    Default FAC Rated. The new air rifle test.

    I just read an article in the May addition of Airgunner Mag and thought Id share it with you guys as it is a simple test to see how your new rifle performs. I find this interresting because I just bought a Falcon FN19 FAC .20 at 28fpe. I havent taken it out yet, but this is what Ill do before we go hunting. This is probably boring stuff for all the gurus out there but here it s anyway. Mat Manning did this test with his new BSA Super Ten FAC .22 at around 30 Fpe. He made a target with 7 x 25mm circles on it. Each representing 10 yards difference. 7 targets between 10 and 70 yards. He then shot 5 shot groupings using 16.25 grain round headed pallets from a dead rest, with his scope was zeroed at 35 yards. All the shot were aimed at the centre of each target. The result is like a graph that shows you what happens to your pallet in the air. I cant scan the photo, but I made a simple drawing that illustate the same. He goes on about chrono stats and all sorts of stuff that I dont have the patience to type out. Go do the test. I sure will.

    Looks very interesting. Will try this when i've got som loose time on hand. Gives you a good indication of "pelletdrop" at the different distances. Good to know, especialy for us
    Hunters.

    Keep us updated on the FN19.

    That is how you are supposed to see how many mill dots you need at what distance and at what mag. You fire at the same point at different distances that you would like to know the drop for and make a note of how many mills it dropped. You can then synchronize the mills with the magnification that makes them fit in nicely. You can do that if you want to, for the wind also, if you are that way inclined.
