First 25 rounds fired out of the gun, including the sight-in (upper left).  Groups were fired from upper left, then down to lower right in a "Z" pattern.  Five round groups at 12x at 25 yards using Hades pellets.  Only had to fix the cant in the crosshairs within the rings, and clean the barrel.  Did not get around to testing decibel level, but there is a Donny adapter to further quiet the gun.  I like the looks of it as-is so I'll probably stay with this configuration.  The gun is probably around 100db.  On a single charge I can get 50 shots at around 32ft. lbs. (need to chrony, but this is what I've been told).  Looks and feels like a Daystate Air Ranger clone.  You will need to use the clip to shoot the gun.  Basically impossible to shoot single shot using your fingers, similar to an edgun.

Tried 21gr. H&N slugs out of the windy city @ 25 yards.

These Groups make the .218 21gr. not a contender to topple the Hades.  Next up: 23gr. H&Ns.

Tried .218 22 H&N 23gr. & 25gr. slugs @ 25 yards - five shot groups.  Now it is just a matter of moving the reticle to the right and more testing with the 23gr. 

.218 23gr.:

Nice rifle, looks like 23gr did well. Nice gun for Hunting once dialed in.

For 25 yards that's more spread than I would have expected.

Five shot groups at 30 yards using these slugs:

Did not even need to adjust scope.

However, the remaining three, five shot groups were 1". 

Onto the 20.2gr. NSAs.  I need three consistent, five shot groups in order to re-sight the gun with a new projectile.

Finally!  All this testing is becoming a real chore.  Anyway, tried 30 rounds of the 17.5gr. NSA previously - confirmed they are not "the pellet" at 30 yards.

Went back to the 20.2gr. NSA.  Last two, five round groups at 30 yards.  Yes, you can use slugs in everyday guns, but you will be performing a lot of testing.  One flier in each.  I'm too spoiled with AA and Daystate triggers now.
