What pellets where you shooting ?

The JSB Exact Heavy 18.3 gr pellets.  I was trying the CPUM 14.3 gr's when it misfired and jammed.  I won't be using those in it any more!


Mr Lee is already designing Magazines for the shorter pellets.



When I got the .25 MAX ( that was the Sami Full Auto ) .....I got one as soon as they where produced and the magazines had some problems, Mr Lee at Evanix listened and immediately came out with Gen II Mags for those guns that worked perfectly,

That's what I like about those guys, they listen to the end user and they act.

Still tinkering, but getting better. Here's 2, 10 shot groups at 20 yards. Sorry you can't read the chrono. I'll do better next time.

Using a magneto speed v3 chrono and a Bulls eye camera system with a ZTE tablet. I've got a chit load of shot strings, all mixed up. Tried JSB 18gn, 15gn, monsters 25gn, H&N piledrivers (lousy), H&N field target trophy 14gn (jammed), Crossman HP 14gn (jammed), H&N sniper magnums 17gn (like these). I'm more concerned at the moment about function, rather than velocity. Had a few jams, one jam and spurt all the air out. A couple of times having to pull the trigger group and clean out the lead pieces. It's getting better. Tried trigger group in front and rear holes. Strange, sometimes in rear holes, can't cock? Sometimes OK? From what I can decern (you know what I mean), it appears Mr Lee is using the rebound of the valve to work the action. Pretty neat idea.

Shot string of JSB's 18gn, trigger in front holes (stock position)
mim 869 max 875 avg 872 s-d 2.0

JSB Monsters 25gn
min 731 max 736 avg 733 s-d 1.7

H&N sniper magnums 17gn trigger in rear holes
mni 947 max 956 avg 950 s-d 3.4

I think these are the correct numbers for the listed pellets. Didn't write them down as I went, just now pulled off chrono. :D

Having fun. Rifle is quiet, but pellets hitting my steel pellet trap making a noise! Neighbor's getting edgy! ;)

If so, don't. LOL!!!


If all else fails, degass, and check that the air tube is truly screwed tight against the block threads. And that the valve screws are fully tight. Take care not to strip them.


If the tube is not fully tight against the block, the descending pressure can cause it to move slightly, as as the barrel band in on the other end, it will act as a fulcrum/lever and move the orientation of the muzzle ever so slightly as the pressure lowers in the tube. ;)

 I dont use any SHORT pellets they cause jams I use JSB 18 with no issues and they have shot the best so far. Ive tried a few short pellets but all have caused issues sooner or later BUT I think I found a work around so Ill get back to you on that with after a little testing.

This is the last target I used. Went through a bunch. Marked ones are either 10 or 20 shots. Wild ones from other pellets that didn't work. Some of the pile drivers didn't even hit the target!

So far I'm liking the H&N sniper magnums, and the JSB 18gn. When I get things more settled in, I will tether to a regulated 2900 psi tank, for more consistent readings. Cwazy SW Florida weather, cold this morning, now this evening, about ready to turn on the AC !!!

I've not found anything that shoots those piledrivers worth  darn, other than a slingshot! 

If so, don't. LOL!!!


If all else fails, degass, and check that the air tube is truly screwed tight against the block threads. And that the valve screws are fully tight. Take care not to strip them.


If the tube is not fully tight against the block, the descending pressure can cause it to move slightly, as as the barrel band in on the other end, it will act as a fulcrum/lever and move the orientation of the muzzle ever so slightly as the pressure lowers in the tube. ;)

Interesting, I need to check and see if this is causing my POI shift.  Although, I can't imagine there would be that much change after just a few shots.  Here's a picture of a 6 shot string I did feeding individual JSB 18 gr pellets.  This was while I was trying some things Travis suggested to see if we could isolate the cause.  The first 3 shots are the top 3, the next 3 are the bottom 3.  All shot at 35 yards from a rest.  Something is shifting somewhere, I'm just not sure what or how...

Mine while shooting light pullets, (Rainstorm at 43 grs.) will put three on top of each other then shift up and left and put three more into a nice group. GRRRR!!!


 I have the tube indexed so that the fill probe can be used tethered from the right. No doubt his is an issue, as the tube has to be unscrewed when umpty slightly counter clockwise to accomplish this. Will change and see what she does.
 It's less than a quarter turn, but is likely the cause.

Interesting both groups are same size and directly on same plane I would do it again with the 18 JSB and crono it to see if the fps changes between the two groups and monitor fill pressure.
