.. Jonathan was the only person that bested my score in the WFTF Piston division at this year's US Nats. Even if I didn't have a scope knob malfunction that resulted in 0 for the first 3 lanes, I wouldn't have beat him - he is the King of the Wind, and one damn fine shot.
My personal best grouping in recent memory is 0.41" with a 10 shot group from my sitting FT position (shooting jacket, but no straps) at 51 yards indoors. This is with my sub 12fpe TX200SR using unwashed, unsorted, but lubed JSB 8.4s
Can it do this consistently? Right now, no. I need to tinker with it a bit further, as these things are notorious for being finicky. On the second day of the Nats, I put 12 clicks elevation on it during the warm up. It was consistent with this for the rest of the day, but I don't know why it needed it. This isn't the first time I've had to adjust the elevation. I've found that it shifts POI vertically on occasion, but not usually within a shooting session. So once I rezero, it's pretty good.
But I can't honestly say that 75% of my 5 shot groups are within 1/2". They are within 3/4" yes. I'm not sure I'll get it to 1/2", I still need to do some pellet testing on it, and also put a lot more lead down the barrel once I have the powerplant how I want it.
I have a HW97k that has Steve Pope's V-Glide kit in it, and I have hopes that this can be a consistent 3/4" rig, maybe better. I had a lot of issues with the CS1000 stock, but I think they've been solved. I'm also itching to test out a PW tuned TX200 Mk3 that has had a barrel job by Paul. I haven't shot a springer from Paul that wasn't very accurate and easy to shoot.
I love springers because they are so dynamic, I love PCPs too, but actually have a lot more fun shooting springers.
