    Today after going to church, out to eat, the grocery and working on the hot rod I decided to shoot my 34. The weather hasn’t cooperated much for shooting this winter, just a few shots at starlings and my steel rabbit. So late this afternoon before dark I set up a target at 50 yards. I started using the 1 & 1/2 mil hold over from Chairgun Pro, it’s close but 2 mil dots is real close.

    The rifle is a RWS 34 in .177 with a Vortek full power spring kit, Hawke Vantage 3-12 X 44 with a 1/2 mil reticle, shooting straight from the tin H&N FTT pellets.

    I didn’t have time to shoot much and these aren’t great groups but it shows promise. The group outlined by the magic marker were me playing with hold overs. The shots at the bottom of the target were with the rifle resting on a front bag at different points on the fore end. The first row of dots were shot off the bag with my hand between it and the stock, no rear bag. Five shot groups.

    Is it weird that the first thing I thought of when I saw your photo was, “He needs a new tape measure”?

    That’s funny. I have three 25′ tape measures and two 6′ folding rules in the shop and most of the time if I’m measuring less than 12″ I grab that old broken rule. lol
