100 yard submission
« on: June 04, 2021, 12:26:51 AM »
Last time I had a 177 and didn't have the right target.
Today I have a .25 and the correct target.
Don't mind the dots everywhere, I tried to spook the cows away from the target and they just splashed mud on my paper.
Second target was with slugs but I didn't expect any wind drift & I was shooting through some blades of grass down range near the target so I blame that on the 1 flier. Lol
All in all it's minute of can at 100 yards.

Nice shootin' Rick. Something happened to the picture for submission with the ruler across it. only part of the target (and ruler) is showing. Could you please re-post with the whole target and ruler showing. Hate to be a stickler, but I think that's my job. also as requested add the range pics etc. per the instructions. Since this seems to be a recurring theme, I thought I would add this from the "sticky."

"Pics and/or video of the target range area.
Pics of targets.
Pics of the air gun/carbine/rifle and ammo---pics with you and the power plant used would be nice."

Video from downrange is still uploading. Here's the rifle , ammo, and target.  Was sitting on my butt using a phone tripod to hold the rifle steady.

Tried to beat my sharpshooter  submission from last year, but it seems 2" is as good as its going to get.

From last year till now  I've added a Black arts design barrel band.
& sorted pellets by head size with the pellet gauge tray thingy.

Top group is 6.39mm sorted
Bottom is 6.38mm sorted
Only two sizes in the air arms tin.
Had 1 with a flyer still not sure which headline.

Not sure what to do next to get it down to 1moa.

Rick, great shooting!

Just some questions/thoughts for you...

Is your barrel (muzzle) stabilized within the shroud?

I'm not sure if that's a Donnyfl adapter you have there, but there were two versions. The newer one has a centering tube that went over the muzzle.

If you don't have that version it might be worth looking into, or figuring a way to see if stabilizing the muzzle helps. If you do have that version, it might not have a tight fit. You could wrap some tape around the muzzle for a snug fit... All of this will change the harmonics, which may help or make things much worse, Lol.

Here's a picture of the Donnyfl adapter I recently acquired for comparison...

Hey Zack I'm not sure which version i got, it was tight but I still added a very small strip of electrical tape on one side of the muzzle. Not enough gap for 2 sides or all around. Then i slid the adapter over that and it was pretty snug. So no more wiggle room.  I really didn't notice a difference just got the peace of mind. I'm thinking the rifling on the pellets is just affecting it at longer distance.   I seen on stko , he set reg to 2900psi and shot it down to 2300 below reg when the best groups kicked in. Then he mentioned that's were the reg will be best at. Then he mentioned every distance needs its own tune. (Example 100 yards will need it's own tune & 50 yards will need its own tune) not sure if that has some truth to it or what.

Well, 2" at 100 yards is still very (very) good, but maybe the limit of that particular gun/projectile (pellet?) combination. All of this long range airgun shooting is fairly new to me, but I've learned how much a slight breeze can affect the POI down range. Finding an indoor 100 yard range is very difficult or not available in many areas, but would be useful to see what could really be done. But for many people, just waiting for that perfect day when the air is absolutely still is all we can hope for.

Best wishes in chasing down those sub 2" groups.
