Might let Barry have another look at the Barley twist and see what he says. Pity really as the rifle was very smooth to shoot with the barley twist/stripper combo. The clean 55cm barrel (no stripper) is accurate but has a tiny bit of flip.

Chris why don't you send it off to steyr for them to test it.
They did this with mine last year and confirmed that there was a fault with it.I
got a new hand selected barrel in return free of charge.
Harry preston told me that they put it on a 10mtr demonstrator as despite it not grouping out to 50mtr, it would strangely 10mtr. Just a thought mate.
Let your shooting do the talking.
It's not the aim and release that decided the shot, it's the preparations.
