    Happy with my 6th place! Thanks to the top guys being generous on the prize picking I got a pretty sweet scope by Trenier. More time with the Theoben and it’ll be contender. I can almost shoot it as good as my Condor. 😛

    Shot a 3 card set today. Bad storm coming so again – poor outdoor conditions – 25 mph gusts – 
    and on the first card to the right,rather than get up and move it, I struck a fig branch which deflected my pellet a weeeee bit -LOL
    but I gotta say -I’m amazed every time I shoot this rifle. Hadn’t cleaned it since before the Dade city match,which means I’ve put more than 170 pellets down the pipe without a cleaning! Also using unsorted pellets with varying weights from 15.2 grain to 16.8 grain- with no noticeable poi shifts 
    scored with the .22 cal plug —-
    747 with 37 xs 

    ‘truly an unbelievable rifle

    Awesome shooting Frank. You should get extra points for trimming the fig tree in the process 😉

    Yay, you are officially recognized on the U.S. Air Rifle Benchrest page

    http://www.usairriflebenchrest.com/category/scoreline-results/

    However I would think they would list you in the Outdoor Open Class? 
    And Mr. George would be in the Outdoor Unlimited since he had the electronic trigger?

    EDIT: 
    can somebody chime in, what is the purpose of the list? 
    I originally thought it was to list the winners from events around the country in a given time period?

    I’m a bit jealous of you guys living down in the warmer weather. Outdoor shooting year round. I’m down in my basement (20 yards) at least till April. I got some of the heavy duty official 25 meter cards and am thrilled to see the targets are considerably bigger then the ones that fit in the 8.5 x 11 sheets of paper. Maybe I’ll have half a chance when I move outdoors!
    Shot a 250 (second one) with 17x this morning. Happy with that, but I know the challenge will be in the wind. Enjoy the relative warmth down there wherever you all are.

    What grain pellet are you shooting? 
    ‘My Steyr is .22 cal- I always shoot the 18 grain JSBs in it. Has good wind resistance especially at distance 
    Allen Z set it to push them out at 880 fps

    I been shooting 16gr, tonight she liked 14.3 lubed pellets. I don’t know what AZ tuned it to.. The BSA barrel isn’t picky

    The Steyr will shoot the !5 grainers as well, but I find that the rifle really does well with the 18s especially out to 100 yards.
    also holds its own in the 25 meter —
    I tried lubricating years ago. Never really saw a difference in performance though?
    just messy fingers –
    what lube do you use?
