    Tinkering and Practice

    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 ??? HOLLY
  3. 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

    Wind and Deep woods ?

    Yes but is her tight old man . bringing her back to the sceptered isle ??? HOLLY
  11. Today brought home the problems with shooting in deep woods on a windy day . after a few lanes you start to get paranoid about what is happening on the lane you are on . in the end i kept to a rule . 1 / if you cannot detect what is happening . aim straight in the middle . 2. / if you think you have a clue . aim inside the kill to the edge you think it is . 3./ your sure you know where it is coming from . give it twice the wind you think it is . . either way , you will end up with a headache ???

    Progress ?

    New rifle ( steyr ) , new stock GC . new ideas time . in other words progress . the same old , same old will not cut it any more i have found . you can either give up or try harder . i am trying harder. searching for methods that can help me get back to where i was B H ? before hip . A grade is where i should be . the body is obviously not as good as it was . can't use the tripod effect of two feet on the deck and two elbows on the thighs any more . so how to counteract the wobble that comes with a unstable position . one of the ways is ambush the kill , within the movement . as you wobble past the kill . not good on the steyr , it needs good trigger tech . so what i came up with was to mag down to 20 mag , to shoot on , to get that steadyness . sitting on a lane on my second circuit of the course . it came to me that if 20 mag was steady , maybe 15 mag would be better still . or maybe ten mag ( i was told old tim findus . shot on 8 mag on his burris ) so nothing ventured nothing gained . i tried it . seemed to work quite well . will try it seriously tomorrow if it does not rain ???
