If all goes well I will at last leave for home tomorrow and get to hold my new aquired rifle/hobby/postponing of buying a new car with probably another year.
I've read up alot on zeroing a scope and would just like to ask if I understand the following correctly. According to chair gun shooting the Jsb 18.13g with the condor at approximately 950ft/s the rifle should zero at 20 yards and far zero at 40 yards with a flat spread inbetween of around 0.6cm POI variable inbetween. If I move the far zero to 50 yards the spread seems to move to up to 1.9cm variable at the POI.
I understand how the projectile comes through the scope twice due to the drop in the projectile, the scope in theory pointing down and the rifle up, but can a far zero of 10 yards more make such a big difference with a BC of 0.027?
Would I be correct in saying that for the speed, weight of projectile and so forth my zero distances of 20-40 yards would be the best for this setup? If set up like that it would mean a 1mil dot hold over at 60 yards. Doubt I'll be shooting that far anytime soon.
I like numbers and love reading about projectiles moving through the air and how different forces affect them, that's why I became a pilot by profession. But this airgunning is still foreign to me and like everything in life I like to understand first and then apply.
(I also found R10000 of savings that should probably be applied towards another rifle. Might bug everyone again for some advice on a springer. )
