    Thanks Mike and Jimmy!

    And yeah you better believe it Jimmy once I get those guns I'll be giving you a run for your money (hopefully 😁 ) in the 100yd competitions! Gonna be hard against that Boss! But there's a few months to practice before they start back up.

    Went out to the local outdoor range today, and here is the good news: (Disclaimers:  Pellets not sorted, sized, washed, or lubed.  All were straight from the tin) 

    The Royale 400 .22 shot the Hades 15.89 pretty good at 50 yards with 2-4 MPH, SW wind.  I have a pic showing 3 (5) shot groups, and the main reason why I wanted to shoot at 50 yards was just curiosity as to how they would do at 50 yards.   I forgot my JSB 18.1 pellets today, so I shot this on power level 2 @ 680 FPS average.  Then I re-zero'd at 35 yards because the squirrels behind my house are normally 30-45 yards and in the woods beyond my backyard.  I need to be careful at anything over 35 yards with the Hades as I don't want any runaways and I want humane first shot dispatches.  Good news is that at 35 yards I was able to manage one ragged hole (5) shot group at my 35 yard zero.  Rifle was dead on at 35 yards and one click hold under at 25 yards.  Feeling confident that I can have some good shot placement with the 35 yard zero and plenty of FPE with the Hades at 680 FPS.  

     

    The 35 yard re-zero is not shown, this was taken at 50 yards.  Top row, first 3 targets were HADES.  Bottom row was AA 16 grain, not good this time around.

     

    Bad News:  I then took out the RAW and struggled a bit with my 100 y ard BR shooting.  I have a Harris Bipod and a nice rear bag, so no excuses.  Again, none of the JSB 25.39g RD were sorted, washed, sized or lubed.  No wind flags, bad move again.  I just need to order some wind flags, and when I was 'patien't and could see the wind at 100 y ards was calm ( bushes directly behind target were still…); I could get a couple of X rings or at least touching.

    One magic group, two disqualified targets and (8) Five shot targets in all. 

    Target # 7 was my magic for today.

    Thanks for sharing Tom. I haven't tried the Hades. Most likely because I don't hunt, but If I was a hunter I would certainly give them a  try.

    Man that number 7 group was so close to making 50/50 and you would have had a sub inch group if it wasn't for that one pellet. Awesome work you're putting in. I have no doubt you'll be sub moa soon!

    Keep up the good work.

    I tried the jsb monster's agian, this time I used the pellet gauge,  much better results, she likes 4.52s. 5 shot group at 25 yards in the wind.

    Here is the first 25 of that former group.  100 more pellets didn’t change it much.

    No "magic" I knew this gun would do sub MOA at 100, only second time I ever shot air gun at 100yds, than only a few groups at a time 1.17" out of box, but after break in and doing "this and that" shot my first sub 1" hundred yd group .9", this Impact is perfect as far as I'm concerned, I thought it was easy and fun to achieve this level of performance, 25 and 50yds are no challange, just wanted to share my "first time" with you all who can appreciate this accomplishment….wife wasn't impressed.    One hole is 5shot 25yds, typical preformance other is my first, but not last, sub 1" 100yd air rifle group.

    Pretty nice shooting at 100, especially for 2nd time at that distance!  What caliber and pellet/slug ?

    Also, 50 yards is no slam dunk for most of us mere mortals.  I can get 1/2” groups, but not always especially with wind.  Ragged hole is rare for me as well, but I have done so once or twice. But, it’s me and not the guns. 😁 

    Nice job with the Impact.

    Impact X .25 with 700mm bbl, loves JSB 33.95MK2's, 880fps, polished liner, elongated probe and port and polished ID of breech, (turned out great), put orings on liner "fixed" trigger to suit me, installed C-3 delron washer plus the usual hsa adjustments and reg tweak, doesn't like any valve limiting adjustment, this surprised me, one hole at 25yds and .375 or better at 50, sub inch at 80, did this 3 groups in a row last summer,  I bought this Impact just to see for myself, (was used but like new) if all the hoopla was justified and for something to mess with it it broke, I'm retired, well the thing has "earned" it's way into my heart, preformance speaks for it's self and it's been "solid as a rock" so far, almost 2 years old, haven't shot the thing that much, it's too powerful for back yard and it very partial to the Mk2's all I can say negative about it.  If I keep at it I'm betting it will do .5 at 100, THAT would be a magic group!  The three groups are 80yd. I shot in a row last summer.

    Went to the range today and shot at 100 yards, no wind.  Tried the Nielsen Slug .22 sampler pack again, and I'm disappointed.  Shot the 23 and 24.8 grain slugs and they were not consistent and the JSB 25.39 RD shoots best in the RAW HM1000x .22 for me anyway.  Still, I did have a couple of solid scores, but trying to crack the MOA ( 1" or under ) barrier is proving to be very challenging for me.  All of these targets were shot with the JSB 25 RD.

    I will be looking forward to seeing that Impact .25 "shoot that .5" CTC and for NUAH score at 100 yards," as I can't seem to crack the 1" MOA challenge!

    Tom, don't feel bad brother. I'm in the same boat as you, I can't break moa with a .22.

    1.2" is my best group with .22 cal. so far.

    My long range shooting is on hold. The forestry service is clearing/thinning some lanes behind my house. Will have some 400 yd plus lanes pretty soon! LOL But I'll be sticking to 100 yds, as I don't feel I've mastered it yet?

    I have the utmost confidence you will shoot sub moa with the .25 Impact!

    thomasair, please send me your magic group rifle for verification of grouping ability, numerous tests must be performed, so gun will have to be in “MY” I mean test facility’s possession for some time…

    It’s nice to know that you ‘will eventually’ have longer distances to shoot from ( I.e., for paper or reactive targets), should you change your mind and stretch beyond 100 yards.  When that new ‘PCP Airgun of the future’ comes out in a year or two, we might see some Camp Fussel “nothing under 400 yard posts” with some impressive scores! 😂 

    For now I’m with you, in that 100Y is sufficiently enough of a challenge.  I do like looking at all the long range posts and videos from others, but I like observing from the keyboard.
