There was a banging on the Gun Box Door and i heard a voice say " Donner und Blitson . what is this englisher swinehund doing . why is the pride of germany sitting here in this box  . "  so i though better get Herman the German out and give him an airing tomorrow if it does not rain too much ??? HOLLY

Well apart from getting wet today , slipping over , getting my feet wet , yep the boots have finally given up the ghost . i did get a chance to shoot the shutz on the course . the difference between the two rifles is the trigger . gonna have to try to get the steyr one better . problem being is that  it was never a great trigger when it was a full size rifle . still needs as needs must . onwards ???

As said shutz leaking but i think it may have been the old type air arms filler . so best fittings one has arrived . so we will see what happens sunday . as i would like to shoot it for the winter league to save using the steyr in the rain and mud ??? HOLLY

Sounds like it needs a bit of TLC after being ignored for a few years?

It is called getting your ass out the door to exercise and it works . i reckon it has taken the time before i have to take another breath  and start to wobble from . 15 secs with the rifle in the aim . to 30 secs ??? HOLLY 

 

PS that does not mean you will get a hit  by the way , just that you have a better chance .

Yes your probably right dave . but suck it and see . the last time i tried em was at Avon Hawks . where they were all right ( and you kept nicking my chair ) . i ran out of em and had lots of 8.4s .  and lets be fair , Neil daniels does pretty well with a 7.9 ??? HOLLY

 

PS Top whack is 828 FPS with a 7.87 . meaning 823 after BFTA limit is applied . should be able to run at 810 FPS . at least for the winter league .

You don’t need to run them that hot, 800 is more than enough...👍

Interesting day . the final feeling over the 7.87s after all sorts of testing is that the AAs 8..4s are just a bit better . more predictable over all  . both useable . but i have 15 tins of AA . that old

shutz if it holds together will be my winter league rifle . just need to see which scope to use . pulled off some lovely shots today . ??? HOLLY

 

PS rode the mountain bike afterwards and fell off for the first time . forgot to unclip my pedals . how embarrasing . luckily nobody around .

You’ve been talking about the new website for months, what’s the delay?

At this rate it will need updating before it’s released.
