It took about the same to do my GC2 in 1988 and it ran one hole groups at 50yds for the 5 years I had it and I never cleaned out the barrel in that time just ran lubed pellets all the time.
Just in case you think I was a nobody my real name is .
It doesn't take more than 2 pellets to be on song after a clean to do a tight group. If she's clean, then it's normally 1 pellet and she's spot on. Until she goes off on one.

Pellet lube is the next thing to try as another shooter with the same rifle and the same issues has had good results.

However the Steyr problem seems unique to it. It's the only rifle I've ever shot which needs barrel attention. The Walther didn't really ever need anything, and nor has any other i've had. Not sure about AA EV2 & FTP as i've never owned one, and the s200 i had was in the days when I was just learning to shoot... that said I'd love it's barrel because that seemed tight without hassle.
