Your ammo is 0.25g? A glass marble is 5g and steel 9.5mm is 4g roughly, well, 3.6. How is the shooting in terms of feel, do you use really light bands? What range is it good for?

it's airsoft bbs. i was shooting them indoors at 24'. i have shot them at 33' i shot them with looped 1632 tubes. the yellows, i don't know their weight, hit and mark, the blacks at .25 grams, penetrate the paper plate.

1632 is the spaghetti tube? They are quick but fragile I think. I love your catch box.

I’ve been looking over my 10 metre averages
Oct: 53%
Nov: 53%
Dec: 53%
Jan: 59%
Feb: 57%
February had some awful weather but overall slow steady improvement. March I want to get over 60% which is probably more realistic than 60% to 70% in a month. At least I know my general ability rather than the lucky runs or disappointing one offs.
Release: possibly the biggest clue before hitting the target.
Focus: the more immersed the better outcome. When I’m observing myself I’d might as well pack up and go home.

that's my inside catchbox. the 1632 looped tubes hold up pretty well for me. i find that sometimes i overthink, overwork the whole slinging process. i'm no marksman by any means, but i do wish to improve.

This is an orange I hit at 8.2 metres with misshapen stone. It was a bit old and dry so the ammo didn’t pierce the skin much. It would be like hitting my usual target at 12.3 metres.

Currently on track for a 60% March.

Here I’m hitting stuff even with tremor. Took me a few shots to zero in at unknown distance. But hey, a hit‘s a hit.

yesterday was so poor I didn’t even score it. Today I got 80% but then got 40% for the next set so I’m still on 63% for the month. I look for the day I can get 100%. But lack of concentration and overthinking will be my undoing.

Raggedy rain. The bane of paper targets! I’ve tried shooting in rain but it turns targets into paper mache and eventually it’s miserable if it doesn’t let up.
