Great video Bullfrog!

Valve lock. My Texan 257 has done that. AirForce told me to turn the power up, to which I replied, but I get great groups at that power setting. Hrrrumph.

Enjoyed the video!

Thank you for posting. But the video raises a question or two.

Considering all of that black and gray facial and body hair, you'd almost not need any camo clothing. Am I correct?

The second question is, have you tried the Hades version of the hollow point? I can't get them to group past about 50 yards in any of my .25 caliber guns, so I don't shoot very many of them. But when they do connect, the whack and damage done by them is sort of unbelievable.

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

I have not try the Hades. I am thinking a Polymag might be the ticket next time I use the .25.

H&N/Beeman used to have a fantastic hollowpoint pellet in .25 that I think they discontinued some time ago.

Regarding the valve lock, I had that gun tuned ideally for regular 31 grain Barracudas and JSB Heavies. I would like to try them on a turkey. I regret that Florida has a seasonal limit of 2. I’m very likely to tag out this coming weekend.

I‘m probably going to use my short Flex and a .30 Polymag tuned for 74fpe for bird 2.
