Nice Shot!!!  What velocity are you shooting and do you have numbers on the drop distance and time of flight?

Very impressive!

Thanks........I have shot 1000 yds since last year........Better gun and this year used smaller targets.....This warm weather that day, 85 gr spitzer at 1035 fps with 3300 psi........I have 300 moa scope rail and was around 260 moa. TOF is real close to 4 seconds.

It is a One Off, ground up CUSTOM BUILD.......Only thing Condor is a purchased STRIPPED CONDOR frame from AirForce, which included  trigger and breach. All else was sourced by me and Gunsmith did necessary machining, making pillars and bedding into benchrest stock and frame strengthing ......I do use a Doug Noble valve for the power......Without it, would be wasting time. Barrel is 34", 1.1" diameter from a Premium barrel maker that makes 1000 yd and benchrest rifle barrels for F-Class and High Power. Powder rifles and expensive.......As the gun sits in picture, is over $3,200. So it isn't a CONDOR  ???
Thanks for asking......................Carl

Flight time is closer to 4 seconds.........First shot yes BUT...........Was the first time at distance I ever did that.......Not visible behind   steel plate is a clay clod about softball sized. When  I first get set up, I fire rounds at it to see where dust kicks up and get close for elevation........THEN I drive down, set all up, targets, camera, ribbon flag on 1/4 " rod. Turn camera on and drive back to start filming and shooting.  I placed soda for perspective on the 24" plate as a small target for airgun and almost half what i used last year... After 20 min or more, wind is moved and so have to shoot a couple at dirt clod before on steel......Plan was to then take a shot or 2 at soda, then at the steel and  finish on soda.........Well first shot hit it.........Camera running so shot at steel. I just cut off soda part as a video and below this post is the rest titles 24" steel at 1000 yds........ Even when  I miss once dialed in that airgun is still amazing me even as hits all around it. I have been almost 2 yrs advancing long range with air.......

But am bored with them, .257's, they are in pieces and now going to do same with .45 TEXAN........

The barrels on rifle pictured and both my .257's are being made all the time......As blanks I order.......Gunsmith turns to fit into Condor Frame and chambers it.....

The barrel of which you refer, is only 24" long and I couldn't get it to shoot very well. couple of 1" groups but mostly 1.5-2 inches at 100 yds.........I offered to return it to company and they said keep it and thanks for testing it with air. I have it on my first Condor ........So no company isn't making to fit an airgun......It was given to me but Gunsmith had a $250 charge to me fitting and turning it down and chambering. And you can still buy one chambered and fitted from company to AR-15's and are $350.......

So it is a no go............Carl

X2?  I'd like to find something that long.  Last barrel I had that was 36" long was on my Sharps rifle in .45-140, custom BELL brass.  I too was shooting 1000yds, but with black powder loads.

From premium  barrel makers, and are LOT's of them in  USA.......I have Bartlein, Krieger, PacNor........Take your pic, they are all excellent, and will pay for them especially in added length .....
