Here is my old girl that I bought in 1984, she's seen a lot over the years, hence the battle scars.

It's a Hull Cartridge Venom HW80, never been re-built...yet... :D

I changed the barrel to an HW80K, but still have the bit shorter original. Nothing wrong with it, was just playing around.

It's got a Nikon Target EFR 3-9, which is holding up great to this magnum springer

Really likes 18.21 g H&N Crow Magnums, @ average of 678 fps

H&N Hunter Extreme 18.52 g @ 715 fps for some reason, I think they don't fit as tight

picture test, well that didn't work so good....

This 10 shot group was with the Crow Magnums, bench rested at 35 yards

These 2 groups were with the Hunter Extreme, bench rested at 35 yards, not as good

Good ballistics, good shooter, too - better velocities than my HW98, that's for sure.

Neat rifle! Did this one come with the venom O-Ringed piston?
