D48 With Vortek, Can Deliver!
« on: March 02, 2019, 05:28:32 PM »
I recently rebuilt my D48 using the Vortek ďHigh OutputĒ spring kit. After settling her it at 50 to my satisfaction it was time to stretch things out, and see if she can do, what I love to do most. Long range plinkiní nothing formal. Just some casual shooting to assess the performance of the new spring kit. I was pleased with the results. But for a danged flyer that just had to ruin a great thing! Ahh... What can you do...?

The horses were interested...


I love this scope. I keep it zeroed for 50 yards. You can see ďPlinkyĒ my practice squirrel in the lower right of my reticle...

 
The extra yard is to account for the length of the rifle...


Yeah! Iím pointing you out flyer!!! Your kind ainít welcome round here!


All in all not bad for the newly rebuilt rifles first trip to the long range bench.


Iím still trying to put a group together for a 125 yard entry. Maybe this year will be the year...

When I had the scope on my 48 it would do 1" or less all day long at 35 yards.

 How did your 350 Mag do?  I have one in .177 tuned and ready to try my luck at longer range.

I havenít given the 350 an honest go at it. I took a few months off from airgunning ( like winter always makes me do ), but I plan on giving her to ole college try this spring. I just need to order up some more of her favorite pellets. When the time changes back I might be able to reclaim some of my free time from the darkness. That and... if this insufferable rain would take a bleeping weekend off! I can count on one hand the days it hasnít rained on the weekend since mid October... Iím praying for a biblical drought. But I digress...

 Summer will show up soon I hope, been a cold winter. I hope you do not have a spring and summer like I had here a few years ago, rained every weekend more or less, don't want to see that again.

I bought a very nice 48 from a GTA member that I think could do the 100 yard.
I know it was hitting a 4" target at 90 yards back then. May not make Master but still a killer Gun!

Nice grouping! What velocity is yours shooting at with the ho kit? I had mine detuned with a macarri setup, so 100 might be a stretch for my 48, but still want to give it a go.

If you want to play at 100 yards; I suggest starting with an 8" gong. It saves time walking back and forth downrange to change targets, and gives an audible confirmation of your hits. I made a quick vid with a cell phone to show my buddy. Now he wants one...


You can even go farther and customize the gong to N.U.A.H spec so you can get a better idea of exactly where your hitting.
Kinda like this... ttps://www.gatewaytoairguns.org/GTA/index.php?topic=155502.msg155716092#msg155716092
Long range plinking is loads of fun!
