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