On my steyr i found the adjusting of the stripper cone made a difference to the grouping. i wonder if that is because of the stripper functioning better or because even if its minute the change in the distance of what is a very small weight on the end of the barrel would have an effect on the harmonics, to be honest the rifle was very acurate anyway but with fine adjustment the groups are tighter.
was also thinking ive heard a few fellow steyr owners down here say they had tried and then decided to remove what ever was on the barrel be it stripper or mfc as the groups got worse with them on so does putting something on effect the harmonics and that has a greater effect on accuracy.
definatley an area of interest and would be happy to do some experiments with barrel weights if anyone has any to see the effect it has with and with out the stripper.
