    30-06, It's nothing really fancy just based on Talon SS with following power mod done:

    ----------------------------
    26" .20cal Weihrauch barrel
    Custom brass heavy hammer
    Custom 1 piece hi-flow valve
    ----------------------------

    between 140-180bar it spits 20 of EJ 24.1gr around 1050fps.

    It shows you that hunting at 100m is mostly luck if you hit One out of 15 shots. LOL

    with 15 shots EJ in 1050fps at 100m distance over the bonnet under wind... nm... that's pretty much the best i could do... though they are not sub-inch accuracy... but who able to shoot sub inch grouping with 15 shots at 100m with airgun in any random day in SA? hehe... I doubt the rabbit dare to try the luck for 1 of those 15 shots.

    The EJ tin is 65mm OD (true size), so thats about 4 MOA. I think that you could get 3 MOA best case over 10 shots. I tried it myself sometime back off a dead rest and 2.5 to 3 MOA was the best I could get at 100m range with EJ's over 10 shots. 10 shots at 80m you should manage 2 MOA and at 50m, 1 MOA. This is perfectly acceptable when considering that you're probably not gonna attempt anything further then 60m most of the time. 100m is a long long way. Nice boondock...

    Boondock, I'm sure you've seen this but just wanted to point out that 1st place at 100m was 3-4 MOA with an AA S410 Xtra FAC. And this was only 5 shots in an indoor range... So once again, nothing wrong with your 15 shots at 100m.

    Out of curiosity, Id like to try my S410 .20 at 100m. Especially with the new 25" barrel.

    (Its not as powerfull as your canon, Boondock.)
