How far out should the velocity bolt be?

it should be chrono'ed at the field limit, whatever that may be. It is usually 285-300 FPS

There is no set distance for the velocity screw to be turned as this is different from gun to gun. As Hossy said, take it to the field and chrono it at something under 300 fps. That's the ONLY safe way to tell...
When we used to play in the woods we would set our velocity so that if you knocked bark off a tree you were too hot. Not the smartest thing I ever did, but neither was taking the bullets off of .22's, replacing them with wax and hunting each other. Yep I still revall over the fact that I am still alive...sorry back on topic, :yeahthat:
