Okay it seems like people don’t get the reason for HPA having less joule creep then spring powered systems.
Okay to start off with.
what creates Joule creep.
I already have some notes on this in this post here. “Link”
So to give people an idea of how often I do maintenance on my rifles. And what I do and when i do it.
Here is a list (ongoing) of what I did and when I did it.
*Note this is still work in progress.
So after a sore scalp after a lot of thinking, after my findings using .2g .36g .4g and .43g bbs and still getting the same joule (down to 0.02joule as the biggest difference.)
I do believe I need to do some rewriting on the “energy transfer and joule creep” post.
Anyhow my theory is this.
This is a thing you need to take in to consideration when upgrading your rifle.
As this will matter if you’re going for a rifle with the best parts for the desired fps and bb weight.
Now i will go over 4 things in this guild, that being.
1. The energy transfer.
2. Joule creep.
3. Barrel ratio.
4. How the weight of piston affects this.
5. HPA and joule creep.
Okay it’s time for some maintenance for my VSR-10 after the big game in Denmark.
And no there will not be any posts about that game as the VSR was feeling like hitting anything.
ANd the fact that I was forced to use dark bbs, thereby making it impossible to compensate for wind. Did not help on the matter.
I had 4 things I needed to fix.
1. I was shooting thread tape at some points so I need to check that.
2. It got a bang and the outer barrel got knocked loose.
3. The cylinder needs some new lubrication.
4. I need to check the hop-up rubber to see how it’s doing as I put in a new one before I went down to Denmark.
So it seems i don’t have any joule creep at all?!?! hmm weird.
okay I guess its time to talk about my experience with the HPA system in my VSR-10
so far I have 2 confirmed kills with the rifle.
first one was a bit funny as I guess it was just pure luck.
Reason being the fact that the fps was to high, as I don’t own a chronograph.
