I had the .177cal Optimus out again for some benchrest shooting. Today my 8 group average was 1.14" ctc (5 shot groups) at 50 yards. I have to work a bit harder to get the inch average. The mild wind was still annoying and I had to wait for calm times to shoot.

I forgot to post the targets for the Optimus. Here are the 8 targets shot from a benchrest from 50 yards. The 8.64gr H&N FTT pellet was used for all targets.

I have one of those Canadian detuned versions that was bumped to 630fps and also a full power version from the USA. Canadian Tire will likely have the detuned version on sale soon. They usually drop the price to around $150.

That looks like a great set up. The umbrella is awesome. 50 yds!

I’m going to take mine outside tomorrow at 30m. I had the Optimus and Fusion out last weekend. I couldn’t get the Optimus to settle down, the Fusion seemed to have longer legs. So lots of work to do

I had the Optimus Prime out for some 50 yard bench shooting this afternoon. There was a slight annoying wind that wouldn't go away for most of the shooting. I did manage some nice groups during calm periods but most groups I just tried to shoot when the wind died down for enough time to squeeze a shot or two. It doesn't look like I'll be getting the desired 1.0" average.

1.30, 1.30, 1.31, 1.35, 1.59, 1.01, 0.72, 1.26, 1.35, 1.27 --- Ave = 1.25" ctc

Looking good, at 50! I haven't been outside for a few days. Tomorrow for sure, 30m, maybe 40. It's starting to rain here.
