Default Wrote in my diary today, just said "Bugger"

Well chaps,

Just back from Spain today and decided to do some testing on my HFT rifle as it has been a little
inconsistant to say the least. 58 Saturday and 50 Sunday at the double header with a lovely little
POI shift thrown in for good measure. All I can say is bugger!!!!

It seems to be all over the place and I cannot cure it, tried scope adjustment/mounts, pellets, fill
pressure changes and can't seem to get it right. Will strip it down to check the barrel allignment
and breech tonight to see if it is something in there causing the issue.

So I have rolled out my old faithful and will be using the older MK3 in the new stock. Just have to
pray it doesn't rain

Hee hee,

Nice one Don

Well I have fixed it, turned out the barrel was moving in the breech. Resecured the barrel and
re-zeroed. Bob on now and consistant as you like.

Will be testing all this week and hopefully have it ready for Saturday.
