        Instead of your normal BLO or beeswax use bacon grease on your Conus. Then just sniff it out when you lose it. You’re welcome.

        Well it starts out normal- then all of a sudden I look like Dgui speed shooting! Only trouble is, you hear the hits half way through the video. And it continues through the video.

        I made that mistake once. I shook up a full beer bottle and hit it from about 20' . I felt pieces of the bottle hit me in the face, not good!

        This one was empty- I was expecting a "clank" ricochet sound. I guess I should have said imploded, as there was a hollow "pop" as it just collapsed. Awesome!

        If You want to shoot with slingshot when temperature is lower than 0°C, Precise Anti-Cold is perfect. I have only 0,75 mm thick.

      My eyes must had fooled me thinking 2” inches. Not feet what you clearly said. Lol. I was thinking wow I must really be bad at my shooting set ups. He is getting only 2” drop at 100’.

        Well, I stand corrected. Went to my favorite 25' shooting and realized when I was doing my 100' shots, I was holding the grip of the forks higher-STILL over a foot drop!

        @Searcher_47 you know i think a person learns different hold overs for different distances and really doesn’t think about the actual measures hangover in a measured sense. If that makes sense.

      Through with 100' bottle shot-I can only graze it. But shooting long distance DOES improve shooting- have to be calm and release good.

        What setup for 2"drop at 100' feet? I really need to start logging what ammo and set ups do what for my intended distance. Makes me wonder if I am not getting the best performance out of my set ups.
