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.
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.
So time to go over the story of my VSR-10 G-Spec.
So it all started when I got an e-mail from redwolf airsoft.
I had totally forgotten that I set up my email for there “back in stock” alert.
And I did this, what 5 years before I got the mail. Continue reading
