Getting hits at that distance is very impressive.

Great test!  Super accuracy.  Imagine if you practiced daily with that ammo at that range...

Hope you have a metal detector to help recover your misses!

Good video.  Nice hit! Thumbs Up

Question.  Are you able to see misses with such a small projectile?  Possibly see the dirt splash.  I'm curious because if not, there is no reference for making adjustments.  Which in turn makes the hit even harder to achieve.

Yes they are still producing a very decent amount of force and the dirt splats are visible, now that I have had time to practice with them, I have found that they are only slightly less accurate than the regular 65 gram ammo I use, they just take practice.

Very true statement.  Any change in the sling or the ammo will almost always need at least a little time to adjust to it.
