This one was moving every few seconds or so but jumped up on pole and minute he held still i air mailed a pellet to him..lol Was a bit tricky staying on him with scope,but not as bad as it would appear....I quickly adapted a 'system'..aquire target sighting down barrel with rifle layed over on it's side.....then bring up vertical looking thru scope...bore to center scope is 1.50"...
Crazy.... I never did doubt that you could kill with that scope. I was just saying it would be very hard to acquire the target, especially if it run a short distance like squeaks tend to do. If you can get them setting on top of rocks, stumps, post, that is a complete different story.Good luck on your competition coming up. Murph.

Fun,but focus does not go below 50 yards...there are areas I hunt squirrels that require mostly 50 yard + shots,and I use it in those areas...got a hunt coming up soon where ground squirrels have burrows all over the place in over 100 acres of pasture land on an indian reservation.....My friend uses a Crosman NPSS .177 and drops them out to 60 yards using a cheap 3x9x40 mil dot..he is a very good springer shooter...I shoot HPA guns mostly using 6-24 Varmit scopes, so plan on rigging up a camera tri-pod to shoot with the 40X so I can 'traverse' the flat terrain easier shooting squirrels...tripod will help to 'mitigate' the small field of view...Some pics from our last hunt there..
That setup has got to be a load of fun out in the field i can't see vermin having a chance at survival nice shooting

Might be the 'hold' you are using......use very light grip with shooting hand..very important for ANY rifle....and use 'open palm' rest on forestock...the NPSS shoots smoother than 'metal' spring guns,but still has that 'reverse' recoil...so the hold is the solution to accuracy in spring guns.....
I can't seem to hit very good with my springer past 30 why is that ?
