Default Tightest groups

Of all the rifles you've owned, which produced the tightest groups?

None, tight groups have always been down to the right pelletrs.

Both my Njr and my Ev2 will do groups the size of a 5p at 55 yards, with the right pellets. No wind, as yesterday as it happens at tondu.
Both will do shotgun groups with the wrong pellets.

That's interesting.

So would you say that there really isn't much difference between barrels nowadays?

No, there can be a great difference.

I would say my Barrel on the PRIEST is far better than the Barrel on REV, I am liley to swap them in the winter?

However, a great barrel is not one if the wrong pellets are travelling along it.

Funnily enough my Daystate Mk3 was the best indoor gun I have ever had, off a rest and with weighed pellets that thing would make a tiny ragged hole all day long.

Much better than my steyr or Walther, but I sold the Mk3 and the Steyr. It makes no sense whatsoever but my Walther gets better results outdoors.

Default Best groups

The best rifle I ever had for consistant gropus was an all steel Ripley AR5 that I had.

It would shoot anything great.

I would say it is down to pellets but alot of it is down to the barrels as well.

Im not a great person to talk to though about group shooting as I get bored very quickly and prefer to shoot proper targets. Im sure club mates of mine would agree with that haahaa.......
