we did some work on the course today .  i lost my boots ( both ) in the mud for ten mins . afterwards we shot the new lanes we had put out . i took my time setting up my stock and shooting at a 50 yarder . gotta say the control the stock gives you is spot on . ??? HOLLY

Interesting to day . in so much as it was the first day that it was not windy since i have had the rifle back in it's new stock .  anyway what i noticed was that it vibrates when firing . air cylinder and barrel . which i think is cos gary bolts the stock to the rifle very tightly . so the shock of it firing sets up that vibration . the effect seems to be the same as my shutz . insomuch as it shoots better at longer ranges and not quite so well at closer ones . now this is the opposite to what a steyr normally does . it is not so bad close in as to miss a mini kill but not pellet on pellet as you would expect . will see if i can do anything about it ???

Ok first try at a fix is to increase the rubber mounting of the barrel in the forward support . from one O ring to 4 . the thinking behind this is at least try to keep the vibrations consistent . on a finger on the barrel test , it does seem to have an effect . sunday as long as it is not silly windy will tell ???

Wife down the club today , with her steyr . so it was the first chance to compare the two barrels . HW 100 Carbine and Walther Loather .. interesting . i know i was not shooting em at the same time but i think the HW100  was slightly more accurate and slightly better on windage . not much in it . may be at 55 yards half an inch of wind for the HW100  and just on or slightly less than an inch with the WL barrel . out of 5 shots fired at the quarter inch bolts holding the targets on ( yes Rob i know you said they were bigger , well they look small at 55 yards )three hit them some where on the bolt with the HW100 . two with the WL . ( off the bench ) . not a huge amount but in FT every mill counts . so will try changing em over . ??? HOLLY

On changing em over . the vibration on my steyr seems to have gone . so although i thought the WL barrel was not touching the forward support , it must have been . more testing required on both rifles . ??? HOLLY

I see my hiatus hasn't helped with the grey cells dying off.

By my very modest reckoning that's about 346 million less than before so only a few to go before the dribbling starts again....:bore:

The only thing I've been missing lately is this forum.

Any negative ermm feedback about my recent shooting is purely coincidental.

I just thank my lucky stars I side-stepped you as you plummeted past into B or did you finally dig your nails in at C?

I like that nice Mr Evans he has a Welsh heart of gold...:)

I think it will stay B grade Col . as for GPs it will be open due to the knee not wanting to bend anymore and winter league means 8 standers . doom i am afraid. unless i can get  some of your lazer guided pellets . still .can't be bad if your still shooting . HOLLY

Young kids mate, though I did put my back out last week getting back from Thetford with the caravan.

'Put the handbrake on' I said to Nikki and she took it off on a slope...:0

I'm ok now but I was in real agony for about three days and I never suffer with a bad back.

Was getting shooting pains down my legs and getting out of bed was a joke.

My kids thought it hilarious, gits.

You must have been a boy scout with all that preparedness rubbish.

Did you get the mother-in-law back out of the gutter once your back had recovered?   :)
