Title: SX4 Long Beard XR 3” #6 JEBs HH .650
Post by: limbhanger777 on March 13, 2019, 09:04:35 PM
Just got my JEBs headhunter .650 in the mail today had to go out and try it out quick. Shot 40 yards off hand to see what it would do. 38 degrees outside and I managed to put 202 pellets in a 10” circle. I didn’t think it was too bad. I will post more pictures when I get warmer weather and a chance to pattern more.

Awesome pattern. I still have to pattern my 11-87 with the same choke. It was recommended to me to try HS #6s through it for the best results. We shall see ...

Nice pattern. I have a NWTF SX4 I just bought. Trying to get set up. Bought a IC .665 but not happy with pattern. Have you tried a 3.5 out of that choke yet?

Not trying to rain on your parade but I think #6s should do better. Looks a little ragged in my humble opinion. Here is a pattern of #5's for comparison and I would expect your 6's to beat it. I think you might be a bit overchoked if I were to guess. Like I said not trying to put it down but I think it can be improved.

I can agree its got a couple hole's but its also a 3" so thats mostly why I wanted to know if he tried a 3.5.   I have a IC .665 with 3.5 long beard #5's and got less than 150 in the 10 so trying to decide what to try next.

I would look at the payload as opposed to the shell length for a more apples to apples comparison. Mine was a 2oz load. Like I said I don't think its horrible but I would be looking for an even pattern above and beyond the total # of pellets in the circle. Some of my favorite loads won't crack 200 at 40 but it is a nice and even pattern.

Well I could have said have you shot a 2 oz load instead of a 1 3/4 oz load I guess. But its the same difference either way. Im just wanting to see if he put 202 in a 10 with a 3" I mean 1 3/4 oz shell how many did it do with a 2 oz shell.

I just recently purchased a nwtf sx4 cantilever turkey and absolutely love it. I tried an IC .665 and wasn't real happy with its performance so I ordered a .665 Sumtoy and got great results that im more then happy with. I shot 3.5" longbeard 5's out of mine
