today |?? i couldnt hit one, well i did but not the one i was aiming at. after about 15 mins it started to come and i was hitting them again. does it take everyone a good few shots to settle down or is it just me?
problem is i want to go out hunting, but with the misses i had today i need alot more practice to hit the target first time or i just wont bother....

Get to 20 yards and put up a target. It could be a bit of old wallpaper and draw a 90° line vertical and horizontal approximately through the centre. Line up your scope exactly with the lines on the target and just see where your first shot goes. Do subsequent shots and see if your point of impact changes. If it does you have got a problem with velocities and the charge that is coming. Initially from your gun – – I don't know if it's a pre-charged or not. It's a cheap and cheerful way of checking things out, it's also an extremely good way of zeroing in a scope if you've got a rifle clamp.

Hi plotter you don't say what gun your using springer / PCP 177 / 22 and power are you some ware near the legal limit? all these things can have a bearing on distance kills.
