I'd been a bit dismissive of the high mounts but I think I should have an experiment. I suppose chairguns allways an option for comparisons at the very least.
Peter, the HW100 .22 barrel is quite unique in that it only has 6 rifling grooves/lands, this can allow soft light pellets that accelerate faster to skip the rifling. They do seem to be best with harder pellets with the H+N FTT often being the best. Jsb 13.4/14.3are always worth a try but some HW100's often the carbines don't like them. The 14.3gn Crossman Premier pellets might be worth a go?
HFT, for people with only 2 buttucks!
