Daniel, I wanted to ask you about your Maverick setup.  I just took the .25 barrel off my Crown and put a .22 barrel on it.  It's shooting pretty accurately and I haven't changed the reg from the way it was set for the .25 cal. which was around 140 bar.  I need to retune it and am thinking that a good starting point for the reg would be around 100 - 110 bar.  What speed are you shooting your JSB 18s at?  With the little testing I've done with the reg still set at 140 bar, I seem to be getting the best accuracy at around 900 fps.  I've got a Maverick Sniper too but it's a .25 and I'm still trying to find a decent tune for it.

I'm sorry for the very delayed reply! I just noticed this post.  I'm running a little over 100 bar, according to my gauge, which is small and reads too high (planning to get a Sekhmet). So, maybe 95-100 bar.  It shoots the JSB 18.1 s at about 930 where I have the hammer spring set.  I've also tried 125 bar, and, although the Maverick still was pretty accurate, it seems happier around 100 bar.  FYI, I still haven't had much luck with any slugs except for the FX Hybrids.  I want to try a Superior Heavy barrel, but I can't seem to find one.  However, the way it has been shooting the JSBs, I should probably just stick to pellets.  The pellets won't be as fun when breezier fall conditions take over.

Darn!  You guys are getting better groups at 100 yds than I am at 50!  There is so much to learn about these FX's and with all my testing I'm running out of pellets! :P

Paul, I'm right there with ya buddy. I was in the same predicament for years until I got the FX Boss.
 
Back then,I had a few guns that could shoot much tighter at 50 than what we see at 100 now days, but once I tried them at 100 yds , I couldn't get much tighter than 1.25"

Amen.

If you really want to see some amazing groups, take a look at the three groups Mike N posted today at 100 yards over on AGN. Truly remarkable with his Thomas.  NET:  3 MOA groups; one 25 shot group and two ten shot groups.

Daniel,

Thanks for the information.  Iím surprised that you are shooting the 18ís at 930 fps. The .22ís I have, all seem to like the JSB 18ís at around 880-890 fps.  FX makes so many different barrels but I believe mine is an STX Superior barrel like yours except mine is a 600mm barrel and I think yours on the Maverick Sniper is 700mm.  That may be why your 700mm likes 930 fps.

Also, I think the October Match #7, started on October Sept. 20th but I don't see any information on it.  Am I not looking in the right place or has it not been put up yet?

I was going to post my scores today but I don't see where we can post for the October match.  It ends in 10 days so I hope Kevin will put it up soon.

Gentlemen,
I apologize for my lack of attention to the boards. Iíve started a new job, which requires a great deal of time and attention. Iím just now getting my feet on the ground. Also the location of said job does not allow for access to GTA except through my phone. Couple that with some additional family and personal requirements in the evenings and weekends, my air rifle time has been wiped out. This should be under control now.
Mea culpa
