It has been awhile since we have had an airgun post, so let’s fix that with something truly worthwhile. Professional air gunner and social media personality, “Ted” from Ted’s Holdover has a relaxed style that can get almost anyone interested in to the world of air gunning. He is an ethical hunter and a true marksman, making long distance shots with pellets seem truly easy. To top it off, Ted’s scope-cam videos are well put together, often catching pellets in flight and documenting seemingly impossible shots.
In this episode, Ted places 10 shots into one grouping that measures less than 1 MOA at 100 yards. Not a small feat when you consider .25 caliber pellets weighing in at 27 grains and traveling at 925fps will be moved by even the slightest breeze. If you need evidence of the shots, or just enjoy his videos, Ted’d latest upload is below.
Impressive shooting. The FX Impact seems like a solid performer in the high-end world of Pre-Charged Pneumatic airguns. I especially like the rail/bipod attachment placed near the trigger guard – I’d like to give that a try one of these days. Ted also talks about a technique similar to one used by competition rimfire shooters. Using a sizing sorter or filter, he talks about grouping like-sized pellets for better consistency.
In reality, these high-end PCP guns rival the best rimfire guns currently available. Even when it comes to their rich pricing.
