    An Air gun like a break barrel has a fixed power setting (example:1000fps) so if you add a scope and zero it in, it will shoot the target each time and it’s time with the same yardage. What about a PCP with a scope? PCP’s doesn’t have a fixed power setting because with each shot, the air drops, so my question is Do you have to zero-in the scope with every shot you take or is it still gonna hit the bullz eye?

    I’m not the guru in this department but I put 7 pellets threw one whole today with my Talon SS so I would figure that once the scope is sited it is sited but the question is a good one.

    You can get many shots before the point of impact drops in most PCP. Even when it does drop it is over a series of shots and it not a surprise. With the Talon you can get on full power about 40-50 shots that are pretty consistent. After that aim a little higher until you make it back to the fill tank.

    Even though the pressure is decreasing the POI will be pretty close over a string of shots.
