    Just started testing this new wildcat. 30 with 700 mm barrel. Unboxed cleaned barrel and shot approximately 80 rounds to seat new amp reg and get chrony numbers. This gun has amazed me on it accuracy! Above pic is four shots at 79y. Have not tested more than a week but it's performance is making me very happy. It out shoots my other four FX products.  They hold 3/4 @ 80y. With some fliers.  This seems to shoot like this consistantly. Thought I would put up a post for any of you interested.

    Awesome group for that distance! What happened to the 5th shot?

    I talked with him on the phone last night.  That wasn't the only shooting he did.  The results were all the same….one ragged hole.

    So when he shot this group and the pellets were stacking like that, he just stopped for the day.

    Yes I may be converted from shooting .25 heavies! I will stay with this new wildcat and decide. There has been a fair amount of animals taken but I did not post this in hunting.  Any one wondering I just want to reiterate it's accuracy and is super quiet operation  just astounds me.

    Looks like a real shooter!!!

    I'm interested in knowing if anyone has messed with that AMP reg as far as bumping it up for a little more power. 

    I know Chuck was getting crazy power with the Huma but what's the stock reg capable of?

    Concerning amp reg I have not touched it yet till the gun is stable. I have a Huma test gauge I will install to monitor the reg. Here is a wildcat MK1 that I modified a while back to monitor the Huma during shot strings and overnight creep checks.

    I'm very tempted to modify the stock on my syn. Crown so I can remove the stock without removing the HST adjuster, the way you did with the Huma regulator guage.  Just a little scary to start that cut!

    The FX synthetic stocks are soft and easy to work with a Dremel tool. No worries start small and keep opening it up.

    Very nice!
    I didn't think about using the brass bleeder screw as a point to install a reg gage! Great idea!

    Chuck at 50 yards I still have 50 foot pounds when those anemic pellets hit these Coons between the eyes all I see is feet sticking up in the air.  Presently I think I will hold off on adding more power I have 30 good shots and super accuracy at 80 yards

    Monkeyshine to clarify my earlier remark when I said, "I thought 830 ft/s was rather anemic for a .30 caliber rifle" what I meant was that 69 ft lbs of energy out of a .30 caliber rifle is anemic compared to say an FX Boss .30 caliber which produces 78-80 ft lbs of energy with the same pellets. My rifle in its current configuration is getting 86 ft lbs energy and super accuracy at 100 yards. But I agree that 69 ft lbs is adequate to kill raccoons if that is your pleasure.

    Best regards, Chuck

    You say 50 full power 86 fl lbs from 300 cc cylinder? Can you show chrony results?
