When it comes to shoot­ing groups, smaller is al­ways bet­ter – as Martin Calpin ex­plains

Airgun World - - Ft Intro -

Afew ar­ti­cles back, I made the bold claim that the plinking range wasn’t of much value to the field tar­get shooter, be­yond check­ing ranges, and I still stand by that state­ment, but I will say that the plinker is good for one thing and that’s do­ing group­ings. ‘Why do I need to do those?’ you may well ask. Well, last month we talked about check­ing your pel­lets, and I’m imag­in­ing that you now have a year’s sup­ply of mega pel­lets at hand, and that you just can’t miss, right? One of the rea­sons for do­ing the group­ings is to re­duce the size of the groups to en­sure that you hit more tar­gets. Must peo­ple imag­ine that where they point the cross hair is where the pel­let is go­ing, but we all make mis­takes, we also have to breathe, and gen­er­ally we can’t sit still for very long.
