100 yard shot

Hi everyone I have been upgrading my sniper for quite some time now and I think I am done. My CA M24 is shooting 530 with .20 and I am using .36G BBs primarily. I have been playing with the different BBs and I cant seem to hold any accuracy past 50 yards. .40s are too heavy and drop too quickly and the .36 seem a bit heavy to .30s seem to be able to maintain the most range but they are unpredictable past 60 yards. I feel it should be able to hit a target at 75 yards with a bit of compensation. Right now at 75 yards I have to aim so high that the target has to be at the bottom of my scope just to hit the bottom of the target.
So my question is what do you guys think I should do to increase my range and accuracy? I have heard of people reducing their FPS and their BB weigh but I would like to hear what you guys have to say.

300 feet seems just to be the sweet spot or so. Depends on how you have upgraded and in my opinion how you have "zeroed" your scope.

Edit: there is another forum post about 100 yard shoot I suggest reading it ;)

Sounds like you don't have enough hop for the heavier BBs.

I am not sure of the cylinder volume of the M24 but I am guessing that your barrel is too long for the heavy bb to be pushed out accurately. There needs to be enough volume in the cylinder to push the bb out. The heavier the bb the more volume needed. Since we cannot alter the cylinder volume, we shorten the inner barrel. This should stop any barrel suck. Cheers

So a couple things to yours. if you say you are shooting 520fps but bbs are dropping its the hop up. But keep in mind that 520fps should be making light bbs act crazy.
I would decrease fps and see how you do with .32 bbs.
Also take a look at the lenght of your barrel as it might be to long. I think 1tonne covered it.

Found the problem. The barrel was not properly contacting the hopup causing a bad air seal. I had to tighten everything up and it seems to shoot good now. The only problem I am running into now is the BBs are hard to keep strait. I have been playing with the adjustments and I always seem to have a bit of rightward curve, past 60 yards.

TDC mod or hop up chamber is misplaced.

Well I have been messing with my hop up and I just cant seem to take the rightward curve out of it. I have a PDI hop-up with the dual action bars with a W hold bucking and I have put all the pressure on the left bar and take all the pressure off the right bar this did take a lot of the rightward curve out of it but it still pulls to the right slightly. I don't think the TDC mod will work with this hop-up because of the dual action bars. anyone have any ideas?

A round bb can only go straight to a certain pointed

Try shimming your hop up unit if you haven't already. I had a very similar problem with a King Arms SVD. Stuck a layer of electrical tape beside the arm to prevent the arm from wiggling and it solved everything.

I know you probably think you lose range with the heavier bbs, but the reality is even if they "drop" they will still travel much straighter than the lighter bbs. This allows you to compensate accuratly by holding over your target. I know alot of people on here dont like that method but its the most effective way to make extreme shots. Over hopping will always result on bbs flying in wierd patterns. Learn your drop and go heavy.
