I had an occasional flier from one of my barrels last winter that had always been brilliant, pulling it through didn't sort it, but scrubbing it with a brass brush and then pulling it through again got loads more muck out and it was back to being great again, must have had some debris in the grooves that a pull through could not shift.

if you try this make sure the brush is brass bristled as this is soft and will not scratch the bore and not coated steel, touch the bristles on a grind stone, if it sparks it is not brass!

Coincidently this barrel has always preferred 4.51's too although it is a barley twist not a Protarget.
HFT, for people with only 2 buttucks!

Just a quick update.

Out the the stock and chrono'd. 3fps spread over 10 shots, so all ok there lol.
Turned power down to my preference of 11.2 with 8.4g pellets. It was up at 11.7 originally.

Bloody good clean of the barrel, way more than I've ever done before.

Back in the stock, check everything over and tighten everything down.

New tin of 4.51 AA Fields. 4 shots to zero, then one tiny tiny 5mm hole lovelyness
this is only at 28 yards as it's as far as I have in the farm that's sheltered. But my god it's good

thanks for for everyone's help!!
