    Well, I took the time today to shoot my FX Royale 400 at all three power settings and I chronied the shots.

    My first three runs (tan colored charts) are with 14.3 gr pellets.  At the max power setting, then the med power setting and finally, the lowest power setting,  28 shots from each power setting

    My next two runs (blue colored charts) are with 21.3 gr pellets.  At the max setting and then at the med power setting.  12 shots from each power setting.

    Just for kicks, while I had the chrony set up, I did the Mrod .22 with the 14.3 gr pellets (green colored chart) – no wonder it kills the crap out of squirrels.  I only shot one 10-round mag.

    BTW, the chrony I used was the Caldwell G2 (kinda looks like it is up-side-down).  This was the first time I used its Bluetooth feature to pair it with my cell phone – Worked like a charm!  It was getting dim outside and I was starting to get “Error 3”.  Then, I remembered the unit was lights, so I turned them on and NEVER got an Error message again.  The lights really work.

    Have you done any accuracy test?  Also, where’s the pics of your new rifle?

    I really like the power settings on the Royal line. I use the low power setting for trigger control practice.

Accuracy test, no more than when I zeroed the scope.  I’ll put out a video later on, on the accuracy of the FX Royale 400.  But from what I experienced it is great.

    I’ll take some pics, too.

Didn’t thonk about using low power for trigger control practice – I’m thinking that’s about all the low power would be good for.  I sure don’t see myself shooting squirrels under low power, maybe starlings, House Sparrows and cowbirds, though.

    Don’t know where you live, but here in Massachusetts (I’m not a hunter) I’m relegated to the basement from Nov – March. Target shooting in the basement doesn’t take much power and with the pellet exiting the barrel more slowly on low power, trigger control and especially follow through become more important.

Hi, I live in Columbus, Ga.  I can pretty much shoot year round.  I’m only a hunter when I see a squirrel chewing up my bird feeders.  Otherwise, I shoot at paper and a variety of spinner targets.

    Also curious on accuracy when you get around to it. I like any post that a member puts time into testing as your doing.

That’s going to be my next test – Accuracy.

    I’ll start a new thread after I do the Accuracy Test.
