A quickie shoot with the .308
« on: March 25, 2018, 08:41:37 PM »
Got the itch and decided to buck the wind and see what I can do. Nothing spectacular, but between weather and work I haven't been able to get much shooting in. I just filled up to 3000 on the bottle tethered and ran a shot string starting at 125 yards and finishing at 200 yards. The pics are below. Nothing extraordinary, but it's somewhat where I am at now accuracy-wise until I find something else ($$$) that will take me to the next level.

Each group is 3 shots with the exception of the 150. My first shot hit low and it irritated me  ;D  I ended up shooting five at 150 because I walked in with the first two. I have two groups on two separate targets at 200. I didn't take any other shots before or after and called it a day. So that being said I'm really confident now that I can pick that thing up and know my holdovers with confidence. I've been waiting to get to a level where I can take coyote at 200 yards  reliably and I'm there now.

the pics are 125, 150, 175, 200, 200 respectively

My 9 mm Freedom won't shot that good at 75 yards! I be impressed!

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.

After seeing all of the videos and pictures of what these larger caliber airguns  can do..... I am starting to develop an appetite for one.

I'm going to have to see what I can do to get my wife to increase my allowance.

I have been of the opinion that the Air Force guns are ugly, but the more I see of the Texans the more I am starting to like them.

Steelhead's Texan has a nice aftermarket stock that makes it way more comfortable. I believe it's a MadDog Stock.
