    Took her out to the back 40 for a zero at 50 yards and aside from the two flyers (3rd and 8th shot), not bad seeing as how 9 of the 14 shots were within 3/4″ of each other.

    I think I will get one of those .177 pellet gauges from pelletgage.com to weed out the 2 flyers and the 3 shots that were just out of the 3/4″ target circle . Anyone else have one?

    i would strongly sugest that you give that beautiful rifle (with top notch acsessories btw :) ) some different food (pellets lol) 
    either h&N baracuda or jsb exact or exact heavy
    mutch less chance to get flyers with such pellets , and can allmost promise you a monumental improvement in grupe size :)
    also might be a good idea to have the rifle cronographed .. if its shooting to hot it will allmost guaranteed overpower the pellets and make them unstable in flight .

    would be cool to see a scope cam fotage :D   

    happy shooting

    JSBs are en route from Pyramid Air. As it stands now until they get here, it is if I have a 2015 Corvette Stingray and am putting 87 octane gas in it and cheap Walmart store-brand oil…lol.

    I am certain that the group will tighten up with the JSBs. Still am looking at getting the pellet gage though, as my goal is to get a 3/4″ shot group at 100 yards from this rifle.
    That being said though, still not a bad shot group from non-washed, non-gaged, off-the-shelf, Walmart-bought Crosman pellets.  
    PS: The scope cam footage is there. Just click the video link.

    I have done a review on the pellet gauge in the reviews section here. Scroll down you should find it.

    I think you’ll tighten up your groups but I’d be happy with that with a new gun. Hope to be shooting my 22 Cricket in a couple weeks… or less. Would you explain what camera set up you have? I’ve ordered 8 different pellets to try out. I’d like to use a heavy weight pellet just for the knock down energy for hunting but accuracy is more important to me. I will be zeroing in at 50 yards too . I can’t wait to get started!

    Ditto to the 10.34 for the pellet of choice in the .177 Cricket. One nice thing I found with the Cricket line is that with the same scope and mounts they can all behave remarkably alike. This being the .177, .22, and the .25.  Using the Hawke 6.5X20, along with Leapers/UTG med mounts I’ve zeroed all these at 18 yards. This gives you a secondary zero of right at 50 with 930FPS on the .177/10.34 JSB  900FPS with the.22/18.13 JSB 875FPS with the 33.95JSB Having approximately the same trajectory all you need to do is compensate in inches for the approximate 3/4″ hi in the 30-40 yard range. for shorter ranges it works out to a hold under about 3/8″ at 15 yards, 1″ at 10 and 1 3/4″ at 5. these are close enough approximations, and have worked with all calibers in hunting situations. I have the scope info either taped to the gun, and or a range book with the clicks needed in 5 yard intervals. Gotta love Chairgun
