pops76-- Don
jumper
FWB 124
AA 8.4
Aimsport scope
Rested F & R
188-3X
The heat index today was only 109 so I thought that if I was going to get a target in I had better do it before the actual temp by the weekend is supposed to be 106 with an index of 115. So, as a friend of mine always said-- there it is if you like it- there it is if you don't. Thank The Lord that I could still do Ok and had fun doing it.

Nice shooting, Pops, beat me with a springer!!!

CVLife 3-9x40 (9x)
Bench / Bags F & R
184-2X

I spent some time testing pellets at this specific range and...it likes a lot of pellets, but the H&N FTT I've been using at 27 yards edged out all the others at 50 feet as well.  A while back I did velocity/FPE testing on a few pellet types, and the FTT was by far squeezing the most FPE out of the gun, which may help explain why it does better at "long range" than the rest...
