150 is the closest you can shoot it, but that's cupcake shooting. I believe we can get 250 with Norm's Hercules.

I knew you'd say that,lol!  When I get the chance to check the accuracy with these piledrivers, the Bullboss may do pretty good at the longer distances, since they should buck the wind pretty well.  It is slinging the heck out of those suckers.

Well, the Piledrivers are a no go at this point.  A 1.25" group at 30 yards ain't gonna cut it.  On the bright side, I apparently won a new prototype Neil Clague LDC :D  Right now, the Barracuda Match is what I'm gonna have to stick with on the long range stuff.

Sorry to hear about the pile drivers, same kind of results I was seeing with the Rabbit Magnum ll. I tried the JSB Beast from the M10 out at 50 yards today, and came away disappointed with them as well. They open up and throw a zinger about every 5 shots in random directions. Peter may have been right about the spiraling. The JSB Monsters are not the cat's meow with the M10 either, but the H&N Baracudas will shoot one ragged hole at 50 yards so like you, I am back to them for my goto pellet for this gun. My P12 likes them as well, so maybe SPA barrels like the H&N pellets.

I'm going to try it today with my AT44-10 .25, weather permitting, but I'll be doing good to get a few on the target, let alone one on the ball. Maybe I'll get lucky. We'll see.

Have you tried the redesigned .22 Monsters? Supposed to be better.

They are most certainly better in my Bullboss.  I've only shot them at 30 yards, but they were one ragged hole.

I did the Airgun Depot Long Rangers Challenge today in both 150 and 175 yds. Had to do both twice, though, due to noob video foul-ups. The first 175 took a lot of work because of gusty and variable winds. Not strong, but unpredictable. The second 175, in the afternoon, when the wind was better, after learning how to work the manual focus on my camera, took only 8 shots. Talk about luck. Just goes to prove that old axiom that even a blind hog finds an acorn once in a while. Anyway, I didn't get to go for 200, as I only had 4 balls, and I had used them up. Still, provided that AD approves the videos, it will get me into the drawing for the FX Impact. Since I missed on the $3/4 Billion lottery the other day, winning the Impact in the drawing is about the only way I'll ever get one. :-)
