Default Silhouettes - knockover + bounce back!

Any top tips for setting up knockover silhouette racks?

Testing at Salmons Leap FTC today, we came across the following propblems, ( Racks pinned to ground)

Chickens, mosy bounce back up, 4 out of 5 bouncers!

Pigs, av 1 or 2 bouncers in 5

Turkeys - (hitting them !) Occasional bouncer, perhaps 1 in 5

Rams, no bouncer as they don't fall over!
Hitting the rams dead centre knocked them over, but if the pellet struck towards the Head or other end, they did not move!

initially these were shot "out of the box".

We then adjusted the bolt on the chick, pig and turks to take up some of the slack. this improved things slightly

Rams were left along as they were not going over often anyway!

Our final mod was to grease the chickens, this seemed to slow the bounce down, got just 1 bouncer out of 5 on last effort.

So, Top tips for setting up / any know problems?
