Diablo had their monthly informal match today. I shot with Jim C and Scott (Motorhead). I shot a couple of months ago with Scott, and my R1 in .177. Packing a 2-7X Beeman scope, range-finding was quite limited. I shot 18%. Today I had the .177 Marauder with Blaster stock and Hawke 4-16X Eclipse 30. 54%. Now I have a new set of rings to lower the scope a bit. As an aside, one target (a blue bird) had a kill zone just a hair larger than .25". Hit the bird, score zero. Hit the kill zone, 1 point (if it falls). It was great fun as just as you squeeze the trigger and send the pellet on its way, you feel a gust of wind. No benchrest. Real fun.
