Today is just a downright nasty rainy, thunder storming kind of day, so no real opportunities for outdoor activities. I wanted to feed my Beeman R1 Carbine some of the JSB Exact .20 pellets I just picked up from Straight Shooters, so I setup shop in the kitchen bathroom window, and waiting for a break in the daylong downpour.
When a moment of opportunity presented itself, I opened the window. Shooting from a rested position (hand rested on windowsill) at about 60’ I started sending pellets towards the cans setup in my plinking station. It only took me three shots, and several windage clicks (.5-1” to the right) to achieve a nice center in the bottom of the can. I assume the windage adjustment was necessary to compensate for the differences between the JSB Exact Diabolo pellets and my normal Carbine shooting fare, Benjamin Sheridan Cylindrical pellets.
I only took another 15-20 shots before the next deluge started, but it was readily apparent that the Exacts and the Carbine are a perfect fit. When I did my part, I made nice (although somewhat rough) hole-in-hole groups. Getting very consistent groupings from the Carbine at 20+ yards is always a challenge, but decent results are always very satisfying.
Early days, but I am very pleased with the Exacts.
