Hello everyone,

I know the first goal of the scatt is to see its shot and release.

However, I also want to record my points better.

I have significant differences in rifle results (in points). 8, 9 or 10 when I think I am in the same area.

Do you think that by setting the scatt on a support (calibration step; for example with an easel or a vice) I would manage to have more representative results?

Thank you

the main problem in comparing the Scatt results to a real shot on target for me is that the Scatt did not react as fast the bullet leaves the barrel.
So if your holding is very strong, the Scat and real shots are nearly the same, but if your holding moves, the Scatt is later on the aiming line as the real shot is on the target.
I have discussed this behaviour more than one time with the Scat support. But for them Scatt is not a "Result" giving unit, it is a training unit to see the aiming line and holding strength.
So you would not get better results if you calibrate on a easel.
You get the best calibration result when calibrating in the original position you would shot later. Means if you shot in standing position you have another viewing line and aiming angle to the target as if you calibrate on a easel and then the calibration is wrong.

By the way, i have made some test with my Scatt basic. One of these test was that i fasten my rifle to a bench and go to the calibration menu of Scatt software. When i see the red point, i move my mouse cursor on it. Then i take a sheet of paper and "blind" the sensor when putting the paper between target and Scatt sensor. Then i release the paper and see where the red point is now, i repeat this for about 20~30 times, the red point moves a little bit away from the mouse cursor. I could not explain why, but i have this result in my tests.
