Bought my s400 about two weeks ago and I'm verry chuffed with how it shoots.
However i got a tin of AA Fields with the rifle and thats all i ever shot. Decided to spend the dough and get a couple of different pellets and do a shootout.
Today was my wifes stork tea and i decided that i'd take my 3year old to Safari in Lynwood.
The boy went crazy for all the stuffed animals but screamed in horror when we went too close to the lion....afterwards he was brave and claimed "ek sal daai leeu boks pappa"
Well i went upstairs and got myself a tin each of aa fields 4.52, jsb exact 4.52 and 4.53. I asked for lube but the dude said they do not have....bummer. On my way home i stopped at the hardware looking for silicone spray...they didnt have anything but q20 so I gave that a skip.
I really wanted to wash and lube the pellets...as one does according to youtube....so i went online and was looking for alternatives....pledge furbiture spray came up and i unpacked the kitchen cupboard but only found floor polish. So the search continued. Later I stumbled across a site saying that coconut oil could be used...i knew we had some somewhere and once again i set out on the quest to find some lube. An hour later i found some and started washing and lubing the pellets.
When my wife came home i wanted to shoot but it started raining. I could have done it tomorrow bit i got a gap in the weather with no wind around 8pm. Used a torch to illuminate the target at 45m and we were shooting
I put down 2x5 shot groups of each pellet.
I had to put the scope on max magnification to see the targets and it wasn't easy holding the crosshairs in the middle. Will try again tomorrow.
So wich one would you say looks the best. The last couple of shots there was a slight breeze blowing
From left to right....aa, jsb 4.52, jsb 4,53
Should have left it on my target stand
...looked much more defined there
One thing that youll notice is that the Jsb 4.53 consistanly shot a bit higher than the other two.
Can that be because of a tighter fit in the barrel leading to more pressure build up behind the pellet thus creating more velocity???
