A career moves a lot of air

April 19 2006, 11:46 AM 

and the easiest way to make it more powerful is to use a heavier pellet or go to a larger caliber.

Take my advice, I'm not using it anyway.

Get serious about accuracy

April 19 2006, 12:00 PM 

It has all the power you could possibly use.
Why does everyone ask for more. If I gave you 2500 fps you would ask for 2600.
The Career works best with 28,5 grainers at 35-40 fpe.
If you want more power than an Airrifle shooting as hard as a short rimfire get a long rifle rimfire or magnum .22.
I get this all day long.
Get over it!
If all you care about is power the simplest way to make power is to use Helium. 65 fpe becomes 100 fpe.
I live to make airguns accurate and the power game isn't something I'll play because the two are so often mutually exclusive.

Wouldn't "FREE MEN WITHOUT GUNS" be a RIOT?

Tim, are you aware that you still have the 9mm Ultra on your price list? It's a big

just experimenting

April 19 2006, 1:25 PM 

Hi I'not all about power.I just bought a bsa hornet in 12 ft/lbs because i wanted a rifle that gives accuracy, consistency and a lot of shots at the same power.
something u can't say about a standard career for the last 2. Because i thought the career was a lost case anyway i wanted to see if I could push this bad boy even further.
I m not going to play around with helium, just sticking to plain old air thx.

True, but...

April 19 2006, 6:01 PM 

I feel that there is a need for a more powerful and extremely consistent/accurate air rifle for long distance shooting, ie. 100-150yds. I am hoping someone with the ingenuity and expertise can eventually do what the Steyr 2025ZM? did to make their 10m match rifle into a 50m bad ass. I do not know squat about the physics, etc. of advance airgunning, but I do believe that there is a market for a long range accurate air rifle. One day it will happen...I hope.

Fill it with helium for at LEAST 50% power increase. Use Search for details. nt.

I only post when I'm pretty sure of the facts. I've been a heavy user of helium

April 19 2006, 12:13 PM 

for 3-1/2 years now in my:

Sam Yang .45
Career 9mm Ultra
Career .22 Long
Career .22 Carbine
Career .25 Carbine
Career .177 Carbine

I always have a large 6,000psi tank of helium and the same in nitrogen.


This is why I recommended a search of the forum.

Cheers!

Wouldn't that make a gun shooting at over 1000 fps shoot to 1500 fps? Way over super sonic and probably not ideal.Of course you might be able to turn the power down and get an awful lot of shots that way.I have seen 110 fpe with helium from a .25 posted but I'am not sure how accurate that was.I can get 90plus fpe with mine as it is with air.I read in search where the shot count goes down with helium so I guess I don't see where the advantage is. But I'am sure if you like it there must be a reason.

Thanks for reminding me...

April 19 2006, 1:10 PM 

I've been promising for a long time to compare the shot count of helium and nitrogen but at a ME that they are both capable of (I can make this happen with the Career). I have a gut feeling that I'll get a higher shot count with helium which is no guarantee that the consistency will be any good though

Must get this done!

Cheers!

Hey if I had a giant bottle of 6K psi helium laying around I would probably be using it also!

Shoot man I can put the end of my little finger in the transfer port on my Career.It's plenty big and shoots plenty hard the way it is.Mines a .25 caliber and I can get 12 shots over 1000 fps or stretch it out to 21 shots at 850-900 fps.The thing shoots so hard it's downright scarey.

Unless that Gamo shoots 37 grain pellets it don't compare.

I don't think more power Has to be less accuracy.

April 19 2006, 7:36 PM 

I don't know the math on air guns but I do have an 80fpe .22 that is extremely accurate. I have a 60fpe gun that also is very accurate on any power level. The only thing is the number of shots and learning the curve which is not very difficult. On high power with the 80fpe gun I get 9 shots to the same poi then a 1/4 inch drop for the next several shots. However, if hunting I think 9 shots are more than adequate! jmag

I agree and my gun seems to shoot much better in the higher power ranges.Never have had to use many shots hunting either.Career's aren't meant to be babied.You shoot them hard,fast and accurate they way they were meant to be shot.

I can tell you exactly how to make your 707 rifle more powerful...

April 20 2006, 12:07 AM 

turn the powerwheel from left to right.

Personally having shot with 70 fpe and getting about 15 shots...
there is too much muzzle jump @ the bore to shoot accurately...
But there is way more than enough power to shoot thru a 2x4....

Keep your career the way it is or better yet...

send it to me.

HeheheheHehehehHeehehehe

And aaain't it grrreaaat to be livinnn in the USA.

I never whacked a pigeon, starling, or sparrow that didn't deserve it!!!

LOL hey thats the best idea I have heard yet,they already have plenty of power.Funny though mine seems just as accurate at full power.Must be that cheese can at the end of the barrel.
