could not wait until next wednesday to shoot again and As Fridays conditions were forecast to be improved on Wednesday, off we Went.
Altered a couple of things and after reading back through this to see what had worked beofre, see knew it would come in handy one day, there were improvements!
Friday 12th april
Wind was still fickle, blowing a bit more constant R - L though according to range Tapes and indeed the results showed so.
Rev first up, some changes made to stock and preperation. Clean Barrel.
D5, 8 & 36 were Mega. Almost a Dop resulting from the change in preperation and conditions?
d 39/1/2 both very usuable too.
did suffer some high and low shots, but those were me pulling. Looking at the ball trigger it may be that as it seems in a different position and too far back?
However, when fully concentrating it was on the line and generally where pointed, only blown out of kill about 5 Ex 125, so results as would be hoped for in comparrison to Priest.
Has the Ostler Air stripper worked? Hard to tell yesterday but probably Yes. was not giving much wind but with no Stanadard ev2 to try next to, hard to tell for sure. Instict tells me in conditions, same as Newbury Saturday when i shot was getting about the same wind drift.
Will need to start shooting on p[ractise course / local shoots to learn for sure if I think the inmprovemet is as Big as on Priest. Will also need the right wind conditions for that!
D391/2 both Mega and alternative to D50
Trigger stil too short on 2nd stage travel but will need to drop out of stock to sort.
So, pellets sorted. Just have to run the AA pellets through but will do that again between barrel cleans.
