I bought a FX Royale 500 the other day in .25. She is a great shooting gun with plenty of shots between fills. Accurate too, killed a zombie Natty' Light can at 125 yds with it. Here are some typical 50 yard groups, and a pic of it (second from bottom) with a variety of other ones to show size differences. The AR is a 24" to show how it is sized compared to a powder burner for those that have not seen one in person Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

Nice looking rifle. I really like the way the .25 pellets group at long ranges. I really notice the difference on windy days. With that big ol bottle that should make a real good hunting rifle.

Hey thanks for the compliments guys! I'm very happy with the rifle so far, it is shooting better than I could have imagined. As for being front heavy, not at all. It is very well balanced. Here is a pic to show it. By looking at pics it is very deceptive because it is so long. It points very well and is my most comfortable rifle. Posted Image

i cant hate that point of balance, i guess the only thing bad about it is the length at least for me, i like to hike with my guns so length to me is very important and weight too, i dont like to hunt with a bazooka that weights 10 pounds while im hiking for 5 miles. but for sitting down target shooting im in.

Great groups.

You never hit the dime. Nice rifle.
You can hop but you can't hide. Yahi Bowmen. Its not how far you can shoot but how close to the game you get when you shoot. Sights we don't need any sights. Why waist time reloading when I can be making arrows.
