    Very nice. I have been looking into pre-charge air guns. You put together a nice example. Great Job!

    Again thanks everyone.

    I did some testing this morning with AA 8.4 and 10.3 pellets. I shot 20 rounds of each at different velocities and this is the best I have for now.

    AA 8.4
    817
    806
    808
    807
    811
    811
    812
    809
    812
    814
    806
    807
    814
    808
    809
    809
    801
    805
    808
    810
    Highest 817
    Lowest 801
    Average 809
    Extreme spread 16
    SD 3

    The target, 30yards, 2 sight in shots at the bottom, 18 shots at the crow, the gray area is the size of a dime, 16 shot under a dime with 2 flyers.

    I see your regulator is set at 1300 psi . Do you know what your fill and ending psi were ? And what fps the 10.3 pellets were ? Nice tight group . Marvin

    I was testing both pellets at between 14 and 12 FPE. I was only testing 20 shots at a time so did not pay attention to psi. I want to get the extreme spread down to 10 if I can then I'll do a full fill and shoot down to set pressure and see what the final shot count is.
