1st attempt equaled it... missed the same target again! However this time it didn't go straight!

That's got to be a testament to the realism then

are you sure it went straight or was it just a shot within your average group size at that range

It went straight in real life. Think it was 37. Wind was coming off the field behind which I played for, but I guess it got pushed over beforehand by the wind coming down the range from the side. I aimed between a pellet mark just off edge of kill and one about 5-10mm over, and that's where it landed. I proceeded to dink the next one by going straight at it...

New course is brutal, I was thankful to get over 25 on the first time through.

Tell you what though, as someone who's always been a fan of horsehair reticles this tool is enough to make me want to buy a 1/2 mildot scope haha.

Thanks for putting my course on Brian.

Finished with 38 ex 40, exactly the same as doing it for real in the 'Open'class last Sunday.

The reduced wind factor you have put in the programme is just about right, since the true wind on Sunday was about 10-18mph which was higher than I would normally expect on the course

Your right Rob, target 37 went straight for me too and I aimed exactly where you did also.

[/IMG]Worked foe me first time I used it but now shoots lower than the target and right .Checked everything using IE10 Windows 7 64bit.

Anyone else having problems ?
Also shoots ok on practice but as above on game and will not put score up, or move to next target on game, can shoot as many times as I like on same target?
