My Steyr seems to have gone the other way, when I first had it it could quite happily run 1000-1500 between even moderate cleans however now it seems its a matter of 400-500 shots and it needs a clean of some sort. Im guessing the pellets im using, the same ones as i was 4yrs ago, are no longer quite as clean as they where then. I plan this year to experiment with washing and lubing to see if it will help hold accuracy for longer betwen cleans
