Excellent!!!

Now before posting initial numbers if I may just say 2 things.

First, these were not sessions done with any kind of prize in mind. Not even really the pride of being the best. We all have days, and I know you all know this, that we are 3 times better than our worst days. That is just the nature of slinging. So before you look at numbers and judge yourself (which is exactly what I would be doing lol) keep in mind this is one day. Not even one day really. Just a relatively few shots. I could sling 200 shots in no time, so even a 100 shots is just a snap shot of a moment in time. your next score, should you choose to post additional scores could be twice as good. Same slinger, same sling, same ammo, different day.

Secondly, this is not meant to be a challenge. This is for science my good men!!!

We are pushing the limits of accuracy or at the very least we are trying to discover both your max limit and your average limit and in doing so hopefully get a better idea of what the sling’s max limit is. That will be awhile, but this is where that starts.

Ok, so now for the process.

It’s very simple- using the Absolute Difficulty Index simply divide the target distance by the target size making sure both are in the same units of measurement.

That gives us the ADI number. Then take percentage of hits versus misses and multiply the ADI by that percentage. The final number is the score. I decided for simplicitie’s sake to only use the biggest target size available. So if you have the square and the diana then all diana hits became hits and all square hits became hits. No points this time. We can/will do that in the future.

Ok without further ado:

(Assuming Joe’s square is the standard 47 inches)

1615 cm / 119 cm =ADI 13.5

13.5x62.5% hit rate =

Joe Meadmaker - Score of 8.5

——————————————————

IG- 2000 cm/ 119 cm = ADI 16

16x85% hit rate = 14.2

IronGoober - Score of 14.2

——————————

Tombelaine - 1600cm/40 cm =ADI -40

40x 33% hit rate = 13.2

Tombelaine - Score of 13.2

——————————-

NOOC

1000cm/83cm = ADI - 12

12 x 64% hit rate = 7.7

NOOC score of 7.7

——————————————-

Technically these are equal across the board. So long as we stay within 20 meters of the target distance/windage/power etc dont really change from 10-20 meters so that’s not the issue.

But then again not really as NOOC went ironman on us and did 50 shots in a row. That will of course wildly swing your average downwards or at least “should” since slinging is so focus intensive and unfortunately focus degrades over that many shots, it doesnt get better.

I point this out so that when I choose to do a 20 shot run like a sensible person you know its purely for my ego...I mean for science, and as always, for the children.
