.30 cal Mrod first (recovered) kill
« on: May 29, 2016, 07:33:11 AM »
Well I have to work today so I figured why not bring the .30 out today and test her out. Changed the tune up alittle to a 3000psi fill for 20 shots from 840-865-840. Got a dove at about 35yds. Unreal the damage these .30s can do

Great way to test the gun out.
Buncha BB guns that I don't get to shoot as much as I like. Building duck boats now that I'm "retired".

Better than you'd think. Out of 17 shots I've only missed 2-3 times from 25-65 yds from sparrows to pigeons. The barrel seems to be breaking in nicely. Needless to say with sparrows it's more just finding pieces of them  :o

The only suggestion I have is, send it out to WAR, and have it properly massaged by Mr. Scraggly Beard! I only say this, because it is wirier than yours!
