Long range.

    Recommended Posts

    Had a great day today. 

    Blew off work to go shoot all day with my mate. 

    First up the woods with the airguns after squirrels and jds. Had a few .

    Then down onto the open farm land this afternoon with my mates new hmr and me with my. 25 cal fx .

    First a zero check for the hmr at 100 yds and me at 50 for the airgun .spot on .

    Then we placed targets from 75 out to 200 to see how the hmr performed for accuracy and impact. .

    Steel plates. Melons .peppers .and the fave -Coke cans .

    Mate connected nicely with most targets even out to 200 exploding a can of coke lovely .

    I hit a couple of cans at 100 yds. 

    Which as the wind dropped was pretty easy .i then tried for a can at 150 yds 

    Found the aim point in chairgun for 150 yds and smashed the can second try. .

    I then went on to repeat it a couple of times .i then tried a 175 yd can but i had to wind my mag down to 7 x to get a 175 aim point at the bottom of the ret. Which was just too hard to see the can properly .so i gave up on that .

    But im well chuffed with the fx at 150 yds a can is only about  3 x 4 inches .

    15 fpe of energy at 150 is still a lot .

    Cheers stu.

    Can't believe you would rather go shooting than work 🤣😂 🤣

    I was watching some videos of a Polish guy on YouTube shooting about 130yards i think.

    150 yard tins is a proper plinking session

    Cheers guys .

    Ive been working hard a lot recently. And to have a whole day just to play with my buddy was sooooo needed . We find the "therapy " of gun time is so good for the soul  and effective it should be prescribed on the nhs for depression . .

    I feel refreshed and much happier having been out in the sun all day enjoying and concentrating on a single objective. 

    I cant over play how effective its been. 

    Also my fx is awesome which is nice .😎

    Yeah they are  and i had to have the mag on 9x to connect. Which makes em pretty small .

    Sweet when they explode tho .

    £4 on a 10 pack well spent .

    Good fun.  Did you log your squirrel kills?

    Not yet .i slammed him in the boiler room at 30 yds with a 23 fpe .22 .

    Which did the trick .

    But its a bullpup .not a rifle .

    It doesnt even have a rifled barrel .

    is it a smooth bore then?

    Yes 

    Smooth twist. 

    It has1.5 inches of spin induced at the end .it makes a big .25 cal pellet very stable for long range shooting .

    My pellet dropped more than 4 ft from zero at 150 yds .

    Thats one stable pellet .

    How strange? I know the guys on the rapid forum talk about polishing their barrels to take out tight spots and this improves the accuracy, but i wouldn't have expected a smooth bore.

    An air gun pellet is inherently stable with the weight at the front and stabilizing skirt at the rear .they dont need a lot of spin .infact too much spin works against accuracy at long range .(75 yds plus ) 

    This is why fx guns win all the long range comps .
