Default What do you consider good accuracy for pellet gun?

I don't come from a gun family, so I don't really know what is considered good accuracy with a pellet gun. I just went out and shot 5 pellets from a Crossman Pumpmaster from Walmart at 30 yards and had one bulls eye and kept everything in a 2 inch group. Then I backed out to 40 yards and shot 4 times and the group expanded to 2.5 inches (Including the original group) and I took one shot at 50 yards and was way off... I hit low on the target way off to the right. (I was having trouble standing still on an angle because of a hill) Is this pretty average?

That looks pretty good. How are you shooting it? Offhand, and by that I mean are you standing and shooting, not leaning on anything? The more you can rest that gun, the better you will be. Try shooting off a table, us backpack or something to rest your gun. Like I said, the more rest and support you can have, the better the accuracy will be. Give that try and see how your groups look.

That is a good idea to try that. I have just been standing and shooting.

Put her on a rest, that group will tighten up.

it depends on the gun. Some of your high powered springers, an inch size group at 20 yards is really good. Ive got a benjamin discovery pcp that shoots .3 inch groups at 20 yards. But yeah, you need to be shooting from a rest and bench to really get an idea how accurate the rifle is.

MANY variables, I won't begin.

Addressing yer experience/ performance is par. Try different pellets and pump combinations.

A good springer, one hole groups at 15 yds easily.

Good luck and seek out an airgun forum to get into the guts of this animal.
