i just got a new tech force 89 .22 spring rifle yesterday. i put mabey 100 pellets thru it so far and i doubt you could cover my groups with a dollar bill at 30 yards. i read that these should shoot less than 1/2" at 30 yards. i am holding it very lightly so the recoil can do its thing but its still shooting a shotgun pattern. also i did tighten up the action in the stock, how many shots do you put thru a new spring rifle before you call it "ready" ? i ran 3 pellets over the crony and they were between 725 and 777 fps. thats a big spread. Thanks, Dennis
