    Does anyone understand why you have to shoot under the target (lower point of aim) when the target is higher as well as lower point of aim when the target is lower?

    Looks like Ive written gibberish but I hope you understand:confused:

    You set your scope up for shooting on a flat plane to compensate for gravity pushing down on your pellet.
    Shooting up and down, gravity has less affect on your pellet so your shots will land high, so you aim low. :)

    So gravity plays a big part in the trajectory of a pellet when shooting at an elevation ether up or down, Cool, I will experiment to see if different angles will change the POI or if it stays the same, something to do other than hit non lethal targets ;)
