I was wondering what is the highest fpe you guys are getting on your .22 Marauders? I want to work between two setups.
The first is the factory setup. It offers a lot of shots and a good fpe for the small stuff,
The second would be the highest fpe the rifle could muster at an accurate 40 yrds. Probably a small shot count but deadly on bigger game.
Anybody working with this?
for most people, the M-Rod runs around 25fpe with factory settings.
Without much trouble in tweaking the settings, I got it to shoot just under 29fpe with JSB Exacts 15.8 gn, averaging around 900fps for 30 consistent shots. (At the time, I didn't have any JSB 18s, or Kodiaks to test)
After it returned from the AZ mountaintop, My Greg Davis M-Rod is shooting 35fpe with JSB 18.1s at 925fps, also for 30 consistent shots. Haven't tried the Kodiaks yet.
