What kind of a house is that for a dairy farmer? I'm used to peeling paint, a million flies, fifteen pairs of rubber boots by the door, piles of bailing twine for landscape, at least 5 stinky dogs laying around, and a dead calf next to the dumpster.

I have to get out of California. Congrats on the Cobra!

That is the house of a slacker dairy farmer for sure.  Must be one of those RICH farmers.  Sleeps until lunch, reads a report or two, calls Bill and tells him to "Take care of it" so he can go hunting or fishing. 

Nice gun.  I need to upgrade mine.

Just like the one I've owned for several months. And Martin may be wrong, because if you love it like I love mine, it will never be sold!!

I live a mile down the road from the dairy. My house used to be 1 acre of trees about 80 Italian prune trees and no yard. 3yrs later we just got everything finished. I cut down every tree myself and used tractors to pull up the stumps and roots and can't even begin to count how many hours between myself and my family. Definitely not rich just a wife with specific tastes. House is 40yrs old as well. Should have seen it when we got it definitely wasn't this nice but for as cheap as we got it it was perfect.

We also keep our dairy clean as well. There definitely junk in some places but organization is necessary. I see your in Petaluma, I've been there awhile back and most those dairies are small and usually aren't kept up as nice due to less workers. I'm originally from So Cal Chino area and many places there now make you sick how run down they are. Up here in WA dairies are large and kept neat. CA milk price isn't as good as ours but ours isn't that good at the moment either. Hasn't been for 3yrs. Coming up a bit this last year and now are breaking even instead of losing money.

Also we're some of the few and I mean FEW dairyman around here that actually work. We work 6 days sometimes 7 days a week 9-14hr days depending on the seasons and what's going on with maybe 2 weeks off vacation during the year. We're a smaller operation compared to most and couldn't afford to not work and have others work for us.

LOL anyways so far it's a great gun. Came in .30 yesterday and shot it alittle before sun went down and got it changed over to .22 with a few shots this morning to get it tuned. Excellent accuracy on both barrels!

Dairyboy,   Any idea how many cc's the plenum is on the WarP. I'm pretty sure the Flex is 85cc......just curious.

Thanks,
Chris

That's a good question...I'd say it's close to 50-60ccs but I'm not 100% sure.

Nice looking warp!  I have mine in .30 cal as well with the cobra parts. Is that the smaller bottle? I have the 480cc talon tunes bottle on mine. But I like the looks of yours!

Thanks Randy! I really love it I had changed it to .22 right away and shot it for awhile but recently put it back to .30. Really enjoy it in .30 and with the butt pad and cheek riser. I had the smaller bottle but I damaged it so I ended up putting a Talon Tunes bottle on it.

So I had time to take the .30 out yesterday. Took it hunting but no luck as I guess it was too early for most animals to be out and about lol. Anyways while there I decided to set up some targets at 75yds (ended up being 77yds lasered) and 100yds and a can of soda at 125yds. As you can see I didn't really have the best rest or setup lol my feet were on top of the tool box while prone.

Details on the gun are WARP COBRA .30 tuned at 820fps with JSB 44.75gr. Scope is SWFA SS 10x42 Mil-quad with Medium SWFA rings and a SWFA bubble level. Sighted in at 55yds. At 75yds I had a 1.5 Mildot holdover and 100yds was 4 Mildots. UTG 360 Recon bipod and a rubber butt pad and cheek riser on the stock. Gun likes a firm hold. I only have about 60 shots through it (in .30) which included these shots today and I'm shooting it this accurately! 39" long and 9lbs scoped! I'm more than impressed with this gun being a compact hunting rifle and being able to shoot it as accurate as I can. Also keep in mind I'm a hunter not a target shooter so this thrills me!

My setup being the bipod and a towel lol worked pretty good I must say



Close up of gun



The "shooting lane"



77yd target 5 shots just for a group and the 5 targets with one shot each once I got the rough holdover. I let my hold loose for the top right shot making the shot go off target. Learned that at 55yds that opened groups from nice and tight to 1.5"-2".



Group size at 77yds. First group shooting at this distance



100yd target. 2 shots for getting my holdover then 2, 5 shot groups.



My 2nd 5 shot groups at 100yds. 4 are within an inch.



1st 5 shot group at 100yds.



4 of them under .85"



Here's the can at 125yds. Took 2 shots to get the right hold over and GOT IT!

My Cobra is a .25 caliber, otherwise identical to yours.

You mentioned tight hold (perhaps that works), but I've shot my best groups over bean bags, not the tripod. At the 100 yard indoor range, mine shoots better than 3/4 inch groups.

I've also played with the velocity, and set up shooting 25.4 groins AirArms, ≈880 FPS seems to be the sweet spot. I suspect the .30 can shoot even tighter groups with the right velocity.

Keep us informed.

Yeah Alan I won't say that I'm the best shot out there I know with practice and a better setup like an actual bench and rest I could do even better. Also when its 27 degrees and I'm shooting before the sun was up on a 10x scope doesn't help with 100yd groupings either  :D I'm not changing the tune cause it's more accurate than I can shoot where it's set at. I actually can shoot this more accurate than my RAW I had previously which was pretty much built for long range shooting. For hunting I shoot off a bipod in the field or various areas so I practice shooting groups with what I'll be using in the field. I also find a bipod to be alot more steady for me. All just personal opinions though. And for the tight grip for the groups I've had 2 .30 converted Mrods, Hatsan BT65 Carnivore .30 and a HM1000X in .30 and all definitely preferred a tighter grip. They push some pretty good power compared to a .25 and I find I don't need tight grips on my .22s or .25s but .30s in my experience benefit from it greatly.

Looks like some good groups for the way you were shooting and it being so cold.  I really love my warp and I have also experienced it being better shooting for my self then all my previous owned FX guns. FX are nice guns but my boss could not do what my warp or flex can do at 100 yards or further. I see you have the 15" or is it 17" barrel on yours?  I have a 12" on mine and love how compact it is. I'll have a 20" barrel ordered for my flex soon, then my 17" barrel will be available.  Anyways nice shooting and keep rocking that warp.  :o
