I've kept my match entries on the computer over the years.  There is a downside to record keeping.  For example, I can see that:

1. I last shot this match in 2015 and
2. my score has not changed since that time.  Coincidence? I think not  - there is after all a corollary to "practice makes perfect"  ;D

But the important thing is, I caught my new neighbor with a Red Ryder in his backyard, which ended up in a fun shooting session in my backyard.  Perfect weather for it!

Dennis,
That is a nice improvement, good shooting! Looks like you got the scope zeroed better as well.
I like this match and also enjoy the 50ft match because you can drop out the 2 worst fliers and the reduced wind effect helps with diagnosing the cause of the flyers.

Thanks

I think part of the problem may have been that with the new scope I had to use nearly 2 full turns of windage, and even the Hawk was bouncing a little inside.  Most of my targets had a flyer in the 7 ring every 4 or 5 shots.

Got the barrel jig out (after this target)  and bent the barrel until it is about a quarter turn on the windage.  I will make a couple more adjustments to get it a little closer. 

No new targets yet but it is not throwing flyers like it was.

Next week

Grandaughter shot my target by mistake and I shot 1 target 2 times, so I took the lower score. Not that it made much difference. Lowest score I have had in a long time but no excuses. Only had 1 day that was a decent day for shooting and it wasn't my day to be doing it.

Good to see you in here Pops,  I am glad to know that even the best can shoot the same target twice ;D
