To all you S400 classic owners . What do you find to be the sweet spot on your gun? How many sweet shots do you get ?
lewis , that is not the sort of answer i was looking for .Now you have forced me to buy a chrono .As soon as the chrono's are in stock I plan on getting one .For now I was hoping to get a bit of feedback from the guys while I am in limbo waiting for it .
Moose , how many shots do you get between those 2 ranges .
shop around.........and also decide which chrograph to get ie. accurate (pricy) or not so accurate (not as pricy). i found with my chrony (green one/base model), it's light sensitive, i now try do the chrony tests under the same conditions.......ie in doors with controlled light source.
got my from dnr sports over the net, i think it was USD 50 for the chrony, shipping was 40 or so......but i got it within the week. no duties/vat was payable (lucky i guess).
My S410 Carbine (300mm cylinder) gives me 50 good shots (ES about 20fps) from a fill pressure of 200Bar down to around 130Bar.
My NJ-S400FT (520mm cylinder and modified valve) gives 119 good shots (ES<20fps) from a 180 bar fill, normally I fill to 170 and take 80-90 shots. With the modified valve it will give around 150 shots if filled to 200 Bar with good ES (<25fps).
A recently acquired S400 Classic is giving 65 good shots from 170Bar and an early S300 fitted with a shorter (carbine length) Anschutz barrel is giving 55 shots from 170Bar.
All the above for average velocities set around 780fps.
Hope that helps.
