testing indoors...

Unread postAuthor: jackssmirkingrevenge » Sat Mar 01, 2008 8:20 am

I was doing some tests with the Monsoon inside today, using a large granite slab as a backstop shooting at a cardboard target. The lead simply disintegrated on impact, splashing out in all directions. Illustrated below is the rear side of the cardboard, the galling thing is that I now have shards of lead embedded in a nearby door *oops*

Thats pretty cool perhaps you've invented a new form of art work...

Whats do think the velocity was?

I'm guessing they were lead pellets...

can't wait to test out the accuracy potential once I get bored of dumping mags in a couple of seconds


So does this mean you got bored? :D

Thats pretty cool its a few fps under my break barrel pellet rifle.

Nope, I still dump mags like crazy :D but it's such a consistent rifle that it's a shame not to take it out to longer ranges for accurate single shots.

Ah, but this fires a pellet twice as heavy ;)
