I've got better pellets and better rifles but I'm determined to do it with a sub $200 gun, a cvlife 3-9x, and cheap pellets.

Very cool! 👍🏼 And congrats! 😊 I was working on a NUAH submission as well — with a sub-$100 springer in .22cal.... and I could see this might work out. But then I bought some PCPs. And shot exclusively PCP's for a couple years.Then I had visitors using my PCPs and I dug out the springer. ➔ 😱 And I was totally frustrated!, disgusted!, shocked! — at the shot cycle, the noise, the lack of precision, the hold-sensitivity — O it was the pits. No, I will never go back to that.... Matthias
that'll tighten up with some good ammo. Crosman shouldn't even be on the list, IMO.
looks like fun Ed...there is a satisfaction to doing well with cheap pellets... But my Storm does not...only likes Sniper Mags and 10.3 A.A. so far... nasty accurate at 35 yards with said pellets tho... stock barrel with just some leade work...initial testing of it and my Urby here... https://www.gatewaytoairguns.org/GTA/index.php?topic=151471.0 Mine is a Gen1 clearance... has it's faults and pluses... One of the pluses is 25 fpe with 15g dead stock... I believe they are ported to .140"(both .177 & .22)... that means a longer barrel should pick up the fpe 'specially with the .177... and the cool thing is the way the storm is set up do not have to degas to change barrels... just loosen the grub screws... So yep would love to give mine like 3 or more different barrels and call him the Monkey King...a different personality is just a barrel change away.. For heavier pellets was thinking could use a Maximus barrel that extra 6"+ of barrel should turn it into a 30+ fpe rifle in .177... would open up a couple barrel bands to .5" and sleeve the barrel to match...well anyways Back to CPUM doing best at 100... I believe it for sure... back in about 2014 saw a y tube vid of a guy with a Steyr .177 and it was 10.3 CPUM that was most accurate with groups comparable to yours... also they are the most accurate pellet in my .177 Buccaneer... It really is funny to me how folks dump on Crosman/Benji pellets... you never really know what will work best... Had a 2100 that after I choked the barrel was a laser with the Crosman 7.4 pointed... My first Maximus liked CPHP 14.3 best... Oh well their loss... well any ways nice job blazing the trail of 100 yards with a Storm... cheap ammo rifle and scope...you blazed a trail with your Urban and BBT also... it is showing that an air rifle can do very well without costing a mint...not to mention it's fun...Hope your day is going well, Kirby
