told you before about running it at 18 ft lbs. One day they will catch you squeezing those pellets lol

As it happens loads seemed high on todays chrono readings. I started the day at 793 so turned it down again before the am session, having turned it down after gp 2![/QUOTE]

I was using a spring gun running at 770 fps when i had the pellet fly back off a close target, as for today i went through chrono at 788fps and no sqeeze, i let the marshall check my pellet, did u mr sqeeze
