Default Not quiet big bore but it will do

I just got some .25 58g BBTs from Tom Buchanan to test out on my Brod. The gun can produce 110fpe but I'm looking to shot them around 840fps for 91.5fpe.

Can't wait to test them out.

I tested today the .251 and .250.

I did not adjust the power on the gun. I shot tethers at 2350 psi. This what giving me 815fps with the 58.4g slugs. That's 86fpe. and I only have 2 turns in with the power adjuster.

No I shot from 40 yards:

8 shots with .250. There are 4 shots in the bottom group




5 shots with .251



One thing to notice. I have to get used to holding the gun. It has a bit of recoil from the hammer. I bet I can do better with both groups. I'm just wondering what size to order from Tom. The .250 shot a little faster but they opened up a bit.
