Really good stuff - if you could set mag at x10 and 30 yard zero that would be cool!

That's my rainy afternoon sorted. skipped the practice, allowed for shooting on 16 mag instead of 32 7 it sort of worked.

I did a 53/54 today on the same course combined with another layed out, and 94/100 on the turkeys.

If you want to shoot on a different mag, just sit closer or further away from your screen

If you want to know what it's like to shoot a springer, just punch yourself in the shoulder and violently shake your screen for every shot, and then after every 3 or 4 targets take a moment or two to question your sanity.

It appears to come up with different wind speed and direction each time played, so you cant directly compare, which is a good thing as you can play it endlessly . Very good stuff Brian. Does the apparent hit high and low also come from the Chairgun calcs?
I like the way you get the target to jump a bit from springer recoil How realistic is that for your gun?

Ah yeah - I forgot to mention - the wind speed and direction change each time you shoot the course - but they remain constant for the whole course. So you can shoot the zero range and get an idea about the wind strength and then go onto the course with the same overall wind speed and direction. The resulting wind direction will be different for each target, but that reflects the actual bearings to the targets on that course.

The York winter league course I entered from memory and the shooting line was in a straight line with targets set at angles to the shooting line. The Inters course was entered from real data and a pretty good approximation of the target bearings - it was a sort of horse shoe shaped firing line.

Yup, all the ballistic calcs for height etc all use the same equations as Chairgun does, using the GA drag tables for waisted diablo airgun pellets.

25y zero with a 10mm group (after about 8 tries!). I have no idea what my margin for error in ranging above 50y is so left it at 2y.

It looks as if it's easier sometimes than others as the wind can be mostly behind you on some tries.

Nice shooting

A margin for error of 2y is probably about right to be honest.. interestingly something this app has illustrated to me is that a 53 yard target is statistically more difficult to hit in the wind than a 55 yard target
