« on: March 22, 2017, 09:44:57 PM »
First time firing beyond one try at 225 yds......Modifications and more to come.....Horribly windy day but no problem knocking of the NRA REGULATION 50 lb Rams-half inch steel......

It is the real deal. Made for competition........Used in the F-TR  Class shooting prone. It is a DUPLIN....Google Duplin Rifles and is available...$350.........Stable, adjustable for elevation and rifle cant and has SKI'S for feet that slide,  instead of rubber knobs that GRAB and JUMP on recoil . I had it already for competition and adapted to fit on TEX.......Has quick release to remove/install in seconds....Perfect shooting from a bench or prone off tight knit nylon floormat.......

Thanks for comment............Carl

Nice shooting :o as always. It's always great to see those, such as yourself, that push the boundaries of conventional thinking in the airguns that we all enjoy...Pumping out some impressive power..655fpe, if calculations are correct then your shooting your 382 gr bullets around 880fps then?

How long is the barrel on your .45?

Thank you for taking the time to video your results and posting them,

Thanks.......Your figures are correct.......Barrel is the STOCK Lothar Walther and is 34" long.....I ordered another PREMIUM BARREL 5 months ago this week and was 5 month lead time so may be here soon. Knowing how good the  Stock bbl is NOW, probably would NOT have ordered it. The FACTORY VALVE has been modified to get this power but at 3800 psi has bent 2 stems.  I have another valve made already, NOT THE AAO one, and has been tested and stem is also made from stronger steel. Builder wants it for  a week or so  more measuring things before I RECEIVE it. This will allow safe use of the MAX PSI from CF BOTTLE.....But that is just to see what the max this platform will give. As guns sits, It will  give me about the same MOA needed as my .257's did and I will shoot it when it all dries out to 1000 yds. According to all ballistic programs, will go there now. I have the 300 moa scope mount to dial it to what elevation I need.....I have 15 molds.......Below are the bullets I make...newest one isn't in pic........22 Long Rifle Round for comparison.......143 round ball to 500 grains.  One used in video, 382 is 3rd from right.
