100 yard .25 50 grain bbt
« on: December 26, 2016, 04:21:49 PM »
Couple of tries at 100 yards with .25 bbt 50 grain out of my ace. I was hoping to get some more shooting in over the Christmas weekend but, no go. Hopefully next weekend I can get home, weigh and sort some out and try for some better groups. These are shot from my range bag as a front rest, 4x16 bushnell scope. These bbt really have my attention, and I'm finding that I really like shooting longer distances. I'm also going to try the .357 bbt at 100 yards. At 50 yards its a big hole with either when I'm having a good day. Someone with a steady hand and a better rest could really do these justice.

On those days where the wind is still (and I haven't had a lot of coffee!), one inch groups are common when shooting my WARized Marauder .25 shooting 26.4 grain AirArms pellets. I suspect most airguns can duplicate the feat. The real bugbear is the shooter, and it appears you've overcome that! For me, age has snuck up on the old nerves, and I can't do what I used to do except think about it. A lot!

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

Man I miss my marauder, and may still put one together. I hear you on the age thing. I now have a hereditary shake in my hands. I drive cargo all over the US and coffee is my constant friend. I've learned not to drink it on the days I shoot. Also learned over Christmas I can take l-theonine( amino acid in green tea) or a magnesium before shooting may help the shakes. I'm going to try it next weekend. I shoot between shakes and heartbeats :o. So I figure if what I'm shooting is decent, someone else could do awesome.
