New A5 with Sumtoy .675...
« on: March 16, 2015, 04:00:15 PM »
First testing...

Gun shoots low, even with Fire Sight bottomed out.  Will change shim to #1 and reset rear sight...

3.5" XRD #6's...I suspected the .675 might like the XRD...too bad Win killed this shell off....

Needs to come up a bit, but the #'s are ok with me for XRD (410 +- pellets)...

More testing to follow...

Nice patterns.... I also like / shoot the XRD 6's & 5's. I have 5 boxes remaining and have that setup in one specific gun. I do not want to shoot them up setting up different gun / combos.

 I picked up a A5 in Bottomland recently, but have not had any time to play with it. Keep everyone posted on your results.

The XRD's I using are the hi-density shells...

I forgot to add how much I like the size of the Sumtoy choke, not too long....
