    As previously posted on your last long range thread buddy.
    Welcome to attend the vhtv charity weekend and have a bit of a laugh with some shooting thrown in you never know you might enjoy it. Can forward dates and details if you wish

    I shoot a Walther LGM-2 10mtr indoor rifle out to 100 yards, its 5.5fpe and .177, running diopter sights.

    When the weather plays ball its possible to get a 3 inch group, when its windy…. dream on !!

    I must say this rifle amazes me with its consistency, its meant for indoor 10mtr, and yet holds its own against 10-11fpe rifles using scopes and what must be considered crazy ranges considering its power, its a damn fine gun. I've had a hit on a 40mm knockdown at 100 yards, standing, and a bullseye shot on a 3 inch shoot-n-c target, again at 100, but this time I was sitting.

    I love the LGM-2 and have a real soft spot for the SSP match rifles (I shoot a Steyr LG1 myself) so awesome to hear they are keeping up with the full power guns!!


    I've just put the deposit down on a FX Independence which will be my new bench/long range gun, excited to get it setup and dialled in!!

    A couple of Quick question, I have an AA S400, managed to get 65 yards out of it and hit the target.

    What In theory is the maximum?
    Is there a way to improve the performance to get it further.

    Fairly new to all this and thought it would be a good fun way into tinkering.
    All advice greatfully recieved.

    Can you download Chairgun? If so have a look at the feature Maximum Distance, with your S400 if running at above 11fpe you should be able to shoot 100yds without any trouble. The maximum range shown by Chairgun depends on your fpe and the pellet used and the angle of elevation, but theoretically a pellet should be able to go in excess of 300yds albeit to no practical purpose.

    i saw a very old T.R.Robb video (UK) & a .177 pellet from a 11.7 ftlb springer went 600yds (As above. Albeit to no practical purpose.)

    Can anyone advise how far out the targets go at Lee Valley AGC? It's good fun going long range with sub12 springers.

    Golf balls at 50 yards, knock-down targets at 60 yards. Unsurprisingly, I enjoy more consistency with my .177 than my .22.

    I'm still smacking them golfballs.. but now we have some at 85 yards. Had 4 in a row t'other day.

    Good thing is with golfballs is they respond to how you hit them ie the swing back and forth if you centre hit em and right or left if you side hit em .

    The four I hit were 3 in the middle. I'm taking some targets up the farm on a calm day ...really stretch it out. A lad I know hit an egg at 250 yards .....first shot.. TX200 .177 ...in the bloody middle!
    Same lad hit our 1.25" bell at 70 yards 4 times in a row.....STANDING!! ...STANDING.

    NB new shooters seeing this... do not use golfballs nearer than 65 yards ...ricochets are dangerous. Even at long ranges it is possible. ...

    They can be set out to approx 80 Yards.

    Our range is pretty much unlimited as to distance so i usually shoot from 50yds upwards and have days when i can consistently hit targets at 100yds +.....depending on the wind which is challenging and very inconsistent due to the open site.

    Regularly shoot 75m in my garden, stretch it out to 100 m on the range. Hw100 and short stroked TX. About 40mm groups achievable once I get my eye in and weather permitting.
    Wind can make things interesting out at this range.

    Long Range.

    I use a BSF 60 out to 75yards, and can hit a fly's legs, if its still long enough. Mind the wind must be less than 10mph.
