    Rested on bean bag and with a gentle hold and perfect follow through, i would expect little fingernail groups at 45 yds, with no wind.IE smaller group than a 5p

    If the kit is new then put a few hundred pellets through it first.

    Regards

    good advice from steve, springers need a running in period, at least 500 shots to get the seals and bearing surfaces bedding in!

    another bit of advice is, dont put an expensive scope on it intill it's run in, even a TX can be a bit rough when brand new!

    Accuracy wise though with 4.52 JSB one holers at 30yds and a 12mm ten shot group at 40yds is within most peoples capability, I used to shoot test groups with my HW98 at 40yds and no matter how pifflingly small a group I managed my mate Bob always managed to do a smaller one with his TX!
