Still need to do some reading, but suffice to say I was seeing +1000ft of DA at GP3 and had to take about 10x1/8th clicks off at GP3 at 55, but at the zenith at 30yds there was little perceptable change, suggesting the pellets were flying flatter... seemed a common trend amongst many on the plinking range.

Very similar to the effect seen in SA when travelling from the UK.

GP chrono read 10fps faster than the last GP, not sure if the same one was used.

I might have to start listing my drop for record and have a look at it when I see the next shift and see what the DA is. Thing is, with rezeros and fiddling my numbers will have changed, but in theory, the MOA drop from 30 to 55 should bear some correlation to DA, and if you can know it before getting on a course/range it might allow you to make better judgements about any other variation yoh may be seeing.

Know a shooter was also using his 47yd settings for 55 yesterday... which is what that equates to on my rig. Wonder if he was using old winter settings as well?
