital gauge calibrators if you want me to check it Either way 47barg to get 800ft/s is impressive.....unless you were shooting a VFG felt

    thermometers !

    No good if your phone is in your pocket, next to your nuts , do you attach your phone to your rifle I am guessing if you need to know the temperature to establish the point at which scopes "shift" then the actual temperature is not important as long as you know the device you are using to measure it is the one you used to establish shift point....could be reading 14 bananas By the way, I dont shoot FT
