Welcome to 17hmr. Yes that's very possible. There's usually large POI shifts between different bullet types. Polymer tips vs hollow points vs fmj vs game points. Even with the same bullet types...

Look into a Weihrauch Hw30 or the same gun rebranded as a Beeman R7. It's a break barrel, its very quiet for a springer without a moderator. A 10 yo girl could cock it and they're ridiculously...

I bought a 457 American in 22lr for my girlfriend. Nothing done to it, it shoots on average 0.5" groups @ 50yds. I lightened the trigger adjustment since so it may do a little better. I think it's a...

If you get another 457 and you are looking for accuracy stay with a 22LR. That goes for any rifle made. 17hmr ammo is so inconsistent it will give you fits. It does me for that reason. I still love...

Sheet cork has a high percentage of cork. The cork will compress slowly over time leaving you with ever changing pressure on the barrel. Not something you want. Something similar is called cork tape...

53 and I feel like a hundred (Ache like I'm made out of cement and can't see up close). Oddly enough though I feel old I'm still shocked at how old I look when I see myself in the mirror. Yuck!

That's pretty darn good! Federal bulk FMJ shoots 2"+ in my Tikka Varmint 223 (1:8) and Howa Mini-action Ltwt 223 (1:9) with scopes. It's junk ammo for people that just like to make a lot of noise and...

What caliber T1X? If its 17hmr you're pissing in the wind. 17hmr ammo varies in quality and will throw a flier in nearly every 5 shot group. No matter what rifle.
