Finally got to shoot my modded 1322 this weekend.
Image
We were shooting at maybe 50 yards ish. After sighting it in. I was getting 3.5-4 inch groups with the 1x red dot mounted.
I was using some real old wads that came with the gun (20yrs old). Also tried some prometheus pellets. The prometh's has some serious penetration btw.
Anyhow what do you think is an acceptable grouping using the pictured set up? I do plan on getting some JSb's and a mount for a scope is soon to be in the mail.
Just not sure what to expect .
Regards
Walther

Nice build... 8)
You posted in field target so I'm guessing you're looking to shoot Pistol FT?

Currently in Pistol FT, targets are set out at distances between 10-25yards. I have yet to see Kill Zone sizes smaller then 1-1/2" in use during a match, that's not to say that may never change?. Scoring goes like this, 2 points for sending a pellet through the Kill Zone and knocking the field target over, 1 point for a hit anywhere on the target which remains standing and a 0 for a complete miss... If you're shooting 3.5-4" groups at 50yards, after careful pellet selections sounds like you'll be knocking over more then just a few targets...


More details can be found here... http://www.caftahome.com/Pistol%20Field ... elines.pdf

Thanks Parker
As I did my first barrel crowning job on this gun I was worried I messed it up. I had no idea what to expect for accuracy.
Hopefully when I get my scope mounted that should work much better. The red dot was temporary as I "borrowed" it from my cp88 until I get a mount.
Cheers
Walther

If you are planning to shoot pistol FT keep in mind that we have to stay under 500fps.

You don't mention how many shots are in your groups but if you're starting out with 3.5" 10 shot groups at 50 yards with an unmagnified optic that's a great starting point! Careful pellet selection (JSB's?) and a 4X scope will shrink that significantly I'm sure. That will definitely kick some butt!

Thanks
They were approximately 10 shot groups. I am looking at JSB's for sure.
I've already got this scope http://leapers.com/production/prod_detail.php?mitem=Optics&itemno=SCP-432AOMDL2
Just got to get a short 1 piece mount for it.
I am getting excited..

AHhhh, a pumper, so I'm not alone ... It looks great; & at 50 Yds you're getting good results, for PFT sight it in at about mid- range between 10 -25 yards & keep it under 500 fps & you're good to go. How many pumps by the way, or is it modded ?
Do post another pic when you get the scope mounted. 8)

As windbag said, those are very reasonable groups given the sights you were using. Also wad cutters cannot be counted on for accuracy that far out. I would trust the other pellets either. Get some JSBs and the highest magnification scope you can (even if it's temporary) make sure it has adjustable parallax and hen you can really test the accuracy. Without an adjustable parallax scope it'll be tough to always have a consistent sight picture on the pistol.
