I was happy to only have to drive for 3.5 hours to the event from my place.There were about 130 BR shooters and only 27 would make through to the finals. It was hell getting to grips with the wind during the qualifying rounds for me, however the hired guns did quit well. Anyway, I managed to squeak in to the finals and had a good long think, over night, about my wind strategy.
It was explained to me the way the top shooters would deal with the wind was by shooting huge numbers of sighters. In fact the man next to me literally shot 100 pellets at the sighters! They all had bottled guns and air tanks ready for refills not to mention many, extra large magazines.
To get my AAs510 to shoot 34g pellets at 925fps I could only get 20 shots per fill. As it turned out with my new wind strategy I only needed 5 sighters to know I had it figured out. Most of my shots were 8s, 9s and 10s but 2 shots were unexplained fliers scoring only a 6 and 5 but I'm sure the others had their own.
As it turned out I beat all but 4. I scored 215/250 just one short of Matt Dubber's score who's celebrities scalp I would have liked to own.

Well done sir :) . I saw the first four were using .30 cal guns vs yours in .25, do you think that had an influence on the score (wind vs projectile weight)?

Thank you. As for pellet weight vs wind drift I refer you to Bob (rsterne) article.
https://hardairmagazine.com/ham-columns ... o-pellets/
Basically it's the projectiles BC that affects it's wind drift the most. The Jsb 33.95g .25 pellet has a slightly better BC than the 44g .30 cal pellet.
There's more to it than just weight like many people think.

Due to a clerical error it turns out I do own Dubber's scalp :D

Congratulations Ed! Great shooting! Beating out Matt is indeed something to be proud of, and to remember,as well as getting up there with all those fx guns. A big congrats to you! The $1000 is a nice bonus I'm sure!
Cheers,
Wes
