I am getting it back on saturday, I am going to give it another try after sitting with the rod and blue paste for a little while longer.

Does anyone know what the twist rate of the cz is?

I "borrowed" James cz barrel for my steyr as it's original barley twist one wasn't grouping at all. Now the barley twist is back "on" so James is having the cz back. What I've found is there's VERY little to choose between the two? The cz is less "fussy" than the barley but prefers a 4.51 pellet. Both barrels will do sub 20p size groups @ 54yrds but the barley can do sub 5p groups when it's just been cleaned & fed with a specific die of jsb. Barley twist starts to go off after between 50-100 shots & needs cleaning throwing them high & left usually. The cz can do upto 250 shots before it starts doing noticeable (by me) "flyers ". I never got the cz to work with a stripper on but probably didn't give it enough experimentation or adjustment of the cones?
