The wind has been horrible the last few times I've been out to the range so I haven't even tried shooting at 100 yrds.  Thursday the 16th was suppose to be better, around 6-8 mph, so I went out hoping to shoot a NUH target.  The wind was only 6-8 mph but gusting and swirling from all directions.  My first two rounds at the bottom right Sigher Target went high.  I had forgotten how much to hold over and was using the wrong mil dots (Oops).  My practice rounds were all over the place but then the wind slowed down to about 4-6 mph and I shot a decent practice group of about 1.5" (target #1) so I tried a NUH target.  I started out good with two 10's but then the wind got me.  The sad story of all air rifle shooters.  :(

Keep at it Mike.  I sent you a PM with some thoughts and experiences with the MK2ís And JSB 25g pellets with my RW .25 cal.

I shot a very crappy 194 EBR card today with my RAW .22 HP using the ever famous JSB 25g redesigns. I know I can shoot a 220 card, someday!

Hey, a 194 would have gotten you into the top 15 in the Sportsmans Class at last years EBR and in the top 20 in the Pro Class.  I'd be happy as a clam if I could break into the 210's.  One of the guys on our air rifle team, Richie Gattenby, shot there last year and came in 7th with a 207 (Sportsmans Class).  He probably would have come in near 3rd but had a bad pellet that dropped WAY low.

Have you though of trying the 22cal JSB Beasts at 33.9gr? I am just wondering way they don't seem very popular.

I'll be out of the loop here for a few weeks. I'll post the results when I return.
I have also set up the next match(#5) to pick up where this one leaves off.

Shooting Date: 07/28/20
Shooter: Tom Boylan
Distance: Outdoor range; 100 yards
Gun: RAW HM1000x .22 caliber
Optics: Vortex 6-24X50 FFP
Ammo: JSB 25g redesigns
Wind: SE @ 1-2 mph
50/50; 1X
Group: .99" CTC
Position: Bench Rest seated; Rear Bag and Accu-Tac Bipod

Went out yesterday and shot a few NUAH cards.  Wind was light and I used the RAW for a change, after getting it back from Martin with the original .22 HP Poly barrel.  It shoots very well at 50 yards, and it also shoots well at 100 yards but I am experiencing some "spiraling" with the RDs.   I turned up the HST to about 945 FPS ( Had it at 930 FPS ) and it seemed to like a bit faster velocity.  Image 1350 ( 50/50; 1X ) is my submission for July. 

I will say that I consistently will get a flyer in a 5 shot group most of the time with the RAW.   It may be a bad pellet now and then, as I don't sort or size. I know there has been a lot written about the RDs and short and deep cavity skirts as to which is better, but it also could be the lots I am using.   To be fair, I did have a lot of other NUAH targets for July and many were decent, but I only managed one 50/50 inside the 10 ring.   If I examine the rest of those targets, there is always a flyer in the '7' or '8' ring. 

I suppose I can start looking more closely at the pellets ( I always single load vs. using the mag ); but I really don't want to spend the time sorting or sizing, so maybe I will just have to be content with not knowing when the ugly flyer rears it's head.

Good Shootin Tom.  50/50 and a sub MOA to boot.  I've heard the .22 25 grs. can handle higher velocities but wouldn't have guessed you could get them accurate at 945 fps.  Haven't done a lot of reading on the deep base/shallow base RD 25's so I have not idea which one seems to be better or if it depends on the barrel.  I've heard JSB switched to the shallow base because the skirts were easy to deform on the deep base.  It seems like to me that there are more people complaining about an accuracy drop off with the shallow base.  Two of the guys in my club are hoarding the deep base 25's they still have just for matches and using the shallow base for practice.  It may just depend on the gun and barrel.  I don't shoot 25s out of my Streamline because it's tuned to shoot sub-35 fpe for matches so I don't have any experience with them.

There is a very interesting discussion going on AGN about the JSB 25g RDs currently.  Search on Benchrest category for the EBR Target topic or PM me if you cannot find and I will send you the link or cut/paste the conversation.

Thanks!

I see I may not actually qualify for this round. I shot the target over the weekend but neglected to post until this morning and I see Marty put the close date as Sunday 8/2.

No biggie, I know Marty's out of the loop for a few days we'll see what he thinks when he dips back in.

As always (for me), the enjoyment of the act and the satisfaction with the result is more valuable than public recognition.

Agree.  Itís a great hobby and even if you have a tough day on the range ( whatever that may be for each of us); itís always enjoyable.  I enjoy the forums almost as much because of the knowledge transfer.

I'm back and have the scores posted in my original post. Glad to see we had a couple of new shooters join in. Looks like the 22s took the top spots. Good shooting everyone.

Blue ... no problem with the morning after post. You've been participating here for a long time and I have no reason to doubt you.
BTW I was out your way during my absence  and was able to shoot one of my PBs out to 900 yds up the side of a hill in Gypsum, great time.

Thanks Marty.

By the way, great timing. I'd imagine it's not as nice right now with the Pine Gulch and Grizzly Creek fires going.

Why do I always get the urge to go up to Glenwood when there's a rock slide or giant fire blocking the highway?
