I did some testing today after finally receiving the JSB predators from PA. The shots were taken from 55 yards away and the wind was blowing from left to right, which is the main reason this group is not tighter. Had the weather conditions been better, these groups probably would have been closer to nickel sized at this distance. Overall though, I am pleased with the results of predators at these long distances.

Nice. Looks like under an inch center to center. I assume it’s a Condor?February 26, 2008 at 8:13 pm #34963quote Vlady:
Yep, sure is. Group measured .91ctc. I think I will be able to manage .60 on a calm day with predators and .50 with kodiaks. BTW, here is a 3 shot kodiak group from 55 yards. Couldn’t shoot a five shot group because it started raining on me.

Here is mine at 50 y. when it was bone stock .22. It’s about 0.6 in.
It is amazing that these guns don’t even have regulators…February 27, 2008 at 12:31 am #34987
Hopefully I will be able to get some groups like that when the wind calms down in the next few weeks. In North Carolina it is usually pretty windy in the late winter/spring and is therefore not very condusive for shooting tight groups.
Have you converted your condor to .25, and if so, is it more accurate at the same distance?February 27, 2008 at 12:49 am #34990
Nice shooting guys. That’s my problem, the only place I can shoot 50 yards is like a wind tunnel.February 27, 2008 at 2:33 am #34999
yes, it’s a .25 beast now, but I haven’t test it yet for accuracy. Actually I just received it from Tony ten or so days ago. Based on Tony’s test, it throws 42 gr EunJins at 970 fps with a custom one piece Tim’s top hat.
A full report is coming. Just don’t know when, kinda busy 🙁February 27, 2008 at 3:41 am #35006
Take your time Vlady. I can’t wait to hear about it.February 27, 2008 at 4:53 am #35020knifemakerParticipant
Yeah, Me too “V”. Love those .25’s!!!
Nice group! Know what you mean. Wind is terible here now. A good heavy .25 could really help here!

Knife I have a good one in (.25) and in high winds it’s a bitch still, I’m learning how to dope the wind and that’s an art all by it’s self. If you want to learn how to do this watch “shooter” or read the book, or stay in this forum…I have both and I’m still learning 😮February 27, 2008 at 5:45 pm #35049riffraffParticipant
In my experience, the .25 isnt really any more accurate than my .22, but the .25 is more consistent in its grouping. Doing my part, the groups are the same size each and every time. I see reports of groups from you guys that blow my mind. I can honestly say I hope its only me causing my problems.
Ive only shot kodiaks, Crow magnums, and both EJs in the .25 so far, and the POI only shifts about .5″ up for kodiaks and CMs. Basically I can shoot any pellet without worrying about changing aiming points (too much).
Wierd thing though, the domed 37gr EJs group horrible (same experience in .22 caliber, I guess Im unlucky), while the 42gr pointed once group quite well.
Kodiaks of course shoot the best. Crow magnums shoot slightly under 1″ @ 50 yards, Kodiaks around .5″, 42gr EJs around .6″, and domed EJs about 3″ every time.
Ive noticed in both calibers, the domed EJs fit very tight. I have to push very hard to chamber these. The 42gr push in tight, but much easier.
I wonder if they were sized slightly smaller if they would shoot better in my guns.February 27, 2008 at 6:27 pm #35053quote RiffRaff:
I have the same experience with the Eun Jins as you in .22 caliber. At 35 yards I can get dime-sized groups and then a Eun Jins group opens up to 1.25 from the same distance. I wish they made the PEJ’s in .22 caliber, that would be great if they did.March 1, 2008 at 4:58 am #35197knifemakerParticipant
Thank Photo! Problem here though is that it is gusting like crazy. Swirling. Changing direction. Texas is famous for it. You never know when it is going to change on you again. The hardest part is the gust are Rapid on off. It can drive you nut’s!
Doping a normal wind is a cake walk compared to this! Man, I’ll be glad when summer gets here.
