    . This is THE group that made a FWB believer out of me . It was like 8O° No wind and I was on top of my game for a change :). . My first group shot with my HW30. It blew my mind , the little tiny thing is a push pin

    Wow, those are some pretty epic groups. This is the best that I have pictures of. 2 on the edge are figuring out hold and windage. The rest is a 5 shot group at 20yds. Crossman phantom 1000 with rws superdomes.

    I stopped shooting for about a year and just picked ot back up. Hopefully Ill have some better groups this weekend.

    I own a Gamo Whisper Fusion Elite, its my first springer and I haven’t really shot it because I believe on a windless day I could through the rifle and hit the target better than it shoots with me on the trigger.

    Looking at your groups I think I might have another go at using the gun.

    I am not sure but I think the group that Joe posted was with the Walther LGU, 5 shots at 50 yds.

    Joe… what pellet were you using in the top pic of the group, the 40 shot one?  JSB 8.44?  I likes dat.

    Lots of talking, but very few groups. Let’s go, guys; pony up! Don’t let Joe scare you away with his 50 shot @ 40 yd. group.

    Here are a few of my recent groups with the TX200:

    From the bench @ 25 yds. factory setup. Butt of the rifle was unsupported, 5/16″ groups are common:

    From the bench @ 40 yds., factory setup, as above, but 7/16″ group. The other groups were zeroing as I shot:

    14 yds. (the length of my basement) field target position. (sitting on the floor, resting rifle on my knees) 3/16″, 5-shots.

    The above groups were all stock. Here’s some after the Vortek 12 FPE kit was put in. Probably not broken in yet. That, or it prefers other pellets now, which I’ve not tested. 5/16″ AA Diabolo Field. This was probably shot before it was broken in, as I feel like it’ll do a lot better now.

    In stock form, this rifle was as buzzy as could be, and felt a little “grindy” when cocking. But still accurate! Now, it feels better, but doesn’t shoot as well. Lemme shoot another couple hunnert rounds and try again.

    . Here’s a more recent group . I have had a couple nice groups with the 7.33 and 8.4 JSB but almost all my best groups are the 10.3 heavies. I had one of those ” magic tins ” of AirArms Falcons that were spooky but only the one time every since the others shoot well but not like that again

    Nice shots Joe.

    With that kind of accuracy, I think hunting is not out of the question; head shots on everything.

    How ’bout mixing it up a little and shooting from some field positions? One one knee, seated from knees, standing offhand.

    Me, on the other hand… I will try shooting from the bench next chance I get. I can do it in the basement (14 yds.) any evening, but it’ would probably be just one hole that’s hard to measure. Probably at the range Saturday, before the match.

    As for the magic tin of Falcons, is it possible it was a magic state of tune for the gun? Maybe you shot that group, then tinkered with it next week and disturbed something in that perfect mechanical system.

    Nay man my ass is too lazy to get up off that bench !! No really tho, the thing that paralyzed my eye ( Bells Palsy ) also paralyzed two nerves in my inner ear so I have like Vertigo problems . Picturing getting off the Merry go Round and picking up a gun :) It not a huge deal but it’s something I can handle well if I have a bench to kinda lean against . At times I’m like the town drunk ..lmao
    There are upsides tho , one shot of cough syrup and I’m falling on my ass , and the Main upside is Chicks dig Pirates …It a fact look it up !

    I’m waiting for the miraculous day of decent shooting!!   I can get 10 shots in a dime size hole at 10 meters…But that’s merely average.

    Use this type of target Smaug. And it won’t be one hole. Use it at 14 yards and it will tell you if your rifle is shooting straight?

    Nice shooting guys! Just shot this size-of-a-pigion-brain group about 5 minutes ago. 16.4 yards or 15 meters, standing off-hand position, 25 pellets, diopter sights (no scope on this baby). Weapon of choice; my 40-year old FWB300S. For comparison a .177 flat head pellet on the bottom left part on the card. Not my best shooting, but it’s so damn hot today.

    Thanks Joe. That 50-shot group of yours at 40 yards, was that with the standard springs? No flyers, perfect grouping mate!

    Yes it was with the springs I got from Neil stepp . They are original FWB . Mine is very picky on sprigs …I had a single spring that was a good one but I have had my best luck with the double ones . But the margin is small
