Second point, if you place a very small kill at a close distance - where high mount scopes struggle - you will get some misses and there is a risk of bounce back at 8 yards.
Even my 20 year old Njr can group pellet on pellet betwen 10 -20 yards so really its not the size of These (side shoot) kills that is a problem for shooters, its the skill of aiming. I think thats part of the thing with reducers, people are beaten by the smaller kill before the squeeze the trigger. As i said, I`d be all for some smaller kills such as the 15 ml and only wish I could get to a few Swefta shoots to have a go at your smal reducers sometime.
Both 8 & 10ml kils will be placed in lanes where i dont expect wind, so its aim and hold. Plus accurate dialing
As for bounce back, There is the same chance of bounce back if you miss a 25 or 40 ml kil at 8 yards as its the same face plate and thats not uncommon (missing that is at 8 yards.)
