    Default Kraaifontein shooting range

    I went to look on Kraaifontein's calender
    ( http://www.kraaifonteinshootingclub.co.za/?page_id=66)
    after receiving an SMS about air rifle shooting there and I was surprised to see they have a dedicated air rifle slot there every month. I am strapped for cash after the new toy but I will go look tomorrow to have a look at the range again. Was about a decade ago I was last there.

    My brother in law and myself went and had a look . Farkit that road is bad. Loads of lil targets on the range
    I wanted to stick around and meet everybody but time was of the essence. Had a new toy and a few hours to shoot before I had to go to work. I wanted some serious trigger time so drove to D'ville and sent a couple hunnerd lil wasps going downrange

    Did pellet tests in my HW97K and it likes JSB 4.51mm and Air Arms 4.52mm Field pellets a lot, BUT RWS Meister Kulgen 4.51mm(by my estimate) flat heads are candy to it.

    I could not believe the grouping on 25m with them RWS pellets. 4 overlapping holes from 5 hots and another set of 3 overlapping holes on the second target. Flat head pellets are not usually that accurate past 15m. It out grouped the JSB and AA pellets by a large margin comparing the spread.

    Hopefully I can take it easy at the next gathering and stop for a hello. Worked from 19:00 last night till 05:00 this morning and a bit just before typing this . Pretty tapped.

    We had like a mini Field Target competition there on saturday. The little targets is not always there. Privately owned targets between 4 guys and setted up a field.

    Meister Kugeln is a 10m Olympic grade pellet. Good for up to 20m. If you want to shoot FT, HFT or hunting - then try an other pellet.

    Thanks guys for setting up this informal shoot. It was great fun and a good opertunaty for me to try out my new S400 I got last week and also shoot my very first FT round ever.

    I must again appologize for arriving a bit late as I suffered from a chemical inbalance in the body after a night out to a friends birthday party.

    I had a blast with all the guys . What a great bunch of folks ! They really went out of their way to help met get to grips with the new gun and the FT rules for shooting.

    Thanks again! When are we doing this again?

    It was fun, and I'll probably go again, BUT I really missed the fire and braai that normally go with our shoots on Saturdays.

    Daai windbukslope was so warm geskiet, jy kon net die boerewors daarom draai en dis in 'n kits gaar. Daar is 'n braaiplek by die klubhuis. Reel volgende keer met die manne ...

    Hoekom so vroeg? Wel na meer as 'n week in die bed met long ontsteking het ek nie baie stamina gehad nie... anyway 8 dubbel Rum & Cokes op 'n lee maag is al wat ek kon hanteer.
