Richard glad you are getting some trigger time and starting to proceed with testing. It nice to see your wife enjoying herself too. I would say to really test your rifles accuracy you need to set your target out further and shoot some actual groups. Now for me I do mostly hunting and pesting with my air rifle. For example for shooting rats I will select a pellet that I think will do a good job killing the rats. Then shoot it at the maximum yardage I expect to shoot say 35 yards and see if the accuracy holds up. For shooting grey tree squirrels I will do the same testing but set the target up at 50 yards.
