As the other thread has drifted off course (no surprise there
of course it really didn't have one
) I have decided to start another and add just what it looks like when I am patterning. The bad news is I checked the weather last night and it called for wind starting in the middle of the night and blowing hard all day. Well I slept in because of this thinking that there would be no point in trying today. When I woke up and went outside it just happened that it was dead calm so I hurried and got ready and ran for the wash. When I got there the breeze was just starting and by the time I fired the last round I had to wait for a break in the wind, so I only got off 5 rounds before I was blown out.
Now for the pics.
The junk lined out on the back of the tail gate.
The 60 yard paper with my truck being at the 40ish yard mark at its front end. The paper is 48"x56". The pic is wide angle to give kind of a way to reference just how dam far 60 really is for those who aren't sure
60 from narrow field of view.
The 30 yard paper which is 46"x52" from the 30 yard mark.
Ok now for the patterns. I use my 6d for high res for you guys on these instead of the cell phone pics. I marked everything outside of the 30" circle also so you can see how fast the fliers migrate out of the patterns as the distance increases and then how the core blooms at a more consistent rate. I think its a pretty good series to in which to see this.
and two at 60 with the wind kind of getting me on one of them
I have no doubt in my mind that these will flatten a goose out to 60 if I can put them on one. Of course at 30 any duck or goose will be Swiss cheese. And before you say it BT, yes I wish these were a little faster but I can see where there is only so much room for shot and powder in this little 28 hull and something has to give. I would not want to give up any pellets for anymore speed as even at 1100 fps this stuff would still flatten a goose to 50
