My only one so far this week. I fell way behind.

Still can't truly say that I got them all completely in the black, nick'd the 6 ring at 3 o'clock but ya know what, I'll take that group any day.  I was in a rare mood. Shot great with everything I touched for a couple hours. This is the only match target I had with me though.

Weapon:   IZH 46M   
Pellet:   Beeman Wads .177   
Dist/Pos:   10m / Standing / 1 Hand   
Score   88

That is a much higher scoring group than where it impacted.  Very nice.

In analyzing your group's location, you notice 80% are right of center. The ten and low left 9 I didn't count as they are only a half pellet off the center line.  Unless you had a strong bright sun from 9 o'clock, looks like you could move it left several clicks for general purposes.*  If it were centered for max score, you'd pick up 4 points and that is only moving one pellet dia left.  But we know groups tend to be nomadic so probably 2-3 in our real world.  Still a very nice grouping.  I'm going to try to see if I can get over my tenitis today.  Just the opposite of a tractor beam.  Need to find the switch for the celestial pellet defibulator repeller or sumthin like that.

You've got the hard part down - the easy part is turning the windage knob.  Nice shootin'


*According to the manuals I've read the sun acts as a wind.  The reason for that effect is it lightens the contrast of the side nearest the sun.  By lightening the contrast (therefore less black) the eye being extremely light sensitive as to shades, will "see" a bull with a diminished diameter.  Depending on the direction a BRIGHT sun is in essence slicing off a portion of the target causing the eye to center on what it is perceiving, but off center of actual target.  Think of the moon as it wanes from full.  Not perfectly round anymore and if you were to pick the center of what you see, it would be at mid point of what is visible, not what is there which would put center out of location by half the amount of ea waning day's worth of reduction.
Gunnery, gunnery, gunnery.  Hit the target!  All else is twaddle.

Thanks Tom. My analysis was much more basic.... If center of the group hangs right next time  =>  adjust the sight  :-)
Never really thought of the Sun's impact that way but I was shooting indoor under fluorescent lights, which is normal...BUt I was a friends house and the lights have a different arrangement than on my little range.

I should add that every time I shoot a group that represents a real improvement for me, I start trying to hard to replicate it. Even though I know I'm doing it it usually takes a while to get over and some of the groups in between tend to fall apart.  I'm not touching the sight until I get over the 'trying to hard' part.

Doing some cleanup and straighten up in the garage so indulged myself in some interim recreation.  Last dad blamed shot was my third 8.  Had a shot at a 95 but 'twasn't to be.  Not an X to be found.

Izzy 46M, irons, RWS R10 match 8.2, off hand, Oly tgt.  Wind was gusting to 21 sez they and it's 94°.  Too hot too soon.

3 ea 8's
1 ea 9
6 ea 10's
Total of 93
Gunnery, gunnery, gunnery.  Hit the target!  All else is twaddle.
