    Eshowe is in Kwazulu Natal, about 150 Km North of Durban on the way to Richards Bay. An area known as part of the Battlefields. Rich in history etc.
    We have a range out behind Gratton Preparatory School, 600 meters long and 100m wide plus about 4 acres of forest, surrounded by sugar cane. It is awesome..

    Was great fun JT. See the heard of elephants on the open range in the other pics. We set it up half and half. Half forest half "prairie"(flat). Relatively shorter shots in the forest and out to 50m on the flat.

    Tomcat.Be careful when the gamo targets are tilted forward like in your pic.they have been known to not fall when struck.

    I hope you had a great shoot.

    Did you do some range specs ?

    Thanks for the heads up on that Allan. We had no problems on Sunday. Targets are still new, so working a treat, but will look out for that in the future.
    Ran out of time to measure all the target distances accurately after the shoot, but according to range finding targets were from 12m to 47m. We had planned to include a number of reducers but ran out of time to fit them. 10% were standing or kneeling shots.
    Troyer difficulty rating was over 40.

    Now how does that come about .it means nothing to me.Mr Troyer's system eludes me ?

    No reducers would indicate to me a bit of a easyer shoot
