    Decided to try my two groundhog hunting rigs at 100 yards today for accuracy. I probably would never try shooting groundhogs at this distance unless it was dead calm and with head shots of course. Any way I was curious to see how the two rifles would do. There was a little wind to contend with and for whatever reason my click charts did not match up so I ended holding some for windage and elevation. The Condor with the Eun Jin pointed pellets did not do well however the Wildcat did very well in my opinion. Bill

    Nice shooting, am wondering why you would be shooting pointed pellets if dome pellets where more accuracy for your Condor?   I know even dome pellets will pass clearly thru ground hogs at 50 yards FAC airgun (in .22 Cal 18 grain pellets).

Ginuwine I don’t know if you read and saw my pellet penetration testing video through 3/8″ plywood into modeling clay. In that test the Eun Jin pointed pellet out penetrated the Eun Jin domes by almost a factor of two. I limit most of my groundhog shooting to around 50 yards and at that distance the Eun Jin points will easily hold a 1/2″ group. As I mentioned in the video the wind can really move a pellet around at 100 yards. With the light wind in the video it was still moving the pellets 2 1/2”s horizontally. It is just too chancy to take long shots with any significant wind blowing. The other factor I believe the pointed Eun Jin pellet with its great penetration with allow for less that ideal shots taken on an angle to a groundhogs head. I believe if you hit a groundhog with an less than perpendicular to side of the head using dome pellets they tend to deflect off the skull. Bill
