Reply To: MORE WILDCAT EXPERIMENTS
I almost forgot to tell you guys what else I did last Thursday with my Wildcat! I had an idea to tweak something to see what would happen and the result was that my velocity instantly went from an average of 850 ft/s to an average of 878 ft/s! This equals 58 fpe! You guys have heard me talk about pellet on pellet accuracy at 50 yards before…so let me show you how accurate the MKII’s are at 878 ft/s at 50 yards. These pictures show three pellets fused together where you will see each one hit directly on top of the one before it in the plywood. The scale shows how much the three MKII’s weigh. Target pictures can be easily faked, so rather than show you pictures of a hole in the target paper and hope you believe me when I say my Wildcat is “one pellet hole accurate”, I thought it would be better to show you this. But please don’t take my word for it…try it and see for yourself.
And by the way, at this average velocity of 878 ft/s, 58 fpe, I am getting 40 full power accurate shots before she falls off the reg…my Streamline is shooting at an average velocity of 876 ft/s, 58 fpe, and is getting 36 full power accurate shots before she falls off the reg.
Always the best, Chuck
This is what “Stacking Pellets” looks like!
Edit: I have been asked if these pellets were weighed and sorted…and the answer is yes they were cleaned in Acetone, weighed and sorted according to weight, and lubed with Napier Power Pellet Lube. These MKII pellets all weighed 33.8 grains.
