PCP power levels

Recommended Posts

An epilogue of sorts.

Having been put off buying a daystate, I ended up buying a huntsman simply because it seemed well priced and I liked the look. Every make I looked at had reviews slagging them off. From this I assume the majority are ok so I’ve taken a gamble. Seems to have paid off. So far.

Now the actual subject - power. It had a test sheet stating it gave between 11.3 and 11.7 on 8.44gr sovereigns which I was dubious of. So on my chronograph it gave between 11.5 and 11.9 on the same pellets which seems a bit high if anything.

On 10.65gr baracuda match it gave between 11.2 and 11.7 which may or may not be interesting. I wanted to try bisley magnums in case they were higher but haven’t got any. So the upshot is I don’t need to concerned about power, just finding the most accurate.

Very good .now go out and try aome pellets .

The ones with high bcs will be great for hunting and long range wind bucking 

So jsb exact around 0.025 

Bis mags /barra match 0.023 

Jsb heavies 0.035  (thats very high)

H+n snipers 0.029

Flippin’ heck, more numbers! Are those ballistic coefficients  correct at sub 12ftib levels? And should I look for the highest bc combined with accuracy? (Financial issues are of no importance - I’m a wealthy man and whether I pay 3p or 4p per pellet is of little consequence)

Yeah they do alter from gun to gun ofcourse. But are pretty ballpark for most pcps .

And yes accuracy with a high bc will be best .

Go with the exact first .

Looking at the adverts and pictures, it appears the range master sovereign is the same weight and appearance as the jsb exact and they are made by jsb. Are they the same pellets (virtually)?
