    Well, so much for my self-confidence – now I feel like my groups look like Rosie O’Donnell farted a tin of 500 through a target.

    To be fair, I shoot without any stabilization.

    If by ” stabilization ” you mean beer …Then load up and come to east Texas first rounds on me …
    Johnny my gun is basically made to do that kinda stuff, with a normal springer at 20 yards you need a trash can lid to cover my groups .

    Amazing shooting Joe! I logged in to post some groups but now I think I should go back outside and try again. Guess I’ll post them anyway. I’ll try to up my game tomorrow.

    Thanks! But I don’t think they’re great lol.. Those were shot scoped from a Caldwell bag. Still trying to keep my hold the same for each shot. I think I will try some heavier pellets. Thought the H&N 10.56’s would do the trick but the 7.9 CHP’s shot better, the 13.6 JSB’s didn’t shoot well.

    From what I read shooting at 850 fps or so is best for accuracy. The 7.9’s were chronied in the 1100’s so maybe a heavier pellet will bring that down. I don’t have a chrony those number came with the gun from PA.

    Any advice on pellets would be welcomed. I’m already window shopping other guns but I want to give this one a fair shake.

    I’ve not done much target shooting lately and only shot today at 21 yards. I don’t shoot much anymore at the same spot but the bottom left bulleye is 11 shots same POA. And I was chasing the wind that was driving me crazy but not doing a very good job of it)  Oh yea this was one of my FWB300s .177

    Thats some excellent shooting. Shooting well with an air rifle is a lot harder than I thought it would be.

    Picked up a couple new pellets for testing. Rifle is my youngest son’s FWB 300S Junior with factory diopter sights
    Groups of five, shot at 10 meters, indoors off my red-neck bench. Chrony specs are H&N Finale Match light 7.87gr——557fps…11es 3sd
    Definitely not a powerhouse, but in that 10 meter rifle sweet spot.
    Videoed the JSB Exact Express and the H&N Diabolo Express. The other two were H&N Match Pistol(4.50 head) and H&N Finale Match Light.

    This is a Springer, so I will just drop it this thread. Hope I don’t offend any Pirates out there.

    This video is about testing accuracy of my new pellets with different air guns and a bit about eye safety. Lord knows I need eye protection with those red-neck backstops.

    Double checked my records and it is shooting H&N Match Pistol 7.56gr 4.49mm at 441fps.

    Frank I was honestly on the verge of tearing my gun back down right there on the spot yesterday. My buddy Mikes shooting range is almost NEVER affected by the wind.
    But yesterday we had a very unusual North wind and it was playing hell with my shooting.
    Sure enough soon as the wind layer down…It ” Miraculous ly ” started grouping :)

    Had nice shooting weather today in Rougemont, NC after a couple weeks of wind and cold so I went to my “out back” shooting lane to check out the holdover marks on my scope AO. Real comfortable weather with light consistent wind. LOL, normally the winds at my lane are variable and swirling but almost calm today. I shot my HW95 sitting on a bucket while resting the gun on cross sticks and was testing out my recently sized batch of die “B” cpls that had the heads reduced to 4.48mm and the batch was weighed so all pellets shot were between 8.00 and 8.04 grains.

    When checking out the 30 yard zero I noticed that I was grouping really well so after shooting a few groups at intermediate distances I moved out to 50 yards and shot one of the best (or luckiest) 5 shot groups to date which was about 7/16″ctc. Here are a couple pics………
