    I asked Neil about cleaning and he said that "they can be blown through with compressed air, or run a mild detergent through them".

     

    I'm quite pleased with it, works great, looks great and is very light.

    Oh, sorry, winds were quite calm, if anything they were to my back.  Helping that little slow moving pellet hump along.

    ok y'all, here goes.

    Setup at 25, 50 and 75 paces.  My buddy shot these with his rangefinder a few weeks ago and paces are pretty darn close to yards.

    First up was 25paces/yds

    5 shots in the center target led me to believe I needed a few clicks on the scope.  Up 2, Right 2.  Target at the 3 o'clock is 5 shots.  The rest are single shots going for bull.

     

    Next up is 50 paces/yds.  2.5mil of holdover.  Here things start to fall apart. I'd get some pretty good consistency, then a couple fliers.  IDK, I'm doing my best artillery hold.  Maybe it's me.

     

     

    Then 75 yds/paces.  6mil of holdover.  No point, I can barely hit the trap.

     

    And that's all.  Clearly it's a 25yd gun. I wouldn't shoot anything at 50yds, just wouldn't be humane. 75 is out of the question.

    fyi:  That's a 700mm barrel hiding in there and a 580cc bottle

    One of a kind.nice job. Is it really that much quieter than a Donny FL.?

    I don't know, never had a Donny FL.  it's quite tho.

     

    heavy-impact

    Does it contain baffles or just sound deadening material? If baffles are they aluminum? Looks really good.

    baffles and sound deadening, all aluminum

    My .30 Impact is a gen1.  It's been back to FX for power tuning and a aux plenum.  I've also put a 700mm slug barrel on it and bigger 580cc bottle.

    Tough to decide which slug it likes best.  Flings a 54gr at 930fps and a 65.5gr at 860fps.  I haven't been out to the club in months to really stretch it's legs, but it's very accurate at home w/ 75yds.

    I really like it a lot.  I'd like a little more speed tho.  Would love to have the 65.5gr at 950fps.  It'll go back to FX again for the PP upgrade when my turn comes.

    Here's the tune kit he put in it.

    I also got a shim (big delrin washer, .150" thick) to preload the spring a little more, but when my friend (the tuner) tried to install it, it wouldn't cock fully anymore so he had to take it back out.

     

     

    Raining like a cow pissing on a flat rock here today, tomorrow ain't looking good either.

    Interesting.  

     

    Weather permitting we get together on Wednesdays.  I'll give her another go and take pics of the groupings.

    I wish it were doing 16fpe, that would be 700fps.  As it is, w/ the 5.55mm it's only doing 610-620.  12.5fpe.

    Neighbor kid came over yesterday w/ his hundred buck gamo.  W/ the H&N Ø5.55mm his gun was flinging it at 740-750fps!  Holy smoke!  His scope was crap and wouldn't focus so I told him to swap the one off his other gun.  He ran out of time doing that so we didn't get a chance to see how accurate the gamo was. 

     

    For reference, my megabuck HW98 that's tuned and all that nonsense could only achieve 620fps on the same pellet.  It would go a little faster with a Ø5.54mm, but then the accuracy was crap.

     

    The gamo is about 2 yards long, but otherwise, for a hundred bucks seems to be showing well.  We'll find out how it does with accuracy next time.

    A couple friends came over yesterday and we shot in my back yard.

     

    First up was the HW98.  Determine to find out how it shoots.

     

    First was over the chrony.  The H&N Ø5.54mm went the fastest at 660fps.  The Ø5.55mm were in the 610-620s.

     

    Next up was accuracy.  Put the traps up at 25, 50 and 75yds.

     

    Started shooting at 25yds.  Totally unimpressive with the Ø5.54mm H&N.  Grouping about Ø2".  Then tried the Ø5.55mm and much to my surprise the groups were very good, about a dime size for 5 shots.  Repeated this on two different targets.  Even went back to the Ø5.54mm and got the same crappy grouping.

     

    OK, it likes Ø5.55mm.  Time for 50yds.  Everything fell apart at 50yds.  I could hit the trap, but barely keep it within the target.  Mucho dissappointment.

     

    Neighbor kid came over w/ his hundred buck gamo.  W/ the Ø5.55mm his gun was flinging it at 750fps!  Holy smoke!  His scope was crap and wouldn't focus so I told him to swap the one off his other gun.  He ran out of time doing that so we didn't get a chance to see how accurate the gamo was.

     

    At this point, I'm fed up with this HW98.  It's accuracy and performance is dismal IMHO.  Is anyone a known good tuner that can get some decent performance from it? Because I'm ready to send it to someone who knows how to get this megabuck gun to perform better.

    I have a Wika for my R5M.  Can't stand the edmu.  What are y'all using to get the gauge itself out of the pocket?  I've seen the vids on degassing, but not on getting the gauge out.

     

    Also, my gun refills very slooooooooowwwwwwwllllllyyyy.  Like 1bar per 5 seconds.  No, it's not the fill apparatus.  I asked Brian about it and he said it's an adjustment and sent a link to the standard youtube.  Nothing in there discusses changing the fill rate.  I get the feeling I'm bothering him when I ask questions so I'd rather not.

    I cleaned his gun with my new Patchworm kit.  Went until I ran out of cleaning patches.

    I think it was pretty dirty

     

    Much dirtier than my HW98 was when I cleaned it yesterday.

     

    Fed it some of the bigger head H&N pellets, but we ran out of daylight and I kept getting errors from the chrony.  Still, with the 5.53mm head pellets we got a couple readings in the 690s.  It was too dark by the time we got to the 5.54mm.

     

    We'll try some targets next time and see about it's accuracy.

    I got 2 packs of each slug for the Impact and I am going down to the club tomorrow and will be putting it thru the paces.  The Impact and a HW98 are going to get wrung out tomorrow.  Hopefully get to the bottom of all of it, the '98 has never behaved well.

     

    Supposed to be a sunny day, if a bit chilly.  Should be a lot of fun.  I'll report back what I find.

    Neil Clague made mine.  It's totally silent – hammer slap and target ring is the loudest part of firing it.  And awesome looking.  I might even be interested in selling it as he is making me a one piece shroud/LDC for it now.  It's finished and ought to be here next week.  If all goes according to plan I may be interested in selling the original LDC he made me.  Very pretty piece.  Here's a pic of the gun.

    Got my shipment from Pyramid.

    Stole the Athlon Argos off another gun and got that mounted.

    Cleaned the barrel and crown.  IMHO it was pretty dirty for something that hasn't been shot much.

    Tightened the screw a smidge.  It would fall under it's own weight, I tightened it enough so it'd hold where I put it.

    It's pouring cats and dogs out there so no chance to to much, but I did stick the chrony by the window and shot enough to know that the 5.54 seem the fastest at 660fps.

    Saturday, I go to the club and will get to test.  Supposed to be chilly, but sunny.  Hoping for a good day.
