I kinda like my Blue Streak stock.
    I just remember it needed way less pumps than the Benjamin's at the time and had those 20 Cal pellets, not the hourglass ones of the Crossman and Benjamin. Came in a yellow box.
    We mounted a scope to ours, dialed it in. Thing was super accurate

The H&N hit in a completely different spot (not unexpected) and grouped slightly better at 13 yards.

    The wife loaded one clip backwards so we had fliers for a few rounds until we figured it out. We played around shooting and had a 1 pellet shoot off to see who would make dinner, we ended up doing 10 pellets, but in the end she won. I want to try a few different brands of pellets before I sight it in finally for whatever shoots best.

    The wife loves it, she shoots while I load the clips. The action does requires some muscle to break, no problem for me, harder for her. We ended up tearing up the paper for 90 minutes tonight, and had fun which was the ultimate goal. The neighbor never heard it from a few hundred yards away, but he did comment that it looked like an assault rifle from a distance. I intend to try squirrel hunting with it this fall when I get the right pellets, currently a quarter covers a group of 10, but I want a little bit more accuracy out to 25 yards or so.
    Nice range report, good looking rifle. What did you make for dinner?

    The FWB 300S (built 1971 through 1996) came in a variety of differ models using the recoilless action, which by the way, was designed by the same Bavarian who also engineered the 1938 Nazi hand-held machine gun.
