Thanks, I range tested it today but it didnt go well because I lost sight of the ball, it was in a very busy area with main roads all around so I had to quickly look away to stash the gun then I lost sight of the ball, but I can safely say it was over 350m but probably a lot more.

I also took It to a school and shot theyre big welcome sign from about 40m, the only problem was that I tried to do it too quick and I bounced it into the ground infront of the sign but it still hit it and left a huge dent in this thick looking sign, tomorrow I'm going back to finish the job and hit it on the full... I think it will either go through the metal or leave a massive indent like 10cm in, I'll take damage pics if I get the ball through :D

Thats the spirit!

The reason I'm shooting at this particular sign is because I went to that school and it was $hit, also the sign is massive and right at the entry to the school so pretty much every person who goes there will see this big hole or dent in they're precious sign and wonder how it got there. Oh and theres 2 car parks next to it and its in a dead end street so not many cars and easy access 8)
