pneumatic sniper with muzzleloader bullets

Unread postAuthor: ZachFaught » Sat Nov 26, 2005 8:46 pm

my friend made a pneumatic sniper and took a muzzleloader bullet and shot an apple from about 130 yards away. I was freaking out when he did it. :shock: :P lol

130 <i>yards</i>? Considering an apple is about 3", that's like 2.5 MOA.
I doubt he could even aim that well with a scope, much less the common lack of sights on our launchers (or crude iron sights).
Furthermore; the projectile was probably tumbling, the barrel isn't that stiff, the tollerances are going to be crappy, and a back-of-envelope calculation indicates that he'd have to aim more than 4' high.

130 feet is much more likely - only 5" high, and 7.5 MOA... verging on beliavabel.

I could hit an apple if it was 20 or 30 ft. out but not consistantly .of course that is without sights of any kind. By the way I'm only 51.
