Today I had access to 20 and 30 yd indoor shooting range at farm (by courtesy of Newlife), so I took a chance to complete 20 yd challenge with my HW-35 (sub 500 fps), pellets AA Field Target.
This is the photo I took at place (signed by witness "newlife"), inner circle has a dime size exactly.
First and biggest group circled by a dime.

After this I decided to proceed to 30 yd and it worked quite well until group no.4 which was opened up and looked like fail to me.
So we continued to shoot at this page just for fun.
At home I tried to circle the groups and group no.4 just touch the lines.
Looks very promising that my HW-35 is able to do this and I will try to complete 30 yd challenge next time!
This is the scan of failed 30 yd part of the paper

Thank you, guys!
Yes, every target has 5 shots :shock:

It was my first experience of shooting rested farther than 10 yd and I must say it helps to know your airgun behavior much better.
Unlike FT shoot (which is also big fun!), here you have feedback for each shot and understand better importance of consistent hold and trigger job.

Congratulations, that's great shooting. Perhaps it's a good thing I don't have the space to try 20 and 30 yards and embarrass myself! :)

[edit - What do you use for a rest? ]

It's interesting what you said about FT. The moment I start missing targets I get frustrated because I don't know where the pellets are going and I get an urge to shoot paper again and "sort things out". I think I'd probably suck at FT!

Well VM that is most excellent shooting. Too bad you have already earned 2 plinker gifts (good for me though!).

I use a "group therapy" LOL
with adjustable lift to set comfortable height. Shooting was done from folding picnic table.
I always put my left hand on shooting bag and rifle on my hand, loose hold.

That's some fine shooting there mate! I like your 3 tight groups in the 30 yard challenge.
