  1. Thanks for all the tips, my bobcat is a MK1. I bought it brand new about 5 years ago and it does not have a separate regulator gauge or adjustment so in the past I have done the old fashioned method of trying every pellet I could and found the JSB king MK2 33.95gn to be very accurate but as I say now with the slight drop in power these pellets are not so accurate. I think I better call the SGC as they have been doing the repairs
  2. Just doing some calculations and to get the gun to the power level it was I need another 30+ FPS when you look at it that way the 4 ft/lb sounds quite a lot using jsb exact king heavy MK2 33.95gr .25. My main concern is that the accuracy is not as good as it was before the new Reg
  3. I’ve just had a new regulator fitted to my FX Bobcat. The gun has always run at 49 ft/lbs+ but the new Reg is running the gun at about 45 ft/lbs. Will a new Reg take time to settle in?
  4. I have an fx bobcat mk1 fac which is regulated and it is leaking air through the air bleed hole at the bottom so I replaced the 2 o rings that wrap around the regulator but still the air continues to leak, the more pressure I put in the faster the leak. Thinking of stripping the regulator down and replacing the internal o rings, but before I do, if the internal o rings were faulty would air still be coming through the air hole at the bottom of the block ?
  5. Hi all, just reloaded some 243 rounds and noticed that the heads slid into the cases very easy. ( i only neck sized the cases so i assume i need to adjust it a bit ) after i crimped the bullets i notice the heads still twist round in the case but will not slide in or out, i have not noticed this before so my question is, are these rounds safe to use ?

  8. i have a browning 20 gauge with invector chokes, now in the instruction manual it would appear that i can use the 3/4 choke for steel but looking at the chokes they are all engraved with steel and lead shot info, all that is except for the 3/4 {2 notches} which is only engraved with lead info. in the past i have been told no more than 1/2 choke can be used with steel. so can i use 3/4 or not for steel?. by the way the cartridges are Kent Gamebore 24g 5 shot

  10. Don't know if this is in the right section but here goes, i have a casio ex zr 100 camera and i have mounted it to my mtc viper to get some slo mo video and it works well but i cannot get the reticle in sharp focus, zoom in to far and i loose it all together and the other way the reticle is too small, so the question is how do i focus in on the reticle?
  11. Thats a thought, I used to use accupells in an fac .22 rapid 7 years ago when they were crosman and though theoben didn't recommend them they were the most accurate in my gun. i have had a look on the net and it seems that Webley accupells are made in .25cal and at about 27.5 grains would be nice to try. But here comes the question, Where the hell do i buy .25 accupells from? ...
  12. Just bought the bobcat and been testing some pellets and so far the most accurate one is the jsb exact, i would be interested to know what others are using in this rifle, also would like to know if the fx smooth twist pellets are actually good in the smooth twist barrel?

  14. Hi Duffryn, My camera is a hero1 and i have settings 1 to 5 in the fov settings so which one is N ? ... thanks
  15. Hi all, just got a go pro hero and used it on the shoot yesterday and the footage is very good, but using the camera inside the waterproof housing my picture is as if i am looking through a goldfish bowl and indeed the barrels of my gun [if on the edge of the picture] have a curved shape, i think it comes from viewing through the plastic lens on the waterproof housing. So i ask, would it be better to take the plastic lens off when filming? having watched lots of go pro footage on youtube i don't see this gold fish bowl effect
  16. Thanks for the replies but not what i mean, the type i am looking for carry the rifle in a position horizontally across the front of your body and the strap goes over the stock and barrel from the top carrying the rifle as if you were about to shoot from the hip, a bit like when you play a guitar. I hope i have explained better this time
  17. Hi, can somebody tell me the name of a type of sling that carries the rifle across the front of your body in the upright position [that is with the scope to the top]. thanks for any help
  18. My local shop has run out of my usual hodgdon 4895 but suggested i try ramshot, be nice to hear some opinions before i buy. i load 243
  19. I would like to use a camcorder with my air rifle, the scope is a mamba. I don't need to use it at night but i would like to have a camcorder with slow motion playback as i find it interesting to watch the flight of the pellet. Could anybody recommend one? there are loads of s/h ones on ebay but don't know which models to choose. { i will be mounting it on the scope eyepiece }
  20. Good point Harnser, as i use my rifle mostly for foxing from a vehicle i chamber the bullet several times, as i don't like the rifle loaded in the vehicle with the safety catch on, as i said i used to crimp everything but was put off and i remember some people warning me that i could get high pressures by crimping … Any thoughts on that?
  21. Thanks all very interesting, what i have noticed when seating the bullet in the case is that the pressure needed to push the bullet in does vary a bit so i thought if i crimp then this would even things up and with the lee crimp die i can adjust it to do a light crimp
  22. Just been reloading some 243 bullets and noticed my lee factory crimp die in the box. I used to use it all the time but was put off using it by people telling me it was not needed but reading the lee info sheet they claim more constant velocity and greater accuracy, so i thought do i crimp or do i not …. What do you all think?
  23. Hi evo, are we still talking fac air wolf
