Submission for upgrade
« on: June 07, 2022, 12:30:12 AM »
Still using the .22 Avenger, but switched to a different scope, and more importantly, tried some different pellet types, and groups are getting better.  I did a 10-shot group under 3" a few days ago, so I knew an NUAH upgrade was likely... 

Fantastic wind conditions.  Scope was at the edge of windage adjustment, but thankfully holding zero just fine.  So, rather than waste the great wind conditions fiddling even more with the scope,  I chose to aim above and to the left of the fuzzy grey blob that would say "100yd 4 MOA" if I could actually read it. 

Do the rules permit drawing a hi-lighter colored POA anywhere needed on the target face?

101 Yards
Wind 0-2mph from S (L to R)
.22 AV Avenger / Tasco 6-24x40 scope (20x)
AA Diabolo Field Heavy 18 gr 5.52mm
1.25" ctc
Bench / F + R Bags

This is as far as (or further than!) I had ultimately hoped to get in NUAH, but maybe this Avenger can squeeze out a Master if I keep at it... 
Range and bench is the same, gun is the same (except scope change.) Do I need to resubmit those photos?

Thanks, ER00z!  Looks like we're neck-and-neck for Master :) 

I want to keep at it, but weather here just went unseasonably hot, with the usual humidity to boot...  I am only so dedicated/crazy, lol.  89 / feels like 103... at sunset, yikes!
