Bell target rifle practice, GRRRR.

Postby zunmik » Thu Dec 27, 2012 8:07 pm

Been getting some practice in today, surprised that the slavia although a great rifle did not group as well as the Baikal izh61 so its the B'kal-izzy
hmmm, after a few minutes a problem arose the izzy takes a 5 shot self indexing magazine, and when you cock the rifle with the sidelever, on the return stroke the lever picks up a cam on the bolt taking it forward to seat the pellet into the barrel, only it was'nt it was sliding pass the cam so that the pellet did not get loaded, and this was happening 3 shots out of 5,
Grrrrr :evil: this was followed by many "oh dear goodness me & oh golly gosh comments" :roll: , after 30 mins of cursing i discovered that this bolt assy was dry & was sticking :oops: ,after suitable lubrication normal service was resumed. I even managed to stuff the 4.5mm pellet through the 3/8" hole. why do we carry on using metric & imperial :? , no doubt my next visit to the club will have them all scampering for tin helmets & body armour whilst i explain that i did aim @ the target all those lights must have been caught by bounce back, unusual though it is for it to happen every shot.  :wink:  M. :)

Glad to hear you are getting there.

There seems to be quite an interest in Bell Target shooting at the moment.

Our club should be up and running soon.

Kind regards,

I know very little about bell target other than having a try at a UBC meet last year.

Are the leagues and clubs exclusively rifle or can people use pistols?

Bell target pistol does sound good.

A Webley Rebel with a diopter sight sounds like a cheap way of getting started, some of the custom rifles are a bit pricey.

Kind regards,

Bell target rifle/pistol practice.

Postby zunmik » Mon Dec 31, 2012 3:52 pm

Got some more practice in over xmas hol's group sizes are now starting to improve to a more acceptable level although a ways to go before i am satisfied, then i can adjust poi to the dead centre of the target. My biggest problem is maintaining concentration (something i've always suffered with)
when i lose concentration i get punished with fliers till i get my act together again. I realise being nearer to seventy than sixty its a bit late to start a new sport, but hope to start ringing that bell before i boot the proverbrial Bucket, M.  :wink:  :)

Have you tried listening to music, whilst practicing, to help you relax?

I seem to do better with some form of background noise, rather than total silence.

Kind regards,

:lol:

I think the tutu is an optional extra.   :D

I've just been reading up on the IZH61, and it certainly looks a very capable rifle for 6 yards.

Kind regards,

It can be adjusted to have a Very sweet trigger, very tight groups & with recoil almost non-existent. Its a capable & cheap starter rifle for bell target, and if all goes well i may invest in something recoiless later as well. Oh & i like its quirky looks "just like me" :roll: , M. :)
