I found Artemis to be more powerful than SX100 Pegasus.
This also seems to be the general consensus.

Today’s shooting, Sourcing Napier pellet lube
Hello,

I shot only one set of thirty shots. It was cold and windy outside this evening, and I had run out of the target papers. Once I came inside the house, I wasn’t in the mood for printing a few more and going back outside to shoot a couple of more sets.

It was a lowly 222 out of 300, as per my system.

For the past couple of days, I was doubting my rate of progress with my shooting. So, today I decided to chart my shooting data and graph my progress. Well, as the following picture depicts, the general trend is upwards. It lifted my mood somewhat.

I watched a few videos on YouTube about washing and lubricating pellets. Napier pellet lube generally got good reviews. Does anyone know where from can I buy it?

Don't spoil the gun. You can try these in sdb to improve it. But precihole will deteriorate if you do anything.I have other guns and vx100. So I can say it authoritatively.Also u cant see any threads about tuning precihole here.That tells the story clearly.Finally RF model is the best choice to avoid rusting with regular use.That is the only right thing you done with it. Also don't remove the washer. It's not for preload.I mentioned only about the spring. You can replace the spring with club model spring of less coils available at precihole website and avoid cutting any coils from spring. You can switch the needed spring anytime. For target shooting,club spring is more than enough. Also get more accuracy.preload is the number of coils compressed to fit in the receiver. You can choose preload to your need and preferences

Always ask suggestion from members before doing anything
:agree:

Precihole club model are meant for target shooting. Also other model takes time to settle with good grouping just like any air rifle. Will never expect tight grouping out of the box ( though I got good grouping being a novice target paper shooter) . Every rifle takes time to settle down. I own a VX100 and NX100 polaris. I took time with both of them. And they settle very good. At least both being plinking rifles apart from club models, performed very well on the paper after consuming some 100+ shots in the break in period. The best part of precihole rifles is that they don't require any such tweaking since they have very good internals. Why switch club spring on a peagus when u can go for a club model if more inclined towards target shooting.! What I mean to say is that they have an option for respective requirement. Wiping them with gun oil and applying a bit of preci moly is what I do. And they work perfectly. 2 years and counting. I don't see a need to open it up and do any altering with the internals. They are so perfectly finished! I have used following pellets:

G Smith flat head: good on paper, no tight fit
G Smith high impact: nice fit, good results on plinking at 20+ yards
Precipell Round and Sting: as usual best to use!
H&N crow magnum (for pest control): tight fit and deforming
Master Shot FH: good at paper as well as 20+ yards plinking

Both of my rifles, one being springer other being nitro piston have different feel and shooting experience. But I can proudly recommend them to anyone!

Also, I joined a local fitness centre today to improve the stability of my leading hand.

Cheers!



P.S. To Maroon_d3vil,
Thanks for your input and suggestions.

--- Holding the gun tightly with your forehand arm will reduce your accuracy specially in springers.
---- choose right pellets for your perticular gun in terms of weight, size -perfectly fitting in your barrel, shape- check the shape of each pellets, and properly pellet seating etc.
----- check all the bolts,screw or any loosened parts including front and rear sight.
----- adjust your trigger pull which suits you best.
----- check piston seal as well as breach seal too.
----- if you are not habituated then try use your dominant eye for aiming.
----- check your posture of body, neck and also uneven surface may effect your accuracy.
----- Do simple excercise (to strengthen your arm), balancing, breathing techniques etc.

Thank you for your input.
It is well appreciated.

Shooting update

Post by Anupam Goswami » Sun Jan 13, 2019 11:09 pm

Hello,


After joining the fitness centre, my leading shoulder has been sore, and it reflects in my scores. This soreness should go away in a few days, and I expect the stability of my leading arm to gradually improve.

I have been shooting regularly.

Following picture depicts my shooting data so far. In the last spread, a lot of shots were bunched together in approximately a one centimetre group, but, to the left of the bullseye on the border of six and seven point rings. By the time I decided to adjust the windage, it was too late and I ended up scoring 219. I am still shooting at least five to six fliers(my definition of a flier being comparatively generous) in every set. This, I feel is more due to a lapse in concentration than anything else.

Also, I am getting used to the grip on the Precihole Pegasus. I hated it before. I have also noticed (from the pictures, of course) that a vast majority of air rifles that are reputedly accurate, have a pistol grip which is closer to being perpendicular to the action.

I have also noticed that by resting the top portion of the butt against my shoulder, the trigger hand is almost free. It allows me to notice the movement of the rifle when I pull the trigger. Now, I can improve on my trigger finger motion to reduce this particular movement. This resting position of the butt has also greatly reduced the muzzle flip. So my shots are not flying higher(again, I am being generous :) ) than my point of aim.


Cheers!

Hello,

A pressing matter required my undivided and constant attention.

But now I am back and will shoot a few sets this evening.

Artemis has been fixed.
