    Did a trade with a buddy of mine.  We've sold, bought and traded PCPs from each other before and we did a trade in which I got a bully.  I already have the original Hercules in 30 so I pretty much know what I'm getting.  He's a power junky so I know I will have to turn down the power.  Another 30 cal for long range plinking and maybe future hunting.

    BD, when shooting this Bully keep an eye out for scope rail flexing that stems from the bottle cover, to the barrel shroud clamps, and then onto the scope rail. Its worse when attaching a bipod to the pic rail underneath the bottle cover, and also may flex when resting the bottle cover on a sand bag rest. 

     

    Other than that, it’s an awesome rig. Enjoy!

    Wow blackdiesel that is an insanely powerful bullpup! Congratulations! Now if Hatsan could figure out how to make that rifle weigh 7 lbs. instead of 10 lbs. I would definitely be interested. I have always been a fan of Hatsan's power, accuracy, and designs, its just that with my bad shoulder most of their guns are just to darn heavy for me to hold up. My old BT65 weighed almost 10 pounds and then with a 26 oz. scope and mag full of pellets and full of air it was right at 12 pounds…it just wasn't fun to hold it up and shoot it for me.

    I'm going to hack off a long section of the scope rail and remove the bottle cover.  I can see it's a problem already.

    Ah…now you sound like me! Like you, I make these things fit me and don't worry about resale value…whatever I get for something later is irrelevant because I figure I got my money's worth in the amount of fun I had with it. To me this whole hobby and everything having to do with it falls under "Chuck's Entertainment Budget"! I refer to the difference between what I paid for something and what I sell it for later as my "Fun Tax"…so I don't hesitate to alter things to the way I like them.

    That is a big Improvement already! Did you weigh the cut-offs to see how much weight you subtracted? And one more comment… everytime I look at one of these Hatsan Bully's I find myself wondering how it would look with a fully skeletonized stock…

    Chuck – I didn't weigh it.  Big heavy guns are not a deterrent for me.  I have an original long Hercules and it weighs in at 13 lbs without the scope.   These are not the guns for trekking through the woods,  They are ambush hunters.  I mostly plink and I shoot off of a Caldwell magnum Fieldpod so the weight doesn't bother me in these situations.

    Would be interesting to know what the weight of those two pieces are that you cut off, kinda like the look and maybe do that with mine, without any adjustments I’m getting 994-996 through my chrono with it tethered and shooting 44 jsbs.

    And what is your group sizes at 50 & 100 yards at that velocity?

    I believe this is a 5 shots 50 yard I did with it last fall after I put the Ronin on it and zeroed it in.
