Airgun Ammo / Re:'s buckshot
« Last post by Bullfrog on June 24, 2018, 07:14:06 PM »
I shot with them this weekend and I'm still getting good results. I did put some in the calipers and all the ones I tried (about 10) were reading .29x with a lot of variance in the thousandth slot.

I haven't tried mixing up shot from different parts of the bottle. I'm just grabbing them off the top. Out of a bottle of 1300, I've only scratched surface quite literally. I hope major variance doesn't appear deeper in the bottle.
Airgun Ammo / Re:'s buckshot

I picked up an 8 ib container their #3 buck once, and it shot surprizingly well from a .25 walther talon mag.  Ive since sold the rifle and sent the buckshot with it, but i had a few laying around when i got my .25 xs28m and it shot them pretty good too but it it had a much tighter bore   Just didnt have enough to give a good honest test, snd not interested in getting more.  I stick to diabolo pellets be ause they are much easier to load.  The buckshot loaded in the wtm with ease, but in this xs28m, i had to force them into the breech very hard, usually with a small piece of wood instead of my thumb because it hurt.

I've used other buckshot, too.  I get them from shotgun shells usually.  The BPI buckshot is far higher quality than most buckshot used in factory shotshells.  I do wosh I could find the copper plated Hornady #3 buckshot, I would buy it in a heartbeat.  Only place I have found it is in a shotshell.

I would place the BPI buckshot squarely on the same level as the Hornady copper plated buck.  It is high quality stuff, in my limited experience.  Other than these two specific brands, I've had bad luck using buckshot.  I would honestly say, typical clamp on splitshot sinkers are more consistently produced than the typical buckshot. 

I might have to pick uo another 8 lb jar of BPI #3 to verify my experience, and have some cheap ammo that shoots decent when i run out of JSB Kings.

Meanwhile, lemme know if you find some hornady copper plated #3...

Allow me to give you a suggestion.

It appears you've already discovered kitchen flour to make a large hit detection area as it shows up much better than plain old dirt. This said, if you want to be able to tell when you really hit the bucket(s), make a trip to Hobby Lobby (or on line). Buy some fluorescent tempera paint like that used for finger painting. Fluorescent green works well when used with the flour. A pint bottle is about $3, and will effectively color about 20 gallons of water.

My favorite airgun is a WAR Cobra in .25 caliber. It isn't what one would call a long range airgun. But shooting out to the lake has given me an appreciation of just how far an airgun can shoot. Sort of a safety warning issue if nothing else.

By the way, good shooting.

Thanks........With my 257 and the Texan, I have shot 1000 yds or more many times and have vids of having done it............I plan no more at Real Long Distance.........That Range I go to has Steel to 554 yds and I concentrate from there inward as it is way more useful as These LONG range was to prove what can be done but isn't realistic  to keep doing it but to just say you did it. 3 years a friend and I raked and weed eater cleaned a 50'x50' area to see impacts and last year said I would NOT DO THAT AGAIN. To old, crippled up and need grass  down to see air impacts.

Thanks again.............Carl
