    I'll start this thread by saying that I had a great day of shooting with my buddy Dave. The RedWolf came out to hills and made its debut … Davy got to set-up his hot-rod Condor and we both blasted a bunch of paper with our Wildcats.

    RedWolf  – although I wanted to shoot 3 weights of pellets, today, I focused on sighting in and getting to know both the gun and my new scope.  I used the JSB Jumbo Monsters Redesigned 25.38 gr.  The velocity averaged 940 fps with a low of 920 over 75 shots.  240 bar fill down to 165 (I think).  

    Pics of today's fun.

    Quick shout out to the team @ AoA.  Darren for the hat, Richard for being a cool sales guy and Kip for sharing his shooting experiences! 

    I'll stretch the RedWolf out to 100yrds next week…  more to come

    Man, how long is this thing with the Hugget? I am trying to get one, but the length reminds me of Royale 500.

    It is so quiet. None of my fx guns I've owned in the past(all.25) can compare to the quietness of my daystate red wolf.22. Low power me and my friend were questioning if it shot at all lol.

    @d-rig – the action is so smooth it's mind boggling… you can get shots off very quick.  I bought the bench from Northern Tool.  It was a suggestion from another AGN member.  Very stable, compact, and secs to set-up.  I really like it.

    Here's the link:  https://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/product_200700133_200700133

    @nsw18 – For the 1st half of the day, I shot with the Hugget off.  Gun is 45" in length.  With the Hugget on it's by far the quietest gun that I ever shot.  Overall length 51 3/4".  No point of impact changes with it on or off.   I should add, with the Hugget off, the gun isn't that loud at all.  I'd say medium loudness at most.

    @fukochan – ?

    @oregun, thanks for the update. I currently have a DS Renegade .25 (not the HP model), the gun is super quiet and loves the electronics trigger, which is what makes me so intrigued in getting a Red Wolf. It sure sounds like a 22HP RedWolf, is okay without the Hugget.

    How hard is it to remove the clamps from the table? And your link shows a yellow table but yours appears red. Did northern tool update the color?

    @maineiac – the clamps store neatly in the bottom shelf, simple to remove.  If you look closely, you can see them in my pic. 

    As far as color, I have no clue.  Best to give them a call.

    I finally found some time to shoot my Redwolf HP.  I had to clear my 50y shooting lane… & its been HOT!

     

    Each target is 5 shots.  The lower row is LOW power, middle row is MID power, and upper row is guess what… HIGH power.  JSB 25.4g Redesigns (the original 25.4g Monsters shot good, but not as good).

     

    I reprogrammed some of my settings.  I was aiming for 920, 940, 960fps because I've heard the HP .22 likes to send them fast.  And I got pretty close:

    LOW: 909

    MID: 937

    HIGH: 960

    Low and mid power felt really crisp.  On high power I felt like I was loosing a bit of harmony.

     

    I was also testing different holds throughout.  Not sure if its just me but my Redwolf seems to like a firm shoulder & moderate fore-grip.  Anybody else experience this?

    Hi Michael. Great groups. I don’t have a RedWolf but  interested in the bc of the .22 redesigned monsters?

    Thanks

    Thanks

    I was curious too


    Daaangggg… Mikey likes that BC!  Note – I redid the chart to reflect the proper distances V0-V50 (0,10,20,30,40,50y).  I calculated BC by inputing the near distance 0 yards and far distance 50y into Chairgun. 

    Can someone ✔️ my results?

    I think you used 50 yards but your chart shows 40 yards. I still get .0629 for the high power shot using 40 yards.

    Sorry that should say V0-V50 (0,10,20,30,40,50y) like this:

    I've only got 50 yards on my lot.  I'll have to go to my hunting permission to get 100 yard results. Which should provide even more data.

    How far from the muzzle was V0? Because only dropping 3 FPS in the first ten yards doesn’t seem correct. So I think I’d use the 10 and 50 (or 75 or 100) to calculate the BC.

    V0 is 12" in front of the muzzle.  I used V0 & V5 for the starting & ending distances.

    I understand. What I’m suggesting is that a loss of only 3 FPS from 1 foot to 10 yards doesn’t pass the common sense test. Do the calcs from 10 to 50.  Or 20 to 40. Or 30 to 50. The calculated BCs are close. But when you use your 960 at zero it seems to not agree with all the other calculated BCs. Not saying you’re wrong, just that to me I’ve never seen the pellet almost not slow at all in the first ten yards. Plug it into ChairGun or Strelok Pro. Then use the table to show pellet speed every 5 yards from muzzle to 50 yards. It shows a proportional reduction in velocity every five yards. See what I mean? Not a big deal. I want a LabRadar for Christmas. I think they’re great. And if the BC is .063 or .070 it’s still better than the .25 Heavy or the .30 Heavy.

    Glad you finally released the Wolf …  nice groups!

    As far as the firm shoulder and grip, I'm so glad you mentioned it.  The last time I had mine out, I said to my buddy Dave, "look, this thing jumps… watch the rear bag."   He thought I was nuts.  Yes, firm shouldering makes a difference.  

    I'll have some 50/75/100yrd practice time this Sunday.  I'll post the results.
