Josh,

If you could shoot another "Quick .25 accuracy test" and this time record it on video and reply here, that would be great.

If anyone else wants to test and reply that would be great also.

Guide lines:

Six shots in 90 seconds or less, 1 take, starting the clock with the first shot, (mention the brand and weight of your pellet).
Distance of 300', (or as close to as possible, some may not have 300').
Scope set no higher than 9 x (or as close to as possible, also mention the brand of your scope).
At least a slightly elevated heart rate.
No bench rest, or tethered to a tank (other supports, tree, post, shooting sticks, etc., are acceptable).

Benchrest has it's place and is great, (pellet selection, competitive meets, etc.), and has been represented often.

This test is to try and understand what to expect for the others who like to hunt, walk around and shoot, or maybe just step outside onto the porch or in the yard and shoot. :)

If anyone shows interest, we could decide testing guidelines for those who have shorter distances to work with.

Tim

I get similar results shooting from a bench with kodiak or barracuda 31.02. When hunting its always from bipod or 4' shooting sticks which opens the group up another 1" or more depending on the conditions on a given day. Also, I never change my scope off of 10x mag because thats where I learned my holdovers and it changes with scope mag changes. I dont have any issues shooting at that magnification so why change now?

I absolutely love the .25 marauder.

If your pictured 50 and 100 yard tests were shot off-hand, you are really good!

But I would not say this is even close to off-hand "Seated position using 4 x 4 porch post to steady."

When I'm shooting squirrels, I always find something to steady my shot - at least shooting sticks or monopod.

Maybe BarnyDaddy's posted groups were shot off-hand. If so, his Marauder may be more accurate than I it seemed.

Thanks for clearing that up :D

This forum makes it easier to enjoy this great pastime that we all share.
There are so many variables to this sport, that is why it is important to be as accurate as possible. ;)

By the way, I have noticed that when shooting JSB 25.39 pellets through my rifle, they have a tendency to wobble. Note the target on the right (JSB), it looks like the top pellet keyholed.
Have 4800 H&N Baracuda's on order with PA
