In your first target are you placing one shot for each target? just wondered

I would still try a closer zero first to check the pellet groups then try another brand to see if any difference & carry on with practice.

I can't tell for sure on the breach situation but notice the pellet is seated deeper & slight mark after closing.If it shows no shearing then its fine.

Make sure the crosshair is in focus with the adjusting ring & try 5x at 15 yards & see how you go.

It's a fixed focus scope and 50mm objective. So plenty room for error if unawares.

Believe it or not; yes, that was my intention.

My knowledge of all things scope-related is clearly sadly lacking. I'm going to have to look into (see what i did there?) this a lot more.

I think I'm beginning to understand "parallax". In my mind it's either losing sight of the target due to the focus of the scope being off OR it's a hole in the space/time continuum that gives Captin Kirk a headache.

Fortunately I am a card-carrying .22 owner with my roots firmly in the North-East.

(My sordid *orkshire past was just a bad phase of which I am ashamed.)

@Barry - Great tips, Barry. Pick any prize from the middle Sheffield.

I've just realised I said "Sheffield" there (thanks to predictive text!!!!) which makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.

@Barry - Pick a prize from the middle shelf and half a lolly to make up for the confusion.

it makes perfect sense, Sheffield isn't exactly top shelf ::)
