Top of the evening, I just got through shooting/sighting my Dragonov w/ scope at 60' no hop up, Crossman .20s slight cross breeze east to west, shooting at a can of off & a Krylon paint can after the breeze stopped. I noticed that there are dents in both cans :tup: & a few B.B.s are stuck in my wooden fence. How fast is this rifle shooting to do this ? At 90' I'd hit & then miss, just almost grazing either can and BBs would almost penatrate a strip of duct tape in between both cans that was on a card board box . I'm figuring that's a sighted in scope and rifle. The missing was me rushing,not breathing. At that distance, the BBs are grouping 2-3". Now, I see why this is a nice tool for the job. I can't complain. With a heavier BB, from what I've been reading and seeing in videos, this rifle likes .3s-.4s for better accuracy. Now, I can't wait to skirmish this rifle!!!! After all was said & done, all I could do, was grin and giggle!!! Now I'm starting to believe that i might could tag some one at a decent distance. All that I've done to this rifle is smooth the trigger pull, lube it and remove the small spring, & put a scope on it. Nothing else, what's going to happen, when some minor tweeks and upgrades are done????!! This rifle is a Beast!! Also, thanks for some of the input from you guys here... :cheers:

If it's a springer A&K then it shoots around 500fps.. At that how much the European A&K SVD's shoot.

And the .20g bbs you're using are too light for decent accuracy at that high fps.

I was wondering, and at that fps would you suggest going to a .3-.4s? And yes it's a Springer A&K Dragonov. Could those light of BBs also cause damage to the piston and other upper receiver parts? I've read that to light of BB can some times explode in side of the breech:doh:, and that could get expensive, due to the not as dense as a higher weight BB, if I continue to use, I'd be asking for trouble. That's not a good thing. I bought the rifle used, and had those Crossman's around for a cheap aeg that I had, I'm glad I haven't put the .15s in the thing. I can use these BBs for my r/c rock crawler by putting them in the tires for traction, and removing the foams,and have nice squishy tires.... Thanks alot :cheers:
PS. I'm curious as to know why the company doesn't say use heavier BBs, and let the consumer continue to use to light of a BB. Is it for one of the selling points? use this weight to get this out standing fps & bragging rights? Just to see how far that little plastic thing will go :bs:? again thanks
