Hello from the U.S.A. I just ran across your forum recently. I shoot Field Target here in the U.S. I mainly shoot in the Piston Division. My main rifle is a Whiscombe JW-65 MKII .177. I also enjoy shooting International PCP with my Air Arms EV-2, 12 fpe rifle from time to time. I live close to Pulaski, TN and shoot at the Good Ole Boys Club about every two weeks.
I shot in the World Match last year in Pulaski, TN and met some of you guys briefly there. Too bad we did not have more time between matches. I would have enjoyed talking with some of you more...
I was reading your rules for Field Target there in South Africa and I have a brief question. The rules state that the rifle must meet the "12 ft/lbs - below 800 fps." My EV-2 is the rifle that I would use if I attend your match. It shoots 7.9 grn pellets 805 fps or about 11.4 fpe. So, does it meet your regulations? Or, would it need to be adjusted to shoot below 800 fps even though it is already shooting below 12 fpe? I am just interested as I would like to try to make it to your World Match there next year...
Well, congratulations on your Team placing 2nd in this years World match. Job well done! I will be looking forward to meeting you all again in the future.
