    I find shooting these stupid water filled cans enjoyable, probably because of the report from the exploding can. 

    Video clarity is not very good.  The 38gr. slugs at 936 FPS do shoot good at this range.

    Excellent shooting, isn’t it amazing what you can do with an airgun these days?! You could really hear the impacts. Good job 👍

    It is so hard to believe that an air gun can reach that distance and have complete accuracy.  I'm amazed at 100 yard shots but 173 yards is way outside my thinking.  When you look back at the Daisy BB gun of the 50's and 60's the sport has surely taken a turn far reaching from where it started.  Great video and great shooting as well.

    7 for 7  at 173y 😳

    I have a  big old dead tree that is the same distance from my back door. It’s a long way…. Wow

    Very consistent, the vertical is pretty small!

    What is the start BC on those slugs at that velocity?

    Glad everyone got what I wanted to show.

    A .25 cal. with a little more power than a stock "pellet" gun can be surprisingly consistent at longer ranges. 

    The BC ?    –  I shot at 3 yards 931 FPS  and at 100 yards 798 FPS recently through the chrony.  – .089  Not sure.

    Very interesting! Cricket has choked CZ barrel. What slugs and of what diameter did you use?

    I put a post on AGN a few months ago about this gun – My slug gun build – .35 cal. converted to .25 cal. with an index-able barrel. 

    I have a stock Cricket .25 cal. BP that shoots a 30.5gr. slug "very" accurate. But it won't deliver the power or consistency I get with this gun. 

    .250" slugs using Corbin swaging press.
