Here’s the results of shooting today. This page was shot during the AR15 chaos. All pellets were weighed from a tin of 18.1gr JSB Jumbo Heavy Diablo’s. Weights are in grams. With each new weight of pellet, the gun was refilled to 230-240 bar.

Row
1.  1.16g
2.  1.16g
3. 1.17g (Only had enough pellets of this weight for one row of shooting)
4.  1.18g
5.  1.18g
6.  1.16g
7.  1.18g
8.  Randomly picked straight out of the tin

I stared to write the beginning and ending gun pressure after each magazine, but somehow I screwed things up. So, disregard the pressures I have written. Honestly, I’m not sure if this is even significant information?

Can anything be gleamed from today’s shooting? Due to movement from myself, the benchrest instability, and AR15 concussion, a lot of the shooting was like “guess work” when to pull the trigger. 

How does one approach testing?

On a side-note, I ordered a benchrest today. I talked to the owner of the range, and showed him a cardboard cutout of the footprint for the rest. It’s clearly too large for the shooting table, but he said they would “get it figured out”.
