    PS to above. The next time the wind is blowing like Sunday, I will change tactics and shoot heavy pellets. Shooting Gerries christmas tree with CZ heavies (+-10.3gn) at 25yds 5 for one hole and then a second shooter shot two more into the same group!

    Warrick,
    I'll admit the wind defeated me big time. Two things I battle with tremendously are standing shots and wind. Yesterday afternoon I got a chance to shoot a few shots in my back yard. I shot one hole groupings(at least 10 each) with both the Mamba and my trusty "Creepy." Obviously no wind and off the bench. Was it lack of wind or was it because I was using FX and Daystate pellets? BOTH, I think.

    Brian,
    No sorry man. I didn't know you had a additional bag. I used your fancy bag only as it did such a nice job I didn't thing I would need a bag at the back also. That bag I remember you put in the back of the car. Maybe Warrick still has it at the range somewhere and didn't know who's it is.

    It will have to be me since I normally go to church s before any shooting on a Sunday. It might even be the reason why Guitte's and my scores are so low.Could be because we shoot on Sundays.
    Then again I see nothing wrong with some good fun and relaxation on a Sunday. One thing that I have picked up on, that annoys me no end, is the blasphemy that takes place amongst the guys. I assume it happenss unconsciously and not it is meant as such, but it still is annoying if you are you are sensitive to it. I managed to just about stamp it out at our range at Leeuwkop.

    I think the warmth had something to do with it.
