    Sweet little job innit?

    Sick thing is, you could make a crude one for next to nothing.
    Take a clear empty film canister, fill it with a coloured liquid leaving just a tiny bubble in it. Duct tape it onto the rifle somewhere, mark it out with a felt tipped pen and wallah! An ACI for one hours work.

    An old skool ghetto ACI anyways.

    ...

    PS - It just has to be silver duct tape - anything else looks plank! %-6

    Oh no not another gadget :messed:

    A tin of pellets and a few hours practice on uphill and downhill shots thereby learning your rifle's trajectory will be a lot cheaper.

    Seriously though the only add on item that I have really found useful is a small spirit level to prevent canting the rifle. Canting can have a far more devastating effect on your scorecard than a few up or down shots.

    tell you what, after the league shoot on Sat, I'll try anything... Didn't think that downhills would make such a diff!

    15 degree look up at 50 metres is shortened by 1.7 meters so a click or so up or down at Leeukop should compensate. If your shooting at live targets, they'll have flown before you can do the calc and adjusts.

    I think it is more like 36 deg downhill.

    How far? 50 meters at 36degs is a 40 meter shot downhill. (So says my clino) I dont remember compensating for it when I shot last....Who pulls you back up if you slip?

    Neil,

    I understand what you say, but it doesn't alter the fact that you can learn to compensate for shots at different angles by spending some time practicing them.

    Plus it is a lot cheaper after all looking at the original link that little gadget costs ?100 and you can buy an awful lot of pellets for that sort of money.

    Brian,
    You shot half of the old course. We don't go across the road to the "up part" any more. We go down to the "river course "now and that is where the trouble starts. If you slip and fall down we will just put a memorial up with you your name beacuase we will probably not find you again Ha ha.

    I'm sure that last target on the corner lane (the one right by the river) is closer on 60-75 degrees though. I mean even if it were concrete there is no way you could walk down it.

    All good fun though.

    Might try to get Refresh to manually reset the target next trip out there.
