Title: 1000 yd Accuracy-.45 Texan-Video
Post by: rifle 50 on December 15, 2017, 10:27:08 PM
Shot this first part of October 2017.  People ask why don't you show firing of gun......I do here 2 shots full screen and then attempt to have Pic in Pic showing firing and camera at impact. IMO small portion is useless as target so far away one sees nothing.......Except staying on scope at least 4 seconds to see dust if hitting dirt??  Also at end give perspective of me standing beside that 24"  wide plate..... Pretty small for target with an airgun at 1000 yards believe me...........

Comments welcomed................Carl

Thank You. I have to admit after shooting powder rifles 67 years and started a quest for LONG RANGE AIR POWERED,  it even amazes me what a single PUFF OF AIR can do.......It wasn't easy or cheap getting there but is possible. Inputting my MAX air pressure  values in ballistic software, THE MAX RANGE MY GUN WILL SHOOT A SLUG, specifically my 412 grain with bbl at 35* elevation the bullet carries downrange to 2539 yds or 1.44 miles, and reaches a height of over a mile at 5340 ft and TOF is 37 seconds. Just info of what is POSSIBLE. Probably couldn't drop into an acre of land but I find it interesting anyway..........Thanks for commenting...
