    Here is a link to a shot string. This was with 20 cal JSB Exacts 13.2grain. There were 100 real consistent shots between 765 and 775.  I did a total of 166 shots

    David that is a huge shot string. How big is your tank. 100 consistent shots …..that’s outstanding. David do you have any pictures of your shot placement on target with your rifle?

    I don’t know the size of the tank.  The trouble is knowing exactly what portion of that tube is tank.  When I was shooting the shot string, I was not aiming at a target.  I was just loading and shooting and recording the velocity.  I just kept shooting until the power eventually started to drop off.  It took a while.

    Richard,
    I am not a serious Field Target competitor.  In fact, when I bought the USFT Hunter, I never planned on shooting FT.  I have never sorted pellets.  I am not steady enough for it to improve my shooting.  The main challenge to shooting Hunter Class FT is ranging.  That is especially true with my 20 caliber.  In Hunter Class you can only run your scope at 12X and at that setting I cannot range with the AO past 35 yards.  But there is 2 3/4″ inches of drop between 35 yards and 55 yards with a 35 yard zero.

    David…. I’m like you have trouble ranging. When I was in 3d archery I had the same problem. I shot well but the range finding end of it hurt my score. I got into target archery and that was where i did well. I didn’t have to range find or like others…. use there scopes to bracket the targets to learn the ranges. Bracketing was …kind of a grey area that was illegal but was used.
    Thanks I like hearing about other people shooting tips and interesting stories.
