Conditions: +5°C, 12-15m/s wind, 14-18m/s gusts
Gear: Kalibrgun Cricket .25 + H&N Grizzly 31gr
This is the gun I’ve wanted to own so long – and finally got one!
..and the best part is, that it’s with the older WST stock. What a beauty!
First range day behind (in extreme wind conditions) and nearby weather station recorded insane numbers: wind speed 12-15m/s, gusts 14-18m/s. Not the best day to shoot for sure.
I tried few regular pellets including 34gr JSB King Heavys, but not every shot was even on paper because of the wind, so I shot only 31gr H&N Grizzlys which I run through sizer (.250)”. I read lot of people complaining about accuracy with these bullets and the main reason probably is the fact, that they’re very inconsistent out-of-the-box (.002″ variation in diameter at worst).
After some tuning with HST screw and regulator pressure, 31gr H&N Grizzly bullet leaves the barrel with velocity of 275m/s (902fps) while generating 75 Joules (55ft-lb) of kinetic energy.
H&N Grizzly 31grainers performed noticeably better..
I think this gun is easily 1MOA capable at 100 meters during a calm day. Lot’s of bullet testing ahead!
Did a lot of different kind of a shooting also – namely cinematography.
