Something like an EV2 (ready out of the box) is what I'm thinking... And to fund it, one of my springers will have to go:

to give 12ftlb a try. I like it! I didn't take it to LD's "cause I hadn't gotten any trigger
time with it yet.
I'll be ready.

High precision / low power is what airgunnings all about. 12fpe takes both to the extreme. I'm at a different point in the trajectory than you, but I'll get there eventually. Great seeing you on Saturday! Talk to you soon.

I honestly don't how you'all do it with just a 12x scope... Maybe it's because I've been looking thorough a 'telescope' (32x or 40x) for far too long.

See you on Sunday Carlos.

Just be sure to buy a plane ticket to Norway with that EV2. Good luck with your purchase.

this season I detuned my HW77 to shoot CPLs at 860fps instead of the 910ish I've used for years, and at the last DIFTA match I got "lucky" and knocked down almost 88% of the targets with the detuned setting. LOL

Anywhoo......since my duplex reticule 4-16 Elite 4200 bit the dust and Bushnell couldn't fix it due to lack of parts I ended up replacing it with a 4-12 Vortex Diamondback with the BDC reticule (a kind of ballistic dot setup) and I found that by using a 25 yard zero (instead of my usual 30 yard zero) and 860fps velocity the trajectory more closely matches the dots in my scope.

While the slower 860fps velocity does have a loopier trajectory than the 910fps I used to use, I was surprised that there really wasn't THAT much difference in the poi out to 55 yards, and the shot cycle is a bit tamer. I've never tried the 12fpe level so perhaps giving up another fpe of energy will make wind drift a lot more critical.........don't know here, just guessing!
