Make sure each one is cleaned as I forgot to clean one of the holes and my pellets took twice the normal wind in a 1/4 value 3.6mph wind. Also the group size doubled in size from cherry to apple.

Gerard it is also important not to use the polishing scrub as the holes become so smooth that the noise made by the gun is not a crack but a whistle, and a whistling, whining Steyr is painful sound on the ears.

Kind regards,

Thanks for the cleaning procedure that will save me a lot of time.. With regard to the acoustics of the gun I am looking for a warbling sound that Michael Walker had on his Steyr at the Worlds in Ireland, do you have any idea how to replicate this ? it was a very accurate gun and Steyr were going to look into the harmonics and sound track of this , but nothing more was heard about it.
