Reply To: MORE WILDCAT EXPERIMENTS
Yes Robert I still feel the same way too, but I just had to find out if it was possible to shoot these Heavies at higher velocity and still be accurate. What got me started was a story I read about the modified Edgun modified to shoot at 60 fpe and wondered if I could get my Wildcat and Streamline to do that too. And discovered that not only will they do it, but they will shoot the MKII like lasers all the way up to 900 ft/s. Now I am hoping to see if I can get them to give me more shots to go along with the power…but there are no free lunches.
In the end I will more than likely set both of my rifles back down to around 830 ft/s, because I am only shooting paper it doesn’t matter how much energy the pellet has when it hits the target… as long as I have the kind of accuracy you now have I am a happy camper. But one of the other reasons for the 55-60 fpe experiments was to see what effect it would have on the size of my groups at 100 yards. I already shoot tighter groups than a lot of the guys with powder burners do, which feeds my onery side. Hee Hee! 😉
I am thrilled that you have reached that Zen moment of oneness with your Wildcat which is the epiphany of all shooters I think.
Always the best, Chuck
