View Full Version : Rws 56
Been giving my new RWS 56 in .22 a workout the last few weekends at the outdoor range where I shoot. Although I am a reloader, components have been very hard to get. I have a good supply laid in, but think I will hang on to loaded powder burner rounds to shoot this spring/summer.
Not many people come to the club during the cold Indiana winters.
I have gotten my groups down to about 1.3 inches at 50 yards but know I can do better.
the rifle weighs a ton, and is best shot off a rest bag. The is my first high end springer, and so far its been a treat to shoot.
Any other winter air gun shooters out there?
My shooting range today was snow covered, but the sun was out and there was very little wind.
Just for giggles, I tried by RWS out at 100 yards, not really expecting much.
I managed to shoot a 3 shot group at just a little over 2".
I was amazed. Not at my "skills" but the fact that a spring air powered rifle was capable of this kind of accuracy at 100 yards.
I did have about a 6" drop from point of aim.
I was able to pound a soft drink can from that distance.
Nice! I've been thinking seriously about a decent airgun.
I shot my best groups at 35 yards last weekend. .6 of an inch- five shots.
so far it likes the discovery pointed pellets the best.
the search for the perfect pellet goes on.
I need to order some RWS pellets. Can't find any locally.
Watch it . It is as addicting as powder burners . I have nearly as much invested in Airguns . I love shooting them, definitely assists in your overall shooting ability . My TX-200 will nail a quarter at 50 yards so much it gets boring after a while ...... not really :-)
Yesterday I shot a 1.1" group at 50 yards. there was no wind, it was sunny. I purchased a pack of variety pellets from Crosman, dome, pointed, hollow point. It seems to like the pointed pellets the best.
I took the old RWS scope I had on it off, and mounted a BSA sweet .17 scope. It is much clearer. We will see if it lasts on this springer.
I put my old RWS scope back on the 56, because the BSA scope is now wondering all over the place. Probably destroyed it.
I need to invest in a better scope for this rifle. The price on this model from AoA is now over $900, so it deserves better then a 20 year old scope.
I shot on the rifle range today, it was cold but sunny. My groups were nothing to write home about. My POI was no better at 50 yards. Probably time to check screw tightness on the stock again.
