I recently went and shot in a match this past weekend. Weather was great, ammo was right on, given some of my shooting.
Here's my problem? Most of us get the good groups with a flyer. That seems to be a cast bullet rule, but it was taking me 5-7 rounds on the sighter target before it would tighten up to where it normally would average.
It also did the same thing while I was shooting for score. The only thing that changed in the shooting time with all the enviromentals was the short amount of time between the matches, 15-20 mins. Then I would have to run another 5-7 rounds to get it to settle down.
The end result was I ran short of ammo at the shoot. Oh well there is alwasys next time but I don't understand why such a short amount of time between relays of targets would cause this to happen. Comments please.
