    this is the mess sitting over metro —Melbourne 😬
    umbrella weather?
    It will be great to have a dedicated open Class set up- then just use this one for LV-HV
    wanted to shoot one more set- but this stuff moved in quick!
    barely got my gear back in—
    black as night now –

    CK,

    I thought the Thomas had ‘air inserts’ that moved it back from light pellets to heavy for open?

    Yes – the rifle can be changed from LV to HV simply by changing a jet screw then adjusting the rear  hammer spring -( knob)-
    also can become open class by simply switching barrels – and changing jet screw- and adjusting hammer spring. So the reality is you’d only need the one rifle —
    but I’d prefer to have a dedicated THOMAS – For open Class-with barrel in place and a dedicated scope for it —set and ready to go —-

    probably could have gotten a higher X count but because of the hour -decided to just keep shooting -not clean the barrel  or top off with air 😜——-

    she’s 11.5 lbs without scope and rings, using a light mueller scope and sport match rings, .177, 13gr FPE for HV.

    planning on Desoto on the 11th, Wife is having a procedure on the 9th so it depends if shes feeling good enough to be left home.. Closing on new house and property tomorrow so i’ll be busy moving, not much room for shooting in next 2 weeks… we’ll see

    thanks for the kudos, hope she shoots like she looks, but i think she’ll do good..

    Was a toss up today- yard work or practice shooting — 😬
    But I hadn’t shot cards in awhile so I started with the HVs and JSB 13 grain pellets -the wind started out pretty mild but started picking up about 2 hours ago.


    after shooting this set -I decided to shoot LV- with the 8 grain AAS –
    big DIFFERANCE in holdovers! Some shots poa was in the 7 ring!
    only managed the one card before – other things came up 

    lets see some cards, Guys!!
    cheers

    Here is my cards from this weekend match here in Phoenix.  I shoot a 735 29x and got 4th place in Heavy Varmint and 5th overall.  Here are my cards from the match and the scores the Orion Electronic Scoring System gave each bull.

    Average of 245 per card just does not make it at our clubs matches anymore, everyone has step up there game.
    Here is a link to the clubs web site

    Looks Good Allen ! 735 and 29 Xs ain’t to shabby! especially with switch winds  
    I know with the advancements in equipment, soon Xs will be deciding outcomes ! Getting really accurate rigs now. Maybe the 50 yard shoots will become the norm?
    I can see and inspect each of your cards, wonder what all the hoopla is about with the Orian scoring system?
    if all cards can be posted on a wailing wall and look as yours do?
    ive heard lots of stories about the Orian –

    P.S
    are some at your club shooting .22 cal rigs? With 18 grain + pellets ?

    CK you drew a good bench at the Nationals for HV!  Bench #1 is considered the best at Open Grove as it’s the most wind protected, and I believe where all the range records were set.  Team Oregon is at that bench for LV and should do very well too.
