  1. if you are shooting average weight 22 s of very heavy 177 s it sounds about right . if you feel you have a problem you will need a chrono . if the gun is shooting accurately out to 45 it is sounds ok .
  2. you wont believe went out for a cycle after reading this and found a road side leather sofa . cut some leather out quick may go back tomorrow if its still and get more . in the dark I was not sure if it was leather but looking at home in better light it is .
  3. if you have never made bands before , I would go for tubes first . You may be fine making flat bands first but you will get failures untill you get it right . You will get failures with tubes but less they are more forgiving ,
  4. some weight written out and about for bisley mags are wrong they state a too higher value . also a tighter pellet in the barrel will give different reading its not just weight .
  5. I made some much better bands for my barnett using rolyan green tube and a 80mm x 20mm homemade pouch .
  6. making your own is the only way to go . Rolyan orange or green bands with a constrictor not to tie on the pouch is a start or a roller cutter and a cutting mat you will also need to make some kind of jig to tie the bands to gether if you want to try flat bands . tubes are easyer to mess with just need tube and some sort of cord dont tie them to tight .
  7. IF you can get a scope on that gun it may shoot a little high
  8. you may want to try different pellets before you go for a tune .JSB use soft lead I believe in their pellets I believe , also a heavyer soft lead pellet will give you more power from a PCP air gun . one extra ft lbs of power can be obtained with different pellets easy .also if your gun is unregulated not sure if it is or not , but if it is unregulated you will also get a power curve .
  9. I am still using TBG for 9.5 mm steel , chrono are a very usefull thing once you have got one you think how did I manage with out one before .
  10. i have usde the tubes also , orange and green seemed ok . I would risk trying there bands if cheap or eazy to get , but TBgold has a proven track record and some of the chinese stuff is also good (unless you have the cronofear) , but also if you as the man says in the clint eastwood film ...iz gosta know .. get some and find out . )
  11. you will have to learn to make your own . tube or flat its the only way
  12. I have messed with tapered bands did not get on with them haven't bothered to go back and try more . dont think its that big a deal straight or tapered . straight bands like tubes last a bit longer . today there is so many ways to go when I was younger the choice was square rubber 3/16 or 1/4 inch , rubber bands or old push bike inner tube . You will just have to try different things
  13. your bands have to match your ammo . If I use straight double 15 mm wide theraband gold I shoot 9.5 mm bb say . the band may be a little heavy but its ok . low speed of ammo or bands that are to heavy will effect accuracy .
