Reply To: First target shooting with Vulcan
My ban from the range was finally over today (banned by my physician due to damaging my ears the last time I was there). I also received some MSA hearing protection, so I’m doubling up with foam now.
Something went really wacky today. The last time I was at the range, the gun was shooting really well. Today, not so much. The vast majority of pellets were either near-flyers, or flyers. I did find a lot of skirt damage in the tin, so I opened a fresh can. Same issue with them, but the skirts looked good.
Then I decided to hand-load each pellet. Low and behold, things were back to normal. I have two magazines, and both had the issue. Can anyone tell me why this is happening when everything was honky-dory just a few weeks ago? The only thing I did to the gun while on break was lube the breach o-ring with silicone.
Anyway, here’s the results of today’s cards, and I would appreciate some guidelines regarding scoring. Be gentle, I’m a complete newbie. Ignore the “2016” date. I’m senile, and still can’t get it right.
JSB Jumbo Heavy Diablo 18,1g straight out of the tin
