If you mark the video as Private and post the link for us here you'll avoid the issue with getting strikes. I know its a bs compromise, but......

Allow me to give you a suggestion.

It appears you've already discovered kitchen flour to make a large hit detection area as it shows up much better than plain old dirt. This said, if you want to be able to tell when you really hit the bucket(s), make a trip to Hobby Lobby (or on line). Buy some fluorescent tempera paint like that used for finger painting. Fluorescent green works well when used with the flour. A pint bottle is about $3, and will effectively color about 20 gallons of water.

My favorite airgun is a WAR Cobra in .25 caliber. It isn't what one would call a long range airgun. But shooting out to the lake has given me an appreciation of just how far an airgun can shoot. Sort of a safety warning issue if nothing else.

By the way, good shooting.

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.

Thanks........With my 257 and the Texan, I have shot 1000 yds or more many times and have vids of having done it............I plan no more at Real Long Distance.........That Range I go to has Steel to 554 yds and I concentrate from there inward as it is way more useful as These LONG range was to prove what can be done but isn't realistic  to keep doing it but to just say you did it. 3 years a friend and I raked and weed eater cleaned a 50'x50' area to see impacts and last year said I would NOT DO THAT AGAIN. To old, crippled up and need grass  down to see air impacts.

Thanks again.............Carl
