I love my Powerline BB/Pellet rifle. I use .177 cal flad nosed pellets. I have so far shot at 55 yards accuratly with a pizza box. 1/4 shot group. I just had to raise the retical on the very top of the box to get middle. The time of impact was 3 seconds. I tried to shoot at 100 yards and couldn't do that. I aimed it a little higher. Couldnt even lead my shot. I heard it hit the ground though. So besides leading my shot, what other ways could I calculate how to hit 100 yards? Obviously im a target shooter, so thats why im trying 100 yards with a pizza box. But I do plan hunting squirrel with hollow point at 30 yards or closer. But thats not the question. heh.

TY

Has your scope ran out of "UP" adjustments yet? Bear in mind though with the scope it will be very big changes to zero from 55 m out ot 100 m and then back again...lots of clicks.

I'm sited in at 30 yards. I just heldoff for the 55 yard shot. And the 100 yard shot. But im gonna try and site in for 55 yards tomarrow. Oh and the scope is the one that came with the gun. A cheap 4x20. Thing doesnt even click. I have no idea where a my zero-in point is from them.

Hold off on my question. Im thinking of a way to compensate for wind and drop off by using the Duplex reticle. Gonna number the lines etc. I'll get a databook set up with values and have it apply to my reticle. It'll make sense when I post pics.

I swear, this would work better with a .22. At least it wouldn't look stupid putting a proper scope on a .22.
