    I can shoot 1 inch groups at 75 yds (2 mil-dots) and sub inch groups at 50 yds. with my bulldog. I have not shot at 100 yds. A friend gave me an old .357 mold made by Ideal to cast  my own bullets(165g) and this bullet shoots a tighter group than the factory  Noslers(2inches @ 50yds) developed for this AG or JSB pellets(1.5 [email protected] 50 yds.).  I was fortunate to find this bullet mold. You want to use as close to 100% lead as you can find when you cast you own bullets for a big bore airgun due to chambering and lower velocities. I also like the  versatility of the Bulldog.  I plink with the JSB pellets and hunt with the cast bullets.  Crosman honors discount codes when purchasing a Bulldog.

    Did you have to mod anything to get it to shoot that good or is that out of the box

    Mine is stock and shoots 75 yard within a 2 inch group with nosler
    It doesn’t like jsb that much though.

    The dioblo is OK but doesn’t group like I think it should. But one thing I noticed is the groups seen to tighten up towards the end of the power curve I get some time I think I will start at 2500 psi and run the pellets at lower pressure. See if it will tighten up some

    Mine is stock with no modifications other than bipod. The .357 bullet I shoot is cast with pure lead and loads in the breech like butter much better than the Noslers.  It’s also a lot cheaper to shoot. I recharge the AG after every clip (5 shots) if I’m shooting at 50- 75yds. for accuracy. The JSBs are fun to shoot, easy to load and I get about 10 good shots with them.  More if I’m just plinking.  Hope you’ll like your Bulldog. Mine out shoots my Texan and my brothers Texan  much to his chagrin. It’s not as powerful as a Texan but I shot a pressure treated 2×4  with it and the cast bullet went through it like tissue paper at 50 yds.  It’s also not as loud and uses less air. 
    Have fun,
    Kev

    It isn’t a benchrest gun and never will be. It’s a hunting gun. You’ll hit you kill zone with no issues but don’t expect hole on hole accuracy.

    With proper slugs and kill zone shots the Bulldog will do it with no problem.
    Like anything you need to practice, do penetration tests and slug deformation comparison.
    Do boiler plate shot tests with 1/4 plywood backed with foam and a good soft backstop. You can look online about how to make your own Ballistics gel.

    I’ve seen videos of people shooting ballistics gel jsb seem to have better penetration then the Nosler

    Penetration isn’t the only factor you need to consider.
    Think of it this way, which would kill faster? An ice pic or a knife?
    When a bullet expands it creates a larger wound channel destroying more tissue around the area.
    Something that seems to always be missed about kpe figures is that it does no good if it is not delivered.
    The best ballance is a penetration into the center of the body cavity where it will dump all the remaining kinetic energy in hydrolic shock damaging vital organs.
    Air Guns, Black Powder And Archery all kill much in the same way primarily through loss of blood and secondary organ damage.
    Consider a boilerplate shot? What is the bullet going to encounter on impact. Skin then perhaps a rib, then an cavity basically with soft tissues this is where you want maximum expansion and cutting force.
    I’m not trying to make it more complicated sorry

    Thought I’d give you guys a little update I had my Bulldog for 3 or 4 days now did a 55-yard test had a half inch 3 shot group shooting from shooting sticks so not too bad for being that it’s a little wobbly in my opinion with the jsb 82 grain

    3 shot 1/2 inch group at 55 yards is good for any gun. Any pictures of groups and/or gun?

1/2 group at 55 yards is pretty impressive in my book.  I said above not to expect hole-on-hole accuracy…maybe I’m just a crappy shooter.
