Also, lastly, certain of you will be required to take part in this. Weather is no excuse, as is disability, money, time or any other possible excuse. If you are feeling judged right now Iím probably talking about you.

Good. That was the intention! Lol.† Cheesy But if it makes you feel better, itís not just you.

EDIT: Ok...maybe we should add 2 more rules.

1. There must be at least 20 shots in a row. (Assuming we want accurate info)

2. You must obtain a hit percentage of at least 25%.

These two rules are to prevent someone from choosing an absurdly small target Nd grtting one or two lucky hits and posting a score that is so far out of line with averages it collapses the whole system.

I took 50 shots in 10 rounds of 5 shots each today.†
No warmup shots
28.5" asymmetric sling (parcord with leather pouch)
Byzantine style
30x36" target size with 12" bullseye

Results: 32/50 hits
I didn't tally up bullseyes versus normal hits.

64% Accuracy


Looking at the effects of a warmup... 1st 25 shots:† 16/25 = 64%
second set of shots: 16/25 = 64%

No change across 50 shots Smiley
Maybe next time I'll try 100 if I have time.

I'm confused Morphy.  My target was smaller than a standard Balearic... why is the ADI not a bigger number for mine than Joe M's?

Morphy has mentioned it already but I will reiterate that more shots is way better. If you change one in 20 shots itís a 5% difference. If I had only posted results of my first 20 shots instead of 50, the hit percentage wouldíve been 70% instead of 64%, but 64 is more accurate of an estimate of my shooting.

Jaegoor -

2000cm distance ų 120 cm =† ADI 16.6

16.6 x 85% = 14.16

Jaegoor's score is 14.2

When I get time, I'll try and get out with my 13" Balearic for some interesting comparison.

That would be much appreciated. Especially with the very short sling.

I actually took a tape measure out and did another 50 shots... 64% again, but the exact distance measurement was 14.5m...

Assuming I probably stepped in front of the starting line because of the way I lunge forward on the throw, I would revise my distance estimate to around 13 meters instead of 10, which was originally based on pacing it off.

Ok, since Morphy wants ďbestĒ accuracy shooting, hereís a 50-shot sequence from last Friday. If you count the first half as warmup then I had 76% over 25 sequential shots in the second half of the practice session. Overall average is 64% without a warmup.
