As Pete says.... I set my Steyr up at home...Gun warm 785 fps. Went through the chrono at 755 fps. By this time the gun had spent a few hours in a gunbag in the car and I had shot half the course. The alloy frame on the Steyr was BLOODY COLD! Checked the gun since my return...gun warm 782 fps.
There is a lot of alloy on the Steyr to chill and affect the power level.
