Well, it's Competition time again and today saw the 2017 SARPA League kick off in windy style at New Kypeside. An interesting course that winds up a shallow river bed and has some crazy cross winds that seem to manage to blow in two directions at once.
I did OK at reading the wind, but I was particularly pleased with my range finding. Even better I managed to shrug off a terrible streak of misses (a total of four doughnuts) and come back swinging.
like something went wrong with the scope for a bit as I was totally missing mid-ranged targets that all but filled my reticule. Just no way I shouldn't have hit something
I gave the whole rig a good shake to see if something sounded lose and, while it didn't rattle, it did seem to sort out whatever was going wrong. So despite the shocking misses I still managed to rack up a good for the day 43x60 which was good enough for second place in Recoiling.
Further investigation need to be done on the rifle and scope; check scope mounts, stock bolts, dial the internal scope tube all the way up/down, left/right etc. to see if something went wrong or if I was just suffering a run of bad luck in finding blades of grass or whatever.
