Thanks Dillon. It was the first chance I've had where the wind was not blowing 15-20 mph! Started out with the sun right in my face, then once the sun got behind the trees where I could really see the target I was losing light quick. The target I shot before this one had two bulls, two catching the 10 ring and the one I tried to rush and pulled it in the 7 ring! lol

Nice shooting Shawn. Your not to far from an upgrade, only missed it by 0.38". I'm sure it won't be long before you get an upgrade.

Thanks Marty. Hopefully this weekend. The wind has been almost non existent all week so I loaded up yesterday and gave it a go instead mowing. I hope it stays calm for the weekend when I'll have more time.

Nice! Glad to see you got the accuracy issue resolved. So now the sun in your eyes is the new excuse?  ;D

Were you shooting JSB Kings, heavies, or the MKII’s?

Excellent shooting, if you get a chance try the 34gr MKII's. I had almost identical groups as you with my Flex shooting the Kings, I tuned the MKII's to shoot around 900-910 with 170 bar on the reg and it shrunk my average group size down to just over 1" at 100. At my home 35 yard range they make one discernible hole. I've pretty much ditched the Kings at this point.

I have been playing around with them a little, but I have a drawer full of kings! They definitely buck the wind better. Where I shoot I get crazy, swirling wind that is really hard to read some, correction, most times.  :o
