I don't know if I've ever tried one, I've certainly never owned one. From what I've read about them I'd say they're a very well regarded gun (with an upgraded reg) - my concern would be spare parts and servicing. Oh and they're a PCP - yuck!

I canít see this with my mega guns using good Exacts but I did experience some very odd results using 7.6 grain Bisley Long Range Gold.

Indoors or in very light breeze these grouped as good as is possible. In any sort of significant wind the groups absolutely exploded and appeared to be on the low side, though the groups were so massive that it was hard to tell by eye. What does appear true is that the flight behaviour of these pellets was very different in moving air.

Given that wind velocity is so low compared to the pelletís velocity itís hard to explain these observations.

I've updated the game this morning..

Now supports metres and yards (for our European friends)

New course added : Tecnotargets Spanish Open, with all the Tecnotargets faceplates.
This is a 52 target promotional course shot on 17/18 May this year I believe, not strictly to WFTF course guidelines, but pretty close.

Brian, I've got the feeling that the group sizes for positionals are not realistic. All the standers and kneelers are too easy and sure hit in the software, compared to the certain amount of struggling in real life.

Yeah, I think you could be right there. I've set the wobble factor to 2.25 times your normal group size for Standers and 1.5 for kneelers.

What do you reckon I should tweak it up to? - 3 for standers and 2 for kneelers? - that would effectively mean if you're averaging a 15mm group at 55 yards sitting, you'll need to be mm perfect with the wind in order to hit a 45 yard stander. For everyone else with more than a 15mm 55 yard group an element of luck will come into a stander at 45 yards (i.e. even if you get the wind perfect, you could still miss)

Well speaking for myself that would certainly be realistic!
"Could still miss"... a 45 yard stander?...

Haha - yeah me too! but I guess really since this is a wind simulation, if you get the wind perfectly right luck shouldn't come into whether you knock the target over or not. It would be a luck simulator then, and we'd all be in trouble

How about if I go to 2.65 and 1.75 and see how realistic it is then?

Or could we set out own wobble factor? After all, I'm better at standers than kneelers.
