Breezy conditions can make accurate shooting with an air rifle very tricky but Mat Manning refuses to let blustery weather hamper this week’s hunt. Mat finds a small, sheltered field and gets down low to the ground to ensure that his pellets stay below the worst of the wind. The tactics bring excellent results and Mat makes a respectable bag of bunnies, along with scope-cam footage of each shot.
And we’ve got some very exciting ammo on test. Qiang Yuan Sportsgoods (QYS) pellets have won numerous Olympic medals over recent years, and are now available through The Shooting Party. Apart from producing flat-head pellet with serious match pedigree, QYS also make some very good domed and pointed pellets, as Mat discovers.
