Hello,
Today finally I did some tests with my fully upgraded VSR-10 by famous Cracow tuner - Dexter and check what is the real performance of my gun. With real measured distances and with no bullshit like “I shot a guy in head from 150m using stock JG BAR-10 5 times in a row”.
Config of VSR:
· PDI 6.01 500mm
· Maple Leaf Autobot 80 deg
· AA HU chamber
· CNC Panther Nub
· full set from polish “bart_a”, carefully polished : piston, cylinder, cylinder head & nozzle, spring guide, spring, 90 deg. trigger
· inner barrel stabilizer – propably AA
· VSR-10 Marui Base
· Hawke Vantage 3-9x40AO optics with Leapers mount
· 3.55J using BLS 0.48g
I have tested my gun in really good conditions: 30mins before sunset, absolutely zero wind in place presented in photo. Shooting was quite fast, about ~90sec per 10 shoots with knee position without any additional support. I think my aiming error was about ~5-10 cm per 50m and ~15-20cm per 90m. Ammo was carefully washed and dried.
Results of shooting presented on the photos. Size of paper sheet was 90x120 [cm]. 50m and 70m distances I aimed directly in black cross and for 90m I aimed just ~25cm above cross.
I also have experimented with 100m – I could hit target size of jacket in one of photos with about 50% eff. I needed to aim about 1m above. My bb flight trajectory is as flat as possible. I don’t use over-hops, because my most common shot distance is about 40-70m.
What I spotted:
· Shooting in long ranges like 90 or 100 meters needs perfect levelling of a gun. Any tilt in left or right side will result with missed shot, because BB will turn aside in last flight phase.
· BLS BBs are not perfect. Sometimes I can see BB, which could fly away in random direction with no known reason. It happens randomly, generally maybe in 1-2/10 shoots. Probably its manufacturing errors.
· I’m not super shooter. I have some problems with tilting a gun, especially in left side
· Few months ago I have experimented with hi-end bbs: Longbow 0.48g and have terrible results. About 2x worse accuracy than BLS. Why? Magic :p

What do you think about this results? Maybe you have tested your guns? How your VSRs performance looked like?
I'm looking for opinion - is this result fine? Or there is a place to achieve better performance? What you think should I try to impove perfomance? Another bucking, nub? Should I enlarge PDI 6.01 window? What accuracy on 50m or 70m you will say is good grouping? Thank for any help! :)

I found the opposite - Longbow was superior to BLS. With that said, it wasn't a gigantic difference, certainly not double the dispersion. What I would say is that if you do have trouble with rifle cant, get either a scope or rail-mounted level. Not had a chance to shoot above 36m for a while (the length of my garden) but I doubt I would do very much better overall, so I would say that you're in the right ballpark.

Edit: Not a VSR, but my old Maruzen APS96 would drop every shot into an A4 size target at 70m using Maruzen Supergrandmasters. Except when the wind wasn't kind ;)

Looks like were in the same ballpart. I use bls and get those same outliers. I guess if we were hardcore we'd pop for some .68 ballbearings and find out for sure what our guns could do without bb quality as a variable.
One thing I recommend is throwing up a horsemat or some black landscape fabric behind the target. Makes tracing the path real easy and helps figure out the hiphop at defined distances and settings.

@Doctor Jest How do you look at the level and through the scope at the same time? I got one on my gun but never use it

I second the black target, I have 320mm and 500mm circular steel plates that I've painted matte black and hung from trees at set ranges, very useful. I will eventually set up a large piece of metal roofing painted black, but I'm content for now.

Guys, can you tell me what do you think about those result? In 1-10 scale how much will you be content with accuracy as mine? Or another question: What accuracy is possible to achieve witch best possible setup/what best accuracy you saw in your airsoft career using VSR? ;)

Yesterday I have enlarged my window in PDI 6.01 500mm barrel in Dexter lab i Krakow. Now I'm going to test another setups (currently have Panther CNC + Autobot 80) like:
1. Mr Hop 85 + Panther nub,
2. Mr Hop 85 + Omega nub,


If it won't result in better accuracy in next step I will test 3."X-range 70" and 4."Decepticons 80" with some combinations with nubs above. Also bought one more time Longbows .48 for second chance witch perfectly cleaned system and different setups (as above 1-4).

PS. Do you also have white traces/marks of bbs in the barrel? I spotted many of them after using BLS .48. Is it normal? Pics below.


Hope to find my gold setup. Wish me luck :)

That's very good, I'd be pleased with that, but like yourself I would still try to improve it.
It seems that your barrel is lapped which is a VERY important step, and I trust that your tuner is the guy from Facebook, who seems to be even more serious than I am, so you may be about at ultimate accuracy with plastic BBs.

I will be trying some Begadi buckings in my M4 and homemade DMR, so I think it would be interesting for you to try out their VSR/GBB ones as they seem to have the best description of any bucking out there.
I would also recommend trying my SS-nub, it can be made very cheaply and is obviously my favorite nub out there.

One more thing that will make a big difference is sorting your BBs.
I'd see if a BB sorter similar to the Laylax one could be built, but within the size range of your BBs and maybe split into a couple more different sizes for the sorted BBs to be more alike.
This would be done by using a plate of metal or plastic, drilling lots of holes in it, and reaming the holes precisely with your desired size of reamer. You would then make walls for it and a catch box underneath, or smaller size plates underneath. This would be best done after washing your BBs, and maybe coating them with your own wax or coating.
I would also look at THIS video from our own WYZ2285 about polishing BBs. I think that although it may be less important these days, I bet that at your level it will improve results at least a little bit
The BB sorter will be an eventual project of mine, but currently my guns are just meeting my expectations after years of screwing around, as well as BB polishing, but again it is pointless for guns where the BBs are not it's limiting factor.

Thx, yes Dexter from Cracow "Seriwis Dextera..." did this enlarging operation. I'm lucky to live 10 minutes from his workshop.
Sorting bb's? Hm I'm not sure if its not impossible in home conditions. We just wanna catch 0.01mm differences. Im not sure if its possible without specialistic stuff in home conditions.
Using wax? Wut? It won't destroy hop up effect and will dirty the barrel? How you wax bbs?
Polishing - I heard about it. Your movie shows that it works (i watched it before, about 1y ago), but how to do it with my bb's? He just show results, but not how to.

Well sometimes BBs from the same bag will be 5.93 to 5.95mm, and it will depend on where you measure them as they are not always round. I think that if you did make a sorting system like the Laylax one but with different sizes, you'd see an improvement. I'd do 5.93-5.95 as there's rarely stuff larger or smaller, and I'd go up by half, so 5.93, 5.93.5, 5.94, so on. I'm certainly going to try this, maybe in 2023 when I feel like buying a handful of reamers and spending a day drilling holes.

Pretty much all BBs have a wax of some sort on them. In theory it makes the BB better as you can smooth out scratches without losing weight, so the BB will go farther and be more accurate. I've not experimented much with this yet, but I think that it could have promise.

I'm not sure exactly how @wyz2285 polished his BBs, but you could simply attach a soda bottle to a drill and tape the trigger on a low speed for a while, or use a cheap rock tumbler. This will reduce size and mass though, so as little as you can get away with us best.

For all these years I am shooting BB's with everything you can imagine : From spring pistol to a top notch snipers and DMR's I have ranked the BB's by brands as per the weight and it looks like this :
1. Airsoft spring pistols, EBB pistols : 0.20 grams : 1. Swiss Army platinum edition ; 2. ASG Blaster Devil ; 3. BLS
2. GBB, CO2 pistols : : 0.23 grams : 1. Valken ; 2. Elite Force ; 3. ASG Blaster devil
3. AEG rifles ( CQB & AR replicas ) , single shot shotguns : 0.25 grams : 1. Swiss Army Diamond edition ; 2. Elite force ; ASG Blaster Devil
4. GBB assault rifles and high grade AEG's : 0.28 grams : 1. Thunder Pro grade ; 2. Valken ; 3. BLS
5. DMR's , Stock bolt spring snipers ; AEG snipers : 0.32 grams : 1. ASG open blaster ; 2. Thunder ; 3. Swiss Army diamond edition
6. High end bolt snipers : 0.36 grams ( Valken black diamond grade) ; 0.42 grams ( Accuracy International ) ; 0.48 grams ( Accuracy international )

Here are few photos with results of my top Sniper in my collection Novritsch TAC 338 Limited Edition with Scope Night force one mag shots at every range ( about 25-26 BB's ):

My idea was to shoot a competition size standard paper targets 14 x 14 cm to compare the Airsoft sniper rifles performance vs Pellet Air guns in 0,177 cal ( 4.5 mm ) and I found that the Airsoft snipers are very close as accuracy to the pellet guns ;-)
I am not shooting at range over 70 meters as I am not a gamer due my life in a wheel chair . But shooting targets every single day ;-)
Cheers mate !

Good stuff! My gun is a 3.2J SSG10 with a crazy jet and Mr Hop, and I'd say I get similar (perhaps slightly less) results than you did here. I've got a tree I shoot at 93m - approximately 1.5ft diameter - and I hit it roughly 70% of the time - more if the wind is consistent.

Tbh, wind and proper shooting technique are the main drivers in accuracy at that range, IME. If the wind is consistent kentucky windage is easy enough, but proper holding the gun vertically takes some focus. As you said, you quickly realize when your gun is canted even slightly. Makes a strong argument for a level

OMG. Is it even real? What is the size of this target? Its 14x14 standard target? Your score beat mine few times... How did you achieve as good accuracy? Looks impossible for airsoft. What is built of your gun?

Well, it is to late for me to be nicknamed a young liar LOL - in a month time I'll be 60 . To be honest after few mid hand rifles like CYMA, APS and ARES , I've decided to spend 800 bucks for a Novritsch TAC338 Limited edition as it is mentioned as the cream of the cream in the society of bolt action snipers . It came with an M150 spring ( the strongest of the all three options , which were M90; M130 and M150 ) first test gave me good 2.7 Joules with 0.48 grams BB's . I just brought a M190 spring and replaced it with the stock one . Actually this platform can handle even M220 but I've decided not to pull the Devil's tail messing with the technological limits stated by the guys from Vienna. And just a second thing I've changed was the barrel . From experience I know that the tightest barrels giving the highest speed , BUT the accuracy is suffering. So the stock barrel 475 mm long and 6.01 mm tight I've replaced with a 510 mm / 6.03 mm stainless steel one from the series Mad Bull of ASG . And nothing else ! Now it has comfortable 4 joules and shoots as good as a regular PCP air gun at ranges up to 70 m. That is my limit as a crippled gunner . May be couple of things are from a big importance : Firstly as a ex special forces sniper I have some experience with the real McMillan TAC338 and I can feel my Novritsch as a hug with my old friend. Secondly : Every well trained sniper shooter knows how to breathe, where and how to contact with the weapon, to choose the right fraction of the second to squeeze the trigger. With the rifle in my hands I am isolated from the world - can't hear or see anything else , but the scope oculus and the target. Concentration is vital for the snipers. There is another thing : There are some limits of the Airsoft weapons, which you can not avoid or eliminate . With such a light ammo ( max. weight on the market are 0.48 g ) you can't expect any miracles at ranges over 100 yards. You can "pump up" the energy way higher , but the extra power doesn't help much to accuracy. About the "phenomena" with the BB's flying like mad wasps in all directions - there's nothing we can do - it is just one of the Cons of the airsoft . It looks to me that you've done enough on your system . Now you need more practicing on targets . To use a 4 x 32 scope is useless. For high range precise sniping you need a very powerful system , different than the one you using during a game and your targets are with the size of a human corpse . To achieve good group on my targets I am using 6-32 x 60 "Night force" scope which is almost twice the price of my TAC338, but I can see the flies crawling on my target from 70 meters . If you going to have 20-30 shots twice a month during some games you play, you must forget to be a excellent sniper. I am shooting 500-600 BB's daily . Sometimes more. Don't underestimate the exercise and the training. Cheers mate ;-)

Hi Cripplegunner. I left message for you in "Conversations" in your profile :) Looking for your accuracy ~10x10 [cm] and mine 45x45 [cm] on 70 meters we can say that your accuracy is about 4,5x times better that mine. I'm shoting since 2008 using airguns, I can achieve accuracy like 5x5 [cm] on 50 meters without support with spring airgun, so lets say I can shot a little bit. I think that my accuracy on 70 meters is far worse than yours on this distance. So my questions are:
1. Do you really think I can go from 45x45 to 10x10 just by practising shooting? I think, that my error is far less than gun & BB's error.
2. You said that you replaced 6.01 with 6.03. Do you think that PDI 6.01 isn't the best option for accurate shooting and should be replaced? PDI is widely known as a best possible inner barrel on the market. Now I dob't know what to do? Replace it with 6.03?
3. What BB's and weight did you use to achieve results as presented above? Did you do some magic like cleaning/sorting/polishing BB's?
4. Will you replace something in my config? I have nubs like: Panthera CNC red nub, Omega (maple leaf) and custom flat like this LINK and rubbers : Mr Hop 85, Autobot 80 and Decepticons 80. Do you think that there is any "gold config" which can give better results that all other? Ofc combined with AA chamber, PDI 6.01 500mm inner barrel and cleaned BLS 0.48g.
5. Is there any cheap way to sort out outliers BB's like <5.94mm and >5.96mm? Can it imporve accuracy?

All tips will be very helpful for me :)

Thanks

1 When shooting off of a rest, I think that you would have to be moving an awful lot to change results, but like when shooting anything black powder or air powered, hold the gun as steadily as possible during and after the shot in order to not sway things. Since airsoft guns, airguns, and black powder have a longer delay between the trigger and actually firing, there is a larger gap to mess things up. With airsoft traveling at 300-400 FPS, the BB is in the barrel FAR longer than any real bullet, so that increases the window to mess things up even more. This also sort of applies to very long range rifle shooting as well since the room for error is so small.
Some optics also change their point of impact depending on where your head is positioned, and due to our bodies not being 100% repeatable and rigid, these scopes and other sights will yield a very large group.
Idk what causes this exactly, but some things do it and some don't.

2 I think that bore diameter has little to do with accuracy, only bore quality, which is why a well lapped barrel will outperform everything on the market. You could replace your barrel with a larger bore if you can afford the experiment, but I predict you will see no change and have spent $200 on a part you don't need.

4 I would suggest that you follow my SS-nub guide in my signature.
For buckings or R-hops I haven't really figured everything out so I can't really give you any solid comment, but I think that experimentation is important. The Maple Leaf Autobot 2021 bucking is a solid choice, along with the Decepticon, but I have little experience with the MR so I can't say much about that. I am trying out some Begadi buckings in my DMR whenever they arrive, so I'll see how those are compared to everything else I've tried, so they may be worth a look for you.

You may have to refine by manufacturer to save some time while searching

5 I heard about these guys that would sort BBs for a fee like 8 years ago with some proprietary technique, but I never heard much about it, and the website has likely disappeared since then. I believe that HunterSeeker5 was a part in that, and from my attempts at conversations with him, he was not at all informative or helpful. He has since disappeared along with his website and YouTube channel, for the better I'd say.

1 . There is no way to jump for a day from 45 x 45 to 10 x 10 cm. It is big "PLUS" that you have some experience with air guns. Don't think that I make this groupage every day ! These results are my best of the best. and something very important : I am shooting ONLY indoors
2 . Once you get 6.01 barrel - leave it . but do not attempt to increase the power and the BB's will fly like crazy bees more often
3 . My top ammo is
ASG Airsoft Precision Ammunition Heavy - production of Accuracy International UK . They cost fortune but I don't care about the price ; 1000 BB's are 32 Euro but I am happy of their performance . Sometimes I am shooting with a Valken from USA. They are very close to AI, but not very much . Sometimes I use also Jeoff's super precision BB's. But AI are the best . I trust to my suppliers about the equality and the size of my BB's If they said 5.95 +/- 0.001 mm I am agree ;-) Sometimes I am checking the weight and didn't found any significant differences in the weight : +/- 0.02 g. When I am going for top sfooting I am weighting like 100-150 BB's and choose only these who were 47.98 grams , what the jewelary scale shows. for a long range shooting the weight also is not less important than the diameter.

4 . I would go for a omega nub + Decepticons 80 degree .
5 . BLS are just a middle hand Taiwanese BB's for the wide market . Don't expect miracles from these BB's . Go for AI, Valken or Range Force. Well, they are expensive but for them the compromise with the quality is not an option ;-)
Stay well mate , and keep me posted what you have in your scope and targets ;-)

1. You have 70meters of indor conditions? Wow, amazing! Really want to have base to testing as you have :)
2. So what energy in your opinion is the best with PDI 6.01 500mm barrel using 0.48 BB's?
3. I saw this AI BB's LINK for 130 PLN = 28,5 Euro in my local shop (no shippping cost!), but nobody never mentioned them as a good BB's and even test them, so I never think about them as BB's worth to testing. Did you ever tested BB's like: Novritsch 0.49, BLS 0.48(or by Specna Edge Series), Geoffs 0.45 BIO, Longbow 0.48. I tested Longbows on 3 configs (Maple Leaf buckings and omega and panthera nubs) and has a huge spread (down-high especially) comparing to middle hand BLS. Longbows were much more slight, so maybe they don't want to cooperate with silicone rubber like ML '21 series?
4 & 5. Why this config? Why you think it will fit the best? Just asking. I will inform you all in this post. I hope I will improve my results in future and attach better targets photos.
6. Do you wash/polish/other magic your AI BB's? Or just loading and shooting?
7. " Sometimes I am checking the weight and didn't found any significant differences in the weight : +/- 0.02 g. When I am going for top sfooting I am weighting like 100-150 BB's and choose only these who were 47.98 grams , what the jewelary scale shows." Can you expalin it with more details? What accuracy your jewelery scale has? 47.98 grams you mean weight of 100 BBs or one BB? 47.98 sounds like weight of 100 (100 * 0.48), so 47.98 is just sum of weight of 100 BB's with average weight ~0.4798, but its just AVG so can be BB's like 0.45 and 0.51 and avg is still 0.48.

Cheers!

Forgot to mention this in my other post, but there's two ways to sort BBs.

Sorting by weight categories, this will affect the amount that BBs hop up or down, which has helped a bit in my experience.
Sorting by size, this will likely sort the BBs into weight categories just because, but sorting by size is important since if a BB is .01 mm larger than another, it is getting pushed into the contact patch of your bucking .01mm further, giving it more hop than smaller BBs. I think that this is the more important type of sorting, but it is more expensive than a $30 scale. Of course, once you make or buy something similar to the Laylax BB sorter, you can sort thousands of BBs in a matter of minutes, while with a scale you will spend a very long time sorting BBs.
For ultimate supreme ultra mega accuracy, you would be sorting by size and then sort the size categories by weight, but this is only important if you are an absolute madlad sniper, or are doing target stuff like @Cripplegunner.

I will be trying those ASG .48g BBs as they are $25 on a site I occasionally use, but I do wonder about polishing BBs in a rotary tumbler type machine to see if cheaper BBs can be improved.

Also, one thing that is less of an issue but still probably exists is BB porosity, where BBs have air bubbles and may be unevenly distributed, making BBs curve in various directions due to having an uneven center of gravity. This is an issue with cheap FMJ real steel ammo where there will be air pockets in the tips of some bullets, making the projectile have a non concentrical flight pattern, significantly widening shot groups.

1. I am not in position to run thru the woods and bushes with my wheelchair , that's why I am a indoor plinker :) In the building where I live, on each floor we have a corridor 25 meters long. This is my medium range shooting place. Just 100 meters from my house there is an abandoned milk processing plant. The conveyor room has a perfectly smooth and even floor and a length of about 72-73 meters. Even the windows are not broken and there is no movement of air inside. In a word - ideal conditions for high-precision shooting. That's why I've mentioned above that my maximum range doesn't exceed 70 meters ;-)
2. My TAC338 is with 4-4.1 joules output and it seems to be the golden edge with 6.03 barrel and a 0.48 g ammo . I am not saying that I am right , just these specs combination giving me satistfactional results. I think with PDI 6.01 mm "pipe" your good power would be like 3.7-3.8 joules .
3 . I am shooting BB's which I can find around as can't afford to add any extra cost for shipping from abroad . I am just a passionate airsofter , but not a maniac for God sakes :cool: Silicone buckings aren't a best solution for bolt snipers . Silicone rubbers are more suitable for AEG replicas with energies up to 2-2+ joules .
4 & 5 . I don't have your rifle and I am just guessing based on my experience with my L96, AP40 and SSR 24 and TAC338 platforms . Be consistent in your practicing . In the sense of not shooting 1000 balls twice a month. If you have time, shoot 100 balls, but 3-4 times a week, even better every day and the results will not be late!

Good brands are also very careful about the correct internal balance of the material when making the balls, which is also very important, even very important. During the transition of the material from liquid to solid state, if the technology is imperfect (temperature, pressure, rotational problems during molding, etc.), it is possible that the balls are out of balance. Have you ever placed a ball on a perfectly horizontal glass surface and it only went somewhere? To me - yes :-(
