“Yrrah”That is an excellent 100 yd target. I make it to be 25 shots in approx 1.25 in ctc.

I can’t help smiling when thinking back to 2007 when Terry Doe and Ben Taylor, two English gurus,  denigrated me for writing of the 100 yd moa groups of 5 shots I had been shooting since 2003 after Aussie Chris Thomas shot the very first in June 2002.
Terry wrote that they had only been able to shoot 3 to 4 inch groups in a warehouse using a row of candles as air current indicators!  
Shortly afterwards three young Welsh field target shooters cut a 100 yd track through some bush and one of them shot a 5 shot sub inch group with his sub 12 fpe .177 from a field target sitting position. They were kind enough to write to me thanking me for the hours I had spent trying to explain all the ins and outs of methodology and of pellet preparation  I used at the time.
 Enjoy your fine shooting! Best regards, Harry in OZ.

 


A big THANK YOU goes to you Harry! Seriously I don’t think many if any at all were really looking at pellets before you started doing your work.
