The biggest issue with longer range accuracy in airguns is that air rifle pellets have ballistic coefficients in the range of .01 to .025, meaning they lose velocity very fast and also experience a lot of drift in a crosswind. Even a gentle you barely feel it five mph crosswind can push a pellet over a couple of inches at 50 yards.
