Long Range Shooting with Airguns / 1000 yd Accuracy-.45 Texan-Video
« on: December 15, 2017, 10:27:08 PM »
Shot this first part of October 2017.  People ask why don't you show firing of gun......I do here 2 shots full screen and then attempt to have Pic in Pic showing firing and camera at impact. IMO small portion is useless as target so far away one sees nothing.......Except staying on scope at least 4 seconds to see dust if hitting dirt??  Also at end give perspective of me standing beside that 24"  wide plate..... Pretty small for target with an airgun at 1000 yards believe me...........

Comments welcomed................Carl

Big Bore Airguns / 329 Yds-Texan-Working Booster-VIDEO
« on: June 21, 2017, 01:58:16 PM »
Set up my Bullet Trap and target in front. Trap is 12X12 inches. Use half inch steel rods driven in ground to keep it in place.Another 2 rods for target with  3" red dot.  Mirage terrible as a hot day and finally could  NOT see where I was hitting so quit. Used booster in field first time and 3rd tank I turned camera on and get good view of it working for 45 seconds bringing an 88 cu ft tank from 3500 psi or less to 4800 psi again....Did this 4 times......

Ask Bob / Air volume increase-enlarging port
« on: February 16, 2017, 11:16:01 PM »
Bob, or anyone capable of the calculation?

You seem to love these calculations BOB? If a valve port diameter is increased from .335" to .404", what is the possible increase of air passing through at PSI 3500-4500 psi? Given in % increase.........Thanks,

Carl

Long Range Shooting with Airguns / Busting 12 oz cans-800 yds-.257
« on: February 10, 2017, 10:41:46 PM »
Just shows that although it took a number of shots on each, visualizes what an Air Rifle can do. Even though lot of misses, there were a bunch of shots, fairly close. That can is only 2 1/4" in diameter. Did this in September just before the 1108 yard hits. Had 2 cans with me and said to self, "SELF" lets go beyond the 700 yds shot last year.

In my 2 LITERS at HALF MILE (880 yds) video, I did set a 12 oz can and ended video with a few shots at it......Had 3 pretty close but let it pass as unsuccessful, no hits.

I found it funny as the wind was up a little at the start and lay down for 2nd can, and it took MORE shots to hit it then?

Hi all,

Distance quest has finished. In my raked area the misses are even  difficult to see unless impact is in FINE DIRT and CAN see dust. If in the pebbles can't see where. Apologies for video first half not sharp focus. I stopped and took a 20 min break and went down and turned camera back on. It focused better that time . Also this was when CALIFORNIA was on fire and smoke filled the valley and can see in  video even. I tried this distance before days earlier and could see impact zone with naked eye, but scope magnified/compressed the air particles and did NOT see IMPACTS. So tried this day.

Bullets compressed almost all the way on impact. 

In STILL PICS below, I tear target off steel plate and see the 12 impacts, left top a WEAK 13th strike but impacted dirt and skipped in.......You can see 12 impacts well with target peeled off.........THE ORANGE PASTER, 6" with impacts in center were from 540 yds another day. I just put pistol target over and they were NOT SHOT AT 1108 yds.

Steel Plate is 39" wide........Image of me with plate and tripod/flag were single FRAME captures out of VIDEO i had. Gives perspective.....

Include pics of gun angle after shooting and the incline of scope rail....298 moa..  Was a fun adventure getting there but am done with the .257 for DISTANCE, It will travel further but not for any practical purpose but to say it was done ???.......Will now in 2017 TRY the same with the .45 TEXAN.  I have it NOW able to go 1000 yds and not finished  with what I have planned. Only have shot it 225 yds testing but all ballistic computer info says it will do the same as the .257 and that surprised me....Not as it came in BOX but WILL NOW 8) All wet and muddy here now and will soon be playing out to 600 yds. Further will have to be dried out to find the dusty impacts for precise elevation.

Constructive/Informative comments WELCOME ;D

Big Bore Airguns / 3rd Barrel Tests
« on: September 28, 2016, 07:36:56 PM »
As many know I have 2 PREMIUM barrels shooting in my Condor .257. 2nd one starting shooting first of August. I had a 3rd barrel a company gave me for testing....There rifling is almost imperceptible it is so fine. Have  a .257 Caliber AR-15 that shoots extremely well with this barrel. Company was willing to have me test it  to possibly get into airgun market.....

Bottom line FOR ME, I could NOT make it shoot to my expectations. BBL was 26" long and I shot 5 different slugs, from 63 gr Noe to 92 gr Noble from Arsenal Molds. I did get three 5 shot groups that were little over 1".....And good if it wasn't the exception......Groups averaged 2 moa and only shot it at 100 yds. Worst group was with the 63 gr and was 4 1/4"......It was a Polygonal Rifled barrel.........Have a friend that said he had a Marlin with their Micro Groove Rifling and it was very fussy with lead and had to use HARD CAST......That would defeat purpose with AIR.  I shot speeds from mid 800 fps to high 900 fps and it just wasn't consistent for me...

Gave my report back to company, with group pictures and they thought hard cast would help as they have success in the 300 BO shooting lead. They said thanks for the opportunity to see what their rifling could do in air and keep the barrel they didn't need it back.....

I said I would run some jacketed Sierra 70 gr Blitz Kings through my sizing die and TRY THEM as they shoot very accurately in POWDER AR. But that is winter project....

First barrel i failed to get to shoot well.....It is a done deal as I have 2 barrels that are PRIMO already.  Posted to let others who asked what happened.

Long Range Shooting with Airguns / Hammering the 200 yd EBR Targets-Video
« on: September 10, 2016, 03:47:41 PM »
Just seeing what my gun with latest barrel can do, at 200 yds on Airguns of Arizona Extreme Benchrest Target........I have done it with 3 different bullets and 90 shots over several times I put one up. I shot average 15 shots on a single target, so have 6 good targets over those 90 shots. I think 8 nines all rest 10's and X count........Gun works.........

Big Bore Airguns / .257@Extreme Distances
« on: September 02, 2016, 07:46:23 PM »
Hi All,

In my introduction a member asked to see some of my shooting vids.....I posted this link to 15 video's on my YouTube Channel over the past 15 months shooting Long Range. I will post here and in the Long Distance Thread.

 I shoot a highly customized AirForce Condor, in .257 .....I have shot several times to over 1000 yds.

I am NOT A VIDEOGRAPHER with PRO LOOKING VIDEOS. I am a shooter with pocket camera I put at the target and afterwards give a LONG VIEW of the distance shot. Been on the WORLD WIDE GTA forums and as far as I know, there is no one that shoots an airgun further to hit what they are aiming at.....Comments Welcome....

Link to VIDEOS.....click on 15 of them to watch https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLiuDTa_dWi_G0gAnRAlByuEBFfQ-B44CY

Pic of gun... I shoot from Portable table at times depending on distance since I have a raked target area. Pic is gun having just shot at 1000 yds. Focus at infinity, no do not see end of barrel ;).....Carl
