Reply To: Huge difference in fall between 2 pellets
I’ll give those pellets a try sometime.
As it happens, my Chinese-made Ruger has much potential but is known to leave the factory lacking quality checking – Bobbed here suggested a good old makeover, everything got tightened, an o-ring got padded.. and she’s been a different rifle since.
I’ve also come to realise that it jumps around like mad when firing – the ‘artillery hold’ (loose grip, letting the gun do it’s thing) isn’t really an option, so I’ve learned that really pulling the stock firmly into the shoulder is a must. I suspect that the heavier pellet might have been affected by this differently somehow.
So yeah – you are clearly 100% right in calling springers ‘weird’!
