Anyone fancy joining me fly fishing tomorrow after golf?Latest update on the old BSA
Shooting this morning to try it out, cant see much without a scope but still managed to pepper a 2" round target at 30yds with someone spotting for me
After about 50 pellets it started to settle down, I realized that as i had hot blued the barrel i had lost all the lead deposits, another 20 or so pellets and the difference was appreciable (another 150 or so and it should be settled and nicely leaded up)
So with 70 or so pellets through it and the action becoming smoother after every shot i decided it was chrono time but wasnt expecting great things .................... 11.1 to 11.2 ft/lb consistent pellet after pellet which is exactly where you want an old springer to be (legal limit is 12 ft/lb for those that dont know)
More luck than judgement and I expect it to rise very slightly with use, I am well chuffed with that and have been walking around with a big silly grin all day just got to find a scope now !
SMK mentioned elsewhere is next up, the thing puts out a noisy rattly 6 ft/lb at the moment and I am hoping for a smooth quiet 9, wish me luck
Can I bring my air rifle..?
I wish you had turned up…it started peeing down on the third and you woukd have got soaked. Your pointy things would have gone rusty As well.
