quick chrony tests say that Hobbies 7 grain shoot at 437 fps, and RWS Meister 8.2 grains at 396 fps

So I have some work to do to bring up the speed about 50-65 fps...

Likely fill the piston head cavity with JB Weld - but how is the 953 otherwise detuned?

I ask because I am just now reading the piston-head fill mod but this guy's 953 was already shooting 508 fps with 7.9 grains...

Direct me to links if possible, and I am heading to the Mod area

If anyone finds a target with 40-50 bullseyes with the centre white surrounded by black - please share a link

I have founds various 25 shot bullseyes but prefer a white centre.

Thanks! Happy Shooting. I am heading to the range for the first time today, bringing my CP88 and 953.
Will see how both shoot at 10m and longer with CP HP... :P

Thank-you for this - I printed it and will try it.

I find that I see targets much better, however, when the outer circle is a thick black, the linked for example

http://flintlock.org/pics/var/albums/Ai ... 1358703978

This could be good too:

Wow thanks! I like the top one that is all black with the white centre, best. 1.5" margin on the top and bottom would be ideal for indoor pellet traps like mine.

Then I would go to a copy centre and use their black toner instead of my own printer 8) :lol:

I just figured that maybe the 953 rifle gang might participate in the target game if there were 50 bulls-eyes instead of the current 100.

Perhaps two shots at each one... just thinking out loud...

Thanks for any attempts! PDF would be ideal.

Cheers ~

Just shot 15 five-shot groups for 75 shots using 5 different pellets, to see how they behaved with the 5 shot clips and best groupings @ 7m.

The Contenders:
Cheapo Crosman "Competition" Wads
RWS 7 grain Hobbies
RWS Meister 8.2 grain wads
Stoeger X-Hunt 8.64 grain pointed
Crosman Premier HP 7.9 grain.

(Prelude: Last night I shot 10 or 15 CPHP and found I needed to re-site my scope for them...)

Today's session I began with the Crosman cheapo's and Hobbies - and again re-sited my scope (due to previous CPHP shots) and was hitting centre bulls-eye with them by 3rd group).

I will get the worst pellets out of the way and end with best:

5. The CP HP were a terrible experience - the probe continuously jammed pushing them into the chamber - and for some reason - compared to the wadcutters - the POI was usually right of where the scope-sited Hobbies fell. Will never shoot them in this 953 again. Groups were reasonable at dime and nickel size.

4. The Stoeger Pointed - unlike the CPHPs - these Stoeger pointed wanted to land left of bullseye... little or no jamming in the 5-shot clips and groups were nickel and quarter size. Groups were worse than the Premiere's but at least did not continuously jam! :shock:

3. Crosman Cheapo wadcutters (total 2 groups) were the first and last groups I shot of the 15 . First group I was sighting in the scope and got a dime size. Last group was a quarter and POI was left of centre. Yuck. A little loose in the 5-shot clips, too.

2. My first group of Meisters was poor with a 3 shot ragged-hole and 2 flyers but subsequent groups were dime sized or smaller.

1. Hobbies essentially always played nice and grouped dime sized or smaller.

Tomorrow night I will try the CP HPs in my CP88 and see how they play in my 8-shot rotary clips :lol:
... hate to just give the Premiere HPs away... :roll:

Thanks for the tip :wink:

*Edit: I just looked on the Princess Auto website in airguns and also hunting and did not see any pellets other than Crosman, some gold tipped ones - and a JSB trial pack... where do I find a wider selection for Daisy pellets?

have you found any pellets besides wads that shoot well?
I plink in the woods with a few friends at targets I would like to penetrate, so a rounded or pointed accurate pellet would be nice to find...

I also have slightly better groupings with my 953 using Daisy Precision Max (round tin in my case) than with Crosman 7.4g Competition wadcutters (the ones in the blister card packaging)

I tried some crosman hollow points from Canadian tire and the crosman wadcutters from bass pro (plastic packaged ones)

Not happy with either in my 953

Going back to the hobbies, have 1 500 tin left, but can't find it in stock anywhere.

my 953 shoots the rws line very well. r10's yielding the best results. no surprise there. Hobby's and basic not so well. Shoots the daisy precision line well but not quite as consistent as the rws. JSB's were ok and crosmans not so great. all in 8.2g range. Going to try a lighter weight and see how that goes.

I printed off a couple of these targets. I put my own little twist on it tho and made it a shoot"n" see. just shot it today with my daisy 953 with 4x32 centerpoint scope. I,ve only got about 20 ft. so not too hard to miss . a few were off but most were almost dead center. the first 19 shots were with Crossman premiere hollowpoints and the rest were rws super-h-point fieldline. I think I like these rws pellets a lot better.
