well cylinder has now gone off to Mick tromans for a quick fill .  WL barrel fitted to continue putting pellets through it . wedneday . we can run a comparison against bazzas Tsar . which he says has been shooting high of late ( say's he found the stock bolts were a little loose ) so we will see how that is going ???

Well that was an odd day out . took the GC to the club . field wet walked across . had a cuppa . got the rifle out to fill . no air cylinder . had forgot to borrow the wifes . ah well never mind . have a cuppa . left the rifle/lupe in the sun to see if the lupe would shift ? well i knew it would shift but by how much . after half an hour , i tried it and it five yards out at 55 . to be fair i set it up in the winter and it has been very good for the winter league . ok , monday lupe off . march on . while had nothing much to do i messed about in the shooting positions . gotta say the GC handles em all . even on the bench it was better . perfect fit . it is like you are part of it . ( yeah the duff part ) . if you have the dosh . do your self a favour , get one . sell something . ( the wife , your body , ) unlike that fella from belgium . your welcome to try mine ??? HOLLY

About 3 hours not too shabby. Probably take longer to get east to west in London on a week day. I’ll stick the car on cruise so no worries about cameras. Plus the cling film over the number plates lol

OK to make up for yesterdays cock up , of forgetting the air cylinder . i went today down the club in the morning for three hours . the aim was to shoot in the LW Match  barrel  ( phil say's he has roughly half a dozen of em that he got from Pax ) any way wanted to try lube on the AAs . started off dry , shot a around 80 pellets . grouping was average . discounting flyiers caused by wind changing/speeding up slowing down . half inch 5 shot groups were the norm . wind was around 5 mph . checked rifle over the chrono and a bit high at 790 . ( warmer ) turned it down to my fave . 777 fps .( just like the sound of it ) changed direction so as the wind came from the right . quite a steady 5 mph . put 50 pellets in to an empty tin , along with two drops of  napier pellet lube .. swirled em about for a couple of mins . and started shooting . all was well for around 15 shots and then they started to string up and down slightly . can't be having that . so stopped that and went back to dry pellets . strangely enough the consistency of the groups was better . to see if it would last . i fired 40 pellets off the bench at 52 yards onto a painted metal target .37 went into a half inch  .the other three ( dodgy trigger technique ) took it to an inch  . what i think was learned here is that the barrel  was cleaned a bit by the 15 shots with lube . and is now shot in enough to shoot at it's best clean . barrel cleaned spotless tonight . cylinder back shortly . march goes on top and then off to kick ass . ( as long as it is not raining ) only one thing to say . Let Her Ripppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppp ??? HOLLY:)

Been thinking , maybe two drops for 50 pellets was too much . will give it try later with one drop . mind you next up lube wise is FP 10 . will just do one drop of that on 50 pellets . can i get the groups down to a quarter of an inch on a good day ? probably not . but gotta try ??? HOLLY

 

PS best thing about FP 10 is it does not allow anything to stick in the barrel or on your fingers .

well no shoot tomorrow . got the cylinder back from mick tromans after fitting a quick fill .  so i have put the march on top of it and taken the WL barrel off to be polished and clear laquered . was gonna carbon fibre wrap it . but not enough clearance to get it into the breech area . so it looks like laquer . the barrel was a blank so not finished .???

Gary canes finest out today . first i made sure there was not a cloud in the sky ? Hmmmm yerrrrs , OK out we go . as i have the LW off to Laquer it . ( soon as it warms up a bit ) i put the  spare LG110 barrel on it . very windy today , 15 to 20 mph . 4 inches min at 55 yards . our lad with a ftp was missing the plate .. as i did not have the WL barrel to compare it is difficult to say what was what but i got the impression that the WL would have been better all round today . i have shot that barrel in very windy conditions and it did seem to me to be easier to assess the right windage to give it . but we will see ???

As has been said on here of late , everybody has a different idea of what is a good course .  the one that is out now is the first version of ours . we have tried to give a mix of targets . something for everyone . although some will see it as too easy , some as too hard . me like to have a couple of targets that are right bitches . we have three of those  at the mo . will be interesting when the weather clears up and the ground drys out so we can have a little comp to see just what is what ???
