Have to say so far i have to take my hat off for Holly in his determination to stay away from the best.
no, not an Njr. after I whooped him in the 2010 season he went and got one last year but could not handle it.

However, after another humilating Gp season loss to ME baaa.gif Its only a matter of time till he is has an Ostler ev2 and then, maybe then he would be serious competion.

well it was another hard day at the office , or should i say at the zero range down at Springfierld arc . scope bolted on , barrel cleaned . a tin of 7.9s ready . and onto the chrono , 801 FPS . that will do nicely . down to the zero range and with a bit of help from dave lillywhite i was soon getting some good groups at 35 yards . . marked up the sidewheel and top turret ( needs a bigger turret ) and shot some close ones . little bit off due to a bit of breeze on the 35 yarder . soon sorted and checked out to 55 yards . not bad for a quick effort , but i found after a couple of hours on the rifle that the shots were going a bit high . i think maybe because the barrel has leaded up a bit and slightly changed the zero . will see if it holds that zero tomorrow . the scope went well . lupe clear and easy to use .but i would not go back to one . the 35 mag comp X is much easier to use . got to see how the missus gets on with my settings and maybe go over to numbers on the wheel and turret ???

Some good , some bad today as ever . the good bit was the rifle held zero , the bad bit was bob turned up with the old stock and we changed it over . how is that bad , well it meant dropping the lifters off the scope cos the new old stock has not got an adjustable cheek piece . . rezero .all this meant that i could not practice as i hoped for the showdown . oh well . still i found out that the rifle is not struck on to much cleaning , as the day wore on it got better to the point where off the bench it was hitting pellets marks at 50 yards with the 7.9s . plus with the new stock and daystate alloy lifter underneath . it was easier for the wife sitting to get to grips with it . the scope needs another sunshade , to much glare . probably a bigger top turret . but all in all it is getting there ???

I have fitted a rowen eng adjustable muzzle brake i borrowed off phil down the club to see if it makes any difference to the groups tomorrow . i like air strippers , but not cos they strip air . but because they can by changing the vibrations of the barrel . make a good barrel a bit better . what they cannot do is to make a bad barrel any better . will report back ???
