    Yes! I'm experimenting with different projectiles, most with the same 10.5grns og AR2207. But not for grouping on cardboard, mainly to see what stops a beating heart the best. As I mentioned I'm onto Canada Goose this week, so more on that later.
    I did spend some time shooting cardboard today, only to get all three rifles back ON!

    The photo reminded me of shooting of the spare tyre on the bonnet of a Landrover that I had for many years. Used a bag of vermiculite for a front rest and supported the rear with my non shooting hand. Most testing was done on the old Roy's Hill range from the late 60's until it closed.
    Regards Grandpamac.

    I might wait for that lady to go back inside before I started shooting. Basically, feeding time for the ducks and chickens is like a dinner gong for the geese!

    True but Delta are wanting brand new money for a 10+ year old design. In theory the Bushnell warranty is better (lifetime) but the company has been going through some restructuring of late...
