Daystate Airwolf pellet testing
« on: June 06, 2017, 09:48:58 PM »
A few weeks ago I managed to sneak away for a few hours for some "group therapy" so I decided to take the Wolf and a bunch of pellets out for a testing session.

I tried a good range of pellets and quickly found that the wolf really isn't too fussy on its diet, maybe that's in part due to the lower power but I'm happy with it the way it is :)

All these 5 shot groups were taken on a "hoodie bag" rest at 25m outside on a calm but not still day, the rifle is electronically regulated and runs at 12fpe in .22. The pellets were just plucked from the tin with no sorting or lubing etc. The scope is a BSA Sweet which I am struggling to agree with the eye relief on but is well featured. After finding the Edgun 18gr to be the tightest group (the flyer in the pic was me) I decided to put another 15 into the same spot to make myself a nice little pellet mushroom :)

The light weight Hobbies really whistle and go noticeably faster so would be a good choice for hunting but I haven't hunted with a wad cutter before... bad idea?







Lots of airguns

Mintie. I am interested but somehow I missed this post. Nice shooting. Nice rifle. Too expensive for me.
Sako shot 96 on the small bore range with a TX200. Maybe it was 98. There is mention of it in the forum somewhere. I will see if I can find the score.

If my score on the range tomorrow is respectable I will post the result. Shoot out for springers and one for PCPs.
Do we disqualify Wingman from starting or just accept a drubbing?

Pauly5 has a 98.4. That must have been an HW97 unless he used his PCP but I think not. That is some score. Even the 22 target rifles have to work to get that.

Not the best springer score at NRC. Pretty sure Richard got better, and can't remember his name, but he beat it with his TX getting a 99.3 I think.
