Noooooooo... Ummmmm.... I had a witness there beside me and HE is from the US visiting.... Yes that's it!

Now my understanding is he moved somewhere in Nigeria and he'll answer all your concerns on the authenticity of these super amazing shots I made during that summer winter blizzard but it will cost you and excepts money via Western Union.

i took these 5 shot groups at 100 yards last summer using my sub pal winchester 500x with open sights standing, wind 50 km/h gusting to 80, pellets used were 177 Grizzly's, but since i had maxed out on plinkercases money i didn't enter it in the CAF challenge....i mean there was no point right :shock: true story :D

Yeah. Looking again I have to wonder about that left to right breeze. Why are the groups all on the left then, eh smart guy? Tried a bit too hard. Got busted. There's a good reason orofessional liars try to keep their stories simple.

How about this one....

Watched Star Wars last night and listened to Master Yoda. Just came back from the range and used a sub 500 fps break barrel, no sights, unsorted CP 7.9gr pellets and blind folded shooting at 100 yards.... 10 shot group! Scouts Honour... :butthead:

No way those were unsorted pellets.

Didn't have too... a very merry special Christmas order from Crosman and the pellets where already hand picked, sorted and individually packaged in a foam tray. :D

I bet you could see through that blind fold. Next time try it backwards. Thats how I shoot golf balls at 100 yds. Of course I cheat a little and ricochet of the bar bq.

Hi guys,
Introduce my name is Ruddy, I'm from the other side of the planet, jakarta-INDONESIA.

The reason I post this questions are:
1. Nobody post this .177 with serious airgun and mod built for this long range.
2. There should be somebody taking this seriously with benchrest, long barrel, right pellet speed, selective pellet, etc. and I want to see it, don't you?
3. I use HW100 with Walther barrel 70 cm long without choke, JSB heavy pellet, 1000fps and never get the grouping I want, so far it's about 5 inch grouping at 100 yards.
I believe there will be alot to discuss how to modify the airgun to reach the smallest grouping.
Have not try to reduce to 850fps. Not yet.
4. .177 require no permit, higher than .177 does, I have no choice but us .177.
5. Getting the permit here is complicated, time, birocracy and money.
6. I believe Somebody should do better grouping than Ted holdover on youtube
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QFou_4VqLBY

If you can get grouping with in a dime, you should make a nice documentation like airgun you use, pellet brand, pellet speed, any modyfication you 've made, etc.
And please don't tell me you can shot that range without scope? At a dime grouping ???

In my country the law is odd.
Higher than .177 required permit, so .177 require no permit!
And I can use .177 2000fps or higher without breaking the law.
I hope there is somebody would like to share and discuss.

Btw, i can not believe a dime grouping ???
Proof it it's real by making a new documentation like video .
Are you saying better than ted holdover on youtube?
It's what I want to proof that somebody can do this actually.

Some of that's a bit hard to follow, but most of your meaning is clear enough. Good, fine, you want to see serious discussion regarding longer range airgun accuracy and what might be required to obtain dime-sized groups at 100 metres specifically. That's a solid topic.

I am not familiar with your rifle so can not comment on that directly. One thing I would offer is that it is very unlikely you will find any airgun offering dime-sized or even dollar-sized groups at 100 metres when shooting pellets at 1,000fps. It is an inherently unstable velocity from what I understand in reading many forum discussions regarding accuracy. If you want ultimate airgun pellet accuracy (waisted pellets at least - not getting into 'bullets' with no waist, boattails, etc.) then one of your best bets is a JSB round nosed pellet, heavy as you can get in your calibre, and travelling somewhere between 820fps and 900fps, maybe slightly faster. So to get started I'd suggest the cheapest next step would be to order some heavy round-nosed pellets and test their velocity. If you can get the velocity within that 'sweet spot' of stable velocities without modifications to your rifle, my guess is that you will see the groups tighten up.

And thank you for not being a spammer. I am happy to see a genuine airgun enthusiast behind your one initial post. An introduction post would still be nice of course:
