    After a really snowy Friday and Saturday the sun came out and it was beautiful on Sunday,so I decided to take a quick walk Through the woods,as I was walking around the side of my garage I heard some nut chewing so I stopped and gave a few barks on my squirrel call to see if he would give away his position and sure enough in the distance I saw him spin around on the branch and face the other direction…he was between 50-60 yds away looking away from me giving me a nice vitals shot ,I braced against a tree and took the shot,and the light was just right so that I could see the pellet the whole way to impact through the scope,was the first time I have seen that while shooting at an animal …was cool to see the pellet arch it’s way to the aim point,anyone else ever catch that with the naked eye? I have seen it shooting at night with a light behind the pellet,but never noticed it before on game during the day.just thought it was cool

    Very nice Sisca,  supposed to be a nice day tomorrow might go for a stroll myself. 

    P.S.  Always thought the silver Impacts look best.

    “GBGUNNER”tell me about your scope mounts. I have an identical Impact.  GBGUNNER

    
The scope mounts are 30mm UTG off set high mounts,the scope I was planning to use was a MTC Viper Connect which has zero eye Relief….so my thought was to bring the scope back to my eye as much as I could for a more natural head position,  and the scope worked great,but aesthetically I did not like the way it looked (have a connect on my wildcat and love it) so I purchased a hawk sidewinder and just used the same rings, I think the Connect looks good on the wildcat,Impact  not so much,I hope you are in joying your silver impact as much as I am.

    Wow, nice gun sisca!!

    Yes, I love it when I get to see the pellet fly.  Normally happens with the sun at my back.

    Thanks!! That’s the funny thing is that the sun was at  two o’clock in relationship to the target ,more or less shooting into the sun…must have been just right….or that slow moving .30 pellet was just easier to see then the speedy .22.25 I am use too,

    Yes, I’ve seen this while out shooting prairie dogs.  It’s very fun when you have a holdover plus a windage adjustment and you can see the pellet fly.  It’s like throwing a 100yard curveball!  :)
