I got a chance to get out today for some target shooting and had a great meal with family!!
Brought my camera and took some shots of the day
My main goal today was setting up targets at 14.2 yrds and 36 yrds (my close and far zero points) and to try some groups at 50 yards
The rifle used was my HW97KT and a mix of pellets (JSB Exacts RS, H&N FTT 5.54, RWS Superdomes)
The FTTs do 725 fps
Heres some shots
The Magnetic Ducks are set out at exactly 10 yards for the kids to hit

Here the backside of my targets stands, pellets don't make it through the 4 folded denim pant legs
Image

The furthest a pellet has gone thru is 3 layers
Image

Im very pleased with this out of my PAL springer at 50 yards on a VERY windy day!!
These targets are both using H&N FTT 5.54
I was holding 3 dots to the right and once I got the windage right, I was hitting the Shoot and Sees consistantly
Image

Another 50 yard group in very strong right to left winds
On this one I held on the centre everytime and tried to see how the wind was carrying the pellets

Sounds like a great day - I'm envious :) I really like the stock on the thumbhole 97, I think it makes for a lovely looking rifle. Were the kids shooting the 97 or something else? Can't imagine the ducks would survive that sort of power for long.

Yeah the 97 destroys the ducks, they were using the Alecto!
Always fun to get outside with my nieces and nephew

The thumbhole stock is very nice, it forces you to use the exact same grip every time and probably helps with consitency
