decided to shoot at longer distances then my usual 30 yards, so today i cleared shrubs and setup a 40 yard target so i can stretch the legs of my 34, it was zeroed at 30 yards yielding dime groups consistently, 40 yards is something else for a springer :o

at first i did not adjust scope except for the objective, i determined that i had to holdover 1/2 mil-dot, then the groups started to come together, but found it hard not to use the crosshair, so after a few groups, i decided to adjust the scope, i gave it 6 clicks up and two clicks to the right which put it near center, so now i need practice as the slightest inconsistency in technique will throw the pellet off at that distance :shock: the groups fits within a quarter so i'm somewhat satisfied

PIC; the two cards above have been shot using a 1/2 mil-dot holdover, the last card is with the scope adjusted

i marked the distances using a pre-measured string, i left a 50 yard marker, so tomorrow i'll setup a target there as well, will be interesting to see 8)

cheers

Sweet Paul!
Pretty soon you'll have to buy one of those springer scope mounts that adjust for elevation!!!

i think i will still be ok at 50 yards, i'm using a droop compensator so i can play with that a little bit, i punched the numbers in the chair program, and with my zero at 40 yards it calculates a 1.5 inch drop at 50, so if i do decide to adjust the scope instead of using the mil-dots, i think i'll still be fine as the elevation turret is still at the mid-point, after all i only had to add 6 clicks to zero from 30 to 40 yards

50 yards will probably be the max i'll push the 34 with the current scope, its a Leapers 3-9x40

Love my two bug buster 3x9's too!

I was teasing about the droop compensator! But a sub-pal gun you'd need it!

and my first shots at 50 yards..........i need practice cause i know i can do better....no blame on the gun :oops: , some cards shows only 4 shots as i pulled a few, the slightest pull of the rifle will be amplified down range and throw the pellet off target

on another note, i took a few practice shots on the 40 yard range, i hadn't notice that i lined up the 50 yard target just behind, so one pellet continued and hit the hard wood pole of the 50 yard stick, imagine my surprise when i looked at the penetration at that distance, the pellet in completely embedded :shock:
