I haven't been having much luck with my hatsan, but after a bunch of work I think I am getting it under control now at 45 yards. Today was really really cold! -21(-29 with windchill), but I wanted to try some long shots.
I set a can up at what I ranged 88 yards with my mildots. 47" drop from my set zero, so I dialed my scope in which was 5 turns and 67 clicks on the elevation turret. Held 1.5 mildots for side wind.

I took three shots and was pleasently surprised to hit the can two times :D

When I walked over to look at the can which didn't fall over, I got bummed out when I only saw one hole... Figured I must have grazed it the second time.

:lol: Never be able to do that again if I tried!

I love my little monster now.

Nice shooting. What a bunch of work to shoot a tin can! Airguns are weird like that (in a good way). 8)

Thanks! I was pretty happy, when I first bought it and tried shooting that far I couldnt hit anything! I thought maybe it was because its .177 and its too easily thrown around because of wind. That was my first reason for wanting to sell it, but it turns out I just needed to do a bunch of little things. I think the biggest help in mods I've done was plugging three lower holes in my valve for consistency, then cleaning up my barrel and securing it better. I had terrible burs and ripped orings around my barrel, plus it would move if I looked at it funny.
Yeah, quite a bit of work for a couple shots lol but I love this stuff, this is why I "need" a scope with a lot of elevation adjustment, so I can play with new shots at different distances.

Its an at44-MW 10177, Yup, im in alberta. Last weekend buddies and I were biking in long sleeve shirts, this weekend I'm trying to shoot wrapped up in a sleeping bag haha. Weird place, next week its supposed to be in the plus's again....

Thanks duke, I'm pumping. From 150 to 190bar its not bad, and especially since I think I am going to stay around 160 now anyways since its the best there. But man, when I do valve mods and have to pump from empty. That sucks! lol my arms burn after that...

OK, lets get this straight, 88 yards, cross wind and close enough to be a one holer to be called a one holer. Then I read 'non PAL'. If you ever do that again and post it I quit. :drinkers:
