    Greenarrow, that was shot with a PCP or springer?

    I’m pretty sure this is a Springer Only challenge.

    Sorry.  I didn’t mean to spoil the party.

    You didn't spoil the party.  You proved why this is a springer challenge.  That's not a problem.  I think there is a similar challenge on one of the other forums for PCPs and it wouldn't hurt to get a target from that one and start a thread on this forum for that challenge.  Seems like my original post may have had those details, I have not looked at it in a while.

    Thanks for the target Oldspook. I like it and have been using it for tweeking some guns at my normal 18yd range.

    Today I moved out to 25 yds and shot the below target with a Walther LGU, 880 FPS using Crosman Premier Lites.

    Groups open up considerably with the added 7 yards.

    Cant compare to Pellet Master Joe Wayne but was fun.

    Welp

    I finally got around to it.  This was shot with my D48 + SWFA 6x glass.  .218" sized H&N FTTs.  This is the first time I have sat down and shot more than two or three shots at one time since I shot this ten months ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2yv_PlMMpA4&t=345

    When I picked up the rifle it was exactly as I left it last year when I put it down.    I shot the first shot at the center bottom target (which went low right) then remembered I had a sighter bull and shot one on it.  Then ran the sight up about 7 clicks (which turned out to be too much) and left about seven clicks (which seemed to be about right for the coditions).  Then I shot the rest of the shots, while twiddling the knobs a click here or there.  Clearly the twenty five year old girl still does her part when the rusty old man does his.  Never-the-less, not bad for an old man, with an old magnum springer.  Let me get my zero right and a little practice doping the wind and we can do better, she and I.

      I'll be ready for squirrel season this year.

    Decided to shoot the Ten Dimes Challenge with my new to me FWB 300s using JSB RS pellets, 25 yards from bench.  Was able to find a place free from most wind, but did have a very light head wind.  Every target is three shots even though one appears to be only two.  Last target I dropped one shot into the nickel, I think it was the last shot.

    Very nice shooting. I have a 300S bought and will hopefully can post some targets in a few weeks.

    Finally!

    I installed my drooper mount and Mueller 8-32 on the 300S yesterday afternoon. I tried to get out early before the wind got up but it caught me about half way through.

    25 yards, diablo Express 7.87gr.

    Very nice shooting Justin. The top four groups seem to be high and to the right and the remainder lower and more spread out.

    Did you adjust anything during the ordeal (I call it that as it felt like an ordeal when I was shooting the challenge?) or was it the wind.

    Gary I did make some small adjustments until the wind picked up. I was shooting under a small hill and the wind was coming from my 8 o’clock and gusting and blowing my shots down and to the left. You can see the last five groups really opened up as I used “Kentucky” windage to keep them on target.

     

    I shot another target with a heavier pellet and had it cleaned until the second shot on the last target got out. All part of the challenge of a air rifle I suppose.

    Well I traced a dime 10 X's. Colored it in black. I wouldn't be able to see that shaded circle with open sights at 25 yards. Are you guys usings scopes? If so, I'll switch from the Beeman Laser R1 .22 to my Hawke Airmax on JIPA tuned old .177 RWS 48.

    I was trying this at 30 yards open sights & wondering how you guys do it. Then I looked at the printed target & read the challenge rules. I'll try again & post picts if I can figure it out.

    James the target I posted was shot with a scope. I’ve shot it with peep sights but haven’t shot it clean ……… yet.

    Very good shooting. I tried this with open sights & hit the bullseye 3 times out of a bunch of tries. Then I reread the rules. So testing my 3 spring guns I am thinking my .22 R1 tuned by John in PA & El Gamo 300 .177, same tuner but only 6-8ftlbs depending on pellet is best at this challenge. Now I only have a cheap 4X scope on it; but that's ok as I never like shooting past 6X anyway.

    Joe, that is awesome shooting. I give you credit but I am dying to see if I could do so with your set up. Man, you probably have a ton after it but as a lefty, when I get some money, I'm hoping you have a super duper awesome one available. I figure drop 2K on a RAW, or get a master tuned AAA grade lefty FWB that shoots like a dream. If I don't get both, it'll be the FWB.

    Hey, I've dropped phones, children dropped in my tea cup. Lost your #. Whenever you can, 570-977-1149 thanks buddy.

    I know this isnt exactly the "10 dime challenge", but I wanted to toss this into the mix.   I created some incredibly small, incredibly precise targets using Cad at my office and I've been using them at my 20 yard range.

    After watching some videos online regarding tin pellets, I thought I'd "accept the challenge" with my HW30.   The challenge I presented myself with was… not only make a run of clean shots, but use a light weight TIN pellet to do it.   I wanted to show that all the hate towards light pellets is bunk, and all the hate towards tin pellets is bunk.

    Below is my target with only a 1/4" bullseye, and a couple dimes for size reference.    Say what you want about low power springers, my HW30 will give you a run for your money.

    Yes, shot 16 was a little bit of a flyer, but it's still within the 1/2" diameter circle.

    Can't wait for the new spring to get "broke in". Too proud of this. An old gun and an old man having fun. Wish the flyer had not jumped up and bit me but its all fun. I just love the challenge of shooting and been doing it for over 70 years.

    As my pastor told me one time before he went to be with The Lord– Shoot straight and give God the glory.
