Maybe a new game to play?

Post by bandit1250 » Fri Jun 14, 2019 8:00 pm

I haven't been able to shoot for two days now due to weather. This evening the winds died down from the very gusty winds we had today earlier. I wanted to try my Grand Finale CZ on something a little different. Took a piece of board and drilled 4 holes in it. was in a hurry or would have drilled a dozen. None of the bigger kitchen matches so had to use the smaller ones. Pushed my car back to get two more yds. and make it 24 yds. These are to small for my scope(6X) at past 30 yds. any way. The next bigger size matches will be better at the longer distance. Had to take two shots to get it on to hit the thin match stick. Then I hit the 4 with four shots but one was on the edge.

The next 4 was 4 for 5 shots.
Image
The third string was 4 for 4 shots.

Then I decided to switch ammo as the RWS box had only two left in it. Switched to Aguila standard vel. Shot at a line on the backer and had to move it 2 clicks left. Then it looked good on the backer. The first shot missed the match and from the backer I needed more left. Moved it again two clicks and hit. Missed one more shot before running the next three off. So on that string switching ammo I took 6 shots to hit 4 match sticks. A friend wants us to try to strike the bigger matches on a calm evening. Should be fun to try that.

These Chinese matches don't even light very well using the striker on the box. I have to get some good brand ones if that is even possible any more.
