In a previous post, I wrote about shooting the new Polymag Short hunting pellets in my HW100T, PCP. This time around, I'll be testing them in my new BSA, R10 MK 2, .22 cal PCP.
As usual, I'm testing them first at 25 yards, and if they perform well at that distance, I'll move on out to 50 yards and test them there.
I'm shooting off of a Bald Eagle mechanical front rest, and a Protektor Rabbit Ear, heavy bottom rear bag. I also have my wind flags out to help me manage the ever changing wind conditions. All groups were shot while watching the wind flags, and only shooting during the lulls.
First up, I'll shoot a group at 25 yards using this guns pellet of choice, which is the JSB 18.1 grain Jumbo Heavy. I do this to establish the accuracy level that this gun is capable of when shooting an accurate pellet.
Next, I shot three five shot groups using the Polymag Shorts. Below are pictures showing the results of those efforts.
Nothing to write home about for sure. As with my HW100T, I could see some of the pellets spiraling as they headed down range. There may be something about the bores on these guns, or the velocity that they are being launched at, but neither my Hw100T, or this BSA R10 are shooting these pellets worth a darn. I obviously won't be testing them at 50 yards.
I have some other guns that I want to test these in, but for now, I'm going to move on to some other projects. I want to get this R10 sighted in at 65 yards, in preparation for some prairie dog, and ground squirrel hunting with it in June.
Until next time, thanks for reading.
