That is my my plan for some "benchmarking" later.....for now,I'm testing in field conditions as hunting I have no choices re conditions as such....the scope is adequate for the job...it is all the other varibles I'm trying to cope with...and I'm working off a 20 yard zero.....indications are,this Disco can shoot 1" groups at 70 yards....that in itself says alot about the accuracy of this rifle...
I find what you did to be very interesting. However, it seems to me, if you are interested in knowing what that scope will really do, you should shoot on an absolutely calm day, and be shooting level. And you should shoot a group for each different situation. JMO

Good luck on your hunt it's suppose to be a warm one this weekend. I'm taking my Disco and going up to the SLO area this weekend for a turkey hunt on a private ranch that butts up against the LPNF. Unlike you I haven't been able to scout the ranch on foot but I've covered it pretty well with google earth.
I have not tried the JSB predators...but i learned early on with my Beeman .22 that Hollowpoints are great at shorter ranges...say inside 35 yards...and round nose domes were much more accurate beyond that..My Disco .22 (MAC 1)averaged 906 FPS on JSB 14.3's.(1st string of ten shots)..so I'm very interested in the slightly heavier 16 gr/15.8 gr pellets I have coming next week..velocity will drop,but muzzle energy will increase...my plan is to just shoot them at my original 20 yard zero on the chrony then get out for a 70 yard test in the field in our prevailing wind to compare with the 14.3's......they are scheduled to get here next Tuesday...then I have to get out after a turkey....season ends Nov 23rd...LOL...
