LOL Cricket , I had to get a look at your log table, Cool idea at least where your at,
Here in West Texas you find a log and slip your legs under it for a table there is a 99% chance your going to the hospital. :smilen: :smilen:
Looks like a nice wooded area your shooting in.

Lol, not a lot of things that are hostile apart from mosquitoes during the summer in these parts. The stump chair is quite nice, I will have to take a pic of me sitting and shooting in it next time so you get a proper idea of how it looks 🙂March 16, 2016 at 5:11 pm #248937doornsParticipant
Awesome gun Cricket. The area you are shooting in looks so peaceful, nobody bothering you. You can just enjoy your new gun (which looks great btw) and focus on putting pellet on pellet 🙂March 16, 2016 at 5:44 pm #248941saltwaterslickParticipantquote iride:
…yea, IF you make it to the hospital! Lots of bad critters active this time of year out your way Mike, and to a lesser degree here in the “East”… and then there’s the skeeters… we won’t even go into that and how they can adversely affect one’s ability to shoot calmly and accurately… 🙂March 16, 2016 at 7:55 pm #248961zonkParticipant
Very nice setup. What a great group you shot. Looks like Ole Villdo did a great job on your gun. You can learn a lot from Ville, wish I was closer to him. I’d drink his beer…… :18:March 16, 2016 at 8:05 pm #248965quote Zonk:
Indeed, so far he has done nothing but prove me wrong, I told him I would never doubt him again 😉
This gun as you can see from Villes groups have amazing potential, I am looking forward to the day I master this gun and can shoot it as accurately as Ville.
Oh, and spinj, if you are reading this, I tried the whole sitting with my back against a tree thingy at 54m and I cannot remember if it was 2 or 3 pellets, but they went through the EXACT same hole… shot 4 and 5 were way of :rofl:

Just measured my scope height for Strelok, it is 7,54cm or 2,97″March 16, 2016 at 10:39 pm #248976spinjParticipant
Cricket, I am keeping track of this post. Excellent job! That is some really good shooting! I know I mentioned in my article that although a proper cheek weld is good it is best to keep a very light touch on the cheek-rest of the rifle. Don’t get me wrong, if it is part of your technique, putting pressure on the cheek piece is fine as long as you exhibit the same amount of pressure each time. When implementing a cheek weld so that the entire weight of your head is resting on the cheek-piece, make sure that head placement and pressure on the cheek-piece is consistent. This should go along with the rest of the tips stated in the Accurate Shooting Tips article. This is very important: there should be absolutely no lateral pressure imparted from your weld. The weight of your head should be pressing straight down on the cheek-rest. You will know when the correct pressure is applied and your weld is spot-on when you see your scope’s reticle move only straight vertically as you line up its crosshairs to the point-of-aim. Simultaneously, there should absolutely be no pressure on the firing hand and forehand as this will counteract the force of the pressure of your cheek-weld. I stated before that shooting/ballistics is governed by phsyics. In light of this, you must understand that the motion of recoil follows the path of least resistance. Thus, you must not introduce any other pressure other than the one coming from the weight of your head.
With respect to (I believe) your post about measuring scope height, I am in the process of writing an article on using the latest Chairgun version. But I see that you are using Strelok, which I have no experience with. Anyway, one of the things I will be clarifying to eliminate the confusion of some is that of proper scope height and how to correctly obtain it with precise numbers. The link that you shared on your other post which shows how to do so by measuring it from the line of sight and as close to the muzzle as possible is not entirely correct as determined during my field tests (as mentioned in my Accurate Shooting Tips write-up, I like to put things to the test :winkn: ). There is much confusion from many shooters on which measurement to use using the method shared through the link: the one obtained when the rifle is zeroed to a particular distance or the one obtained when the scope is optically centered. I have been doing extensive testing pertaining to the ballistic information that Chairgun provides according to the inputted values entered. Stay tuned!
Cheers!March 17, 2016 at 4:27 pm #249010quote spinj:
Nice, looking forward to your findings on scope height :thumb:March 18, 2016 at 3:26 am #249065airgunwhoreParticipant
