FX Dreamline
« on: January 09, 2020, 05:53:16 AM »
last year I purchased a .25 cal.  FX Dreamline Classic with a walnut stock.  I like the walnut stock.
It shoots quite well using JSB 25.39 grain pellets, at an average velocity of 881 fps.  Just purchase
an FX .25 slug liner barrel which I have read shoot the JSB 33.95 pellet as well as slugs.  Information
on pressure setting for the regulator for shooting 33.95 gr. pellets and what slugs also work would be
helpful.

I'm no help! Yet!!

I order a .25 caliber, FX Impact, MkIII from Utah Airguns which will arrive on Tuesday. Supposedly, the barrel liner is a smooth-twist (I haven't a clue what it is), which according to what I've been told, will shoot not only my favorite JBS Exacts (25.39 obviously), and well as the new FX slug which weigh 26 grains. I'll need to sight it in a bit further than Utah's 35 yards, but that isn't a big deal. Until then, I'm in the dark as you are. But... Stay tuned!!

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.

The smooth twist barrels have the rifling impressed into the bore from the outside.  Look at the barrel you can see grooves
which are impressed on the outside to make the rifling inside the bore, quite a different process.  My guess this is done similar
to the hammer forging process often used to make barrels for firearms.  My FX Dreamline shoots quite well.  We, group of
retired guys, shoot airguns at various steel targets at 100 yards.  I made several steel squirrels targets (2.5" x 2.5", 1/2 lb), which are set up on a 2x4 at 100 yards.  My Dreamiline hits them hard and sends the 1/2 LB squirrel flying shooting JSB .25
cal. 25.4 grain pellets.  The 1/8" steel squirrels are not bent up and in need of straightening.

I'm probably not much help either, but one thing I did notice, my .22 FX Crown Continuum shoots the NSA Slugs much better than my .25 Dreamline Classic.  Both have the Smooth Twist X pellet barrels.  I have the new Power Plenum on order, so I'm hoping a little more oomph behind the slugs will help.  The Continuum shoots the NSA slugs equally well with both the 380mm and 700mm barrels.
