top testing day at tondu today.
Luckily Gadgets infected hands have not yet dropped off so he could come along too.
Today was final gun choice day, as apposed to more shooting pratice.
Now i dont have great faith in most rangfinders, if there is a target that is close to the limit on any of my courses it is measured with tape measure. However rangfinder are ok for rough estimates.
First off I took REV
+ no 1 Luep plus gadget + rangfinders along our recently modded practice course, gadget used his new mk4 (Ex nigel Allen / Neil Long), I used the rangfinder to check and then later went round with no 27 luep on Priest
No 1 (low - high / high - Low)
No 27 (Low - High / High - Low)
T 1 R = 39
T1 G = 42
T1 No1 = 37 / 41
T1 No 27 = 40 / 40
So what Does that mean?
Gadgets scope is pretty good. He over ranged a couple when the sun made a brief apperance so might need to take off 2.5m when sunny? His new slow range finding technique I showed him certainly seems to be paying off.
all I have to do now is stop him dipping his hands in acid
No 1 Luep is better at H - L. Got to be carefull with it not to go down past a target than back up, that leads to under ranging which is perhaps what i did twice on Sunday at gp2.
no 27 Luep however surprised me with its consistancy. Slight edge from L -H and thats how i usually use it.
So, its no 27 Luep on Priest and No 2 Stock
for the Worlds
and now matched in terms of accuaracy and aim point / use.
Much as i prefere the colours of no 1 stock, it needs more work to get it feeling as good as no 2 Stock.
After Sundays floppy arm lane with the gemini, I roughly got it where i usually use it today and did some standing practise with Priest
on the Easy Ft course.
Apart from missing the 15ml kil (@18m)l on first shot (6 edge), got it 2nd shot, I cleared the rest with some ease.Just felt better standing than no 1 stock does.
My initial testing of the John Ostler Ball trigger was somewhat scuppered by not being able to tighten the ball trigger up, it came loose about half way through session.
However I can see the advantage of the smaller ball trigger (comapred to barry taylor one) and so hopefully with a bit of re-setting up it can have a full session at the weekend @ North Petherwin.
gadget tried his out and was very hapy.
Only thing left for me then is to off set the Gemini.
