    I'm probably not alone in wishing

    Ron and Dick would you consider writing a tutorial on how to shoot that consistently well? Both outdoors and indoors.

    I'd understand if you'd rather not publish your techniques. If so it's ok to just send them to my PM

    rule number one is shoot all the same good tested pellets for each target
    i will check with Ron to see how many more of our secrets he thinks we can expose to you

    Magic Pellets

    The tutorial is a good idea, but what I want to know is, "Dick or Ron, how much do you want for one of those tins of pellets"!!!

    now that Chas has brought up the money issue
    there is something you have to do before rule #1
    purchase as often as possible pellets to test for your barrel
    and test as soon as the test pellets are acquired to purchase more of the good ones
    and practice, practice and practice some more with all those non good ones
    do not waste the good ones on practice
    we all eventually do run out of the good ones
    so they are almost NEVER for sale

    the last time i shot with you the wind was so strong it blew half of my flags over
    but you shot very well
    i think you might be the person to do a tutorial on outdoor shooting

    Thanks Dick

    That was a day to remember - and what I remember most is how stressful it was shooting in those conditions.

    I think I did what everyone does: wait for the couple of shootable conditions that recur. That day there were gusts that could send you to the next bull, but maybe 20% of the time flags and windicator* gave accurate information. The necessary continuous concentration was difficult and mentally exhausting.

    I had a bad case of "nerves" that match, and it helped to take a walk between cards rather than obsessing. I wish I had your and Ron's equanimity!

    "Home court advantage" was the biggest help

    *(This match was a good example of why not to shoot when the flag tails are horizontal. That condition indicated a hold-off range somewhere between two rings and 100 )

    Get them while they last

    I agree with you Dick about getting some lots to test and then testing them quickly, so in case there is a good lot in there you can order more before they are sold out. That happened to me once.

    Pellets

    I gave up weighing,air gauging etc several years ago. I buy a sleeve of monsters that have the red sticker
    With the die number on it. I clean between each card. I do check for a bent skirt before loading. The first tin shot a 250 high X count. I label that tin ok. The next card was the second tin and also a 250 with high X count also labeled that tin OK. The third tin shot around the 10 ring with a low X count. I labeled that tin so so.
    The second match the 4th tin was better with a 250 and good X count. Labeled OK. The fifth tin was all around the 10 with very low X count and dropped a couple of points.the 6th tin was all around the ten ring and dropped some more points.
    I still have pellets I shoot outside from 2008, 2011, for Light Varmit
    And a bunch from 2011 and 2010 in 18 gr and 16 gr I shoot in my SUMO.

    When you find something that works buy all you can!

    Glad to see you up and about Paul
    you are experiencing a lot of the same problems we are
    i had an awesome tin of 8.4's and got a sleeve and only found one tin in the sleeve was OK
    no where near as good as the first tin, just OK
