I agree with Frank. Shoot the gun and let everything settle in and do some more research. There are ways to squeeze more out of it. I have regs in all mine except my aea 30 challenger and I left it set from the factory.

 Did some more Chrono work yesterday in the yard. Was a little windy, and I'm not sure how that effects number but after shooting a few through it , it seems to have settled in around 810 fps now. Tank doesnt leak down either. The only thing I added was that Archers Airguns Marauder tune kit bolt.  Could a windy day effect my Chrono? I'm guessing so. Lol

I'd be interested to know what phone app works as a chronograph by itself.

Apparently you tell it how far away the target it, then it "listens" for the report, then listens for the impact on target. then works out the FPS.

Dan,
If in fact that is how it works, that is the DOPPLER effect.

Hey Richard, welcome to the family.  Once you become more familiar with you rifle, there are some added trick that will increase you shot count, but limits you hammer tuning.  I have a few marauder rigs that are TACK DRIVERS well beyond the average pcp.  Most of the information can be found here and shared by the M-rod family.  Here are a few ideas, these are all slug pushers now.
