    Default BAM B51 Accuracy

    I cleaned out the barrel of my B51 last night and had a few shots at 10m in my garage at home, here are the results. The tightest groups were shot with me braced across a doorway, my shoulder of my trigger arm on one doorpost, and the fingers of my other hand braced against the other doorpost holding the front of the stock. I don't have a proper shooting rest like the larnies (I'm a larnie wannabe!).

    A sock filled with rice or sand makes an OK rest.

    What velocity is your rifle running at?

    I don't know the velocity, I don't have a chrony.

    I shot down to about 5MPa, I heard the fill valve click when my hand pump gauge reached 5 MPa when I refilled this morning. The last shots I took were aimed at the number "1" on the horizontal number line to the left of the target, the pellets starting to hit low.

    I replaced the original transfer port with a smaller one courtesy of Wyan (thanks again), I seem to be getting a lot more shots now than I did with the standard port.

    I cleaned the barrel out by pulling a thick shoelace through it from a pair of "DC" takkies. Everything on a shoestring budget, hehehe.

    I'm sure it would too if I had a proper rest...maybe I should try the old rice or sand sock thing...but wouldn't the sock just flatten when I stand on it...?











    Just kidding, hehehe

    If someone could tell this Dumb blond again how to post pics onto the chat page I will post some BAM groups from diff rifles at diff tunes and velocities.
    HuffnPuff if you are shooting with a reduced port and at 160bar your velocity will be about 790/780 with 8.4gn (port +- 1.8mm)
