Yard dog, you are totally correct that I am on a budget. I am looking forward to trying out the new scope and seeing if it really does improve my accuracy. Thank you again everyone who has made suggestions.
I had bought about a gamo shadow whisper (aka silent cat same exact specs). I had tried the gun from about five yards and it was doing about a 2 1/2 inch groups. It was very frustrating. I then did some research and realized how much gunk can be in the barrel. I used some alcohol and cleaned the barrel out with wipes and it WAS dirty. The groupings got MUCH tighter I mean at 5 yards I was getting the same whole every time. At this time I was using daisy pointed precision max pellets for only 1.97 at Walmart. I backed up to around 10 yards and the group went from same hole to a 5 inch group. I was freakin out. I bought EVERY pellet at Walmart and except the Crosman Premier Hp. I tried the piranhas and all the other pellets and the best I could do was around 2 inches. I then bought the CPHP and it turned my groups at ten yards into less than a half inch. I backed out to around 25 yards (probably like 23) but I was able to consistently get a quarter size group and I am wondering if I should be getting better than that. I have heard stories of people getting quarter size groups at 40 and 50 yards, is that even possible? Thank You so Much for your input.
Well now...not too shabby!
You do not mention which model Gamo you have and some models are worse than others.
