    Any reason you need to stick to 18FE? this is the perfect energy for the standard .177 pellet, but the .177 HP with the 60cm poly barrel is unbelievably versatile, you can shoot the 10.3g heavy, 13.4g heavy and the 16.2g Beast on the repsective power levels with amazing accuraccy!

    I haven't seen that version for sale where I'm located. There are .22cal versions available in the HP.

    You can order a .177 HP, which has the same length barrel as the .22 HP, 60cm, VS 45cm on the standard or 18FPE energy you were asking about, the barrel on the HP also being a poly VS standard rifling on the 18FPE gun.

    The HP curve gives you 30FPE, you can check out my thread a few months back, almost 400 shots on the low power curve.

    Without doubt as above the ATACR 7-35 FFP is the best OVERALL optic NF make, the downside with Leupold IMO is the eye relief is very critical, not so with NF.

    Did you look at ZERO COMPROMISE yet? WOW!

    I got all three diameters in the 5 weights from H&N on Friday, will be testing them with Laity shortly, the 41g .25 is of particular interest of course.

    It's an annoying question for me! I have 7 NF scopes currently, after siginificant testing of all of them in a line I can see (and so can others) that the NX8 4-32 has a better image than 2 of of my ATACRS, 7-35 SFP & 5-25 SFP & at least equals my 7-35 FFP.

    But still all of them aren't as good optically as my 2 15-55 comp NF, this I MUST stress is just image quality, not tracking or build or anything else included in the comparrison.

    I am waiting for the 56 objective NX8 to be released so I can try it against the others, the 20x NX8 however IMO is a terrible image, certainly the one I have anyways.

    My friend you are unlilkely to find anyone who even knows what "anti tamper" is in a free Country like the USA!

    If you have an FAC in the UK best talk to AIRFECTIVE.

    Must be the only downside to life in the USA, uneccessary regs on SCBA tanks, just got two more 12L (115 CUFT) CARBON direct from ACECARE to the UK inc FEDEX 5 DAY AIR delivered less than 600USD all in.

    In fact some UK retailers sell the 9L CARBON (86CUFT) retail for $400 complete with the valve etc.

    Still its a small price to pay for the gun freedoms you enjoy in the USA!

    Yes I have two, the dot and the ladder rets, fantastic scopes and actually better optically IMO than all 3 ATACRS I have and not only mine as others have looked at them together as well.

    Whats the reg set at? are you saying that on paper the gun is terrible? 30FPS? not that big a deal IMO if the groups are good.

    Do you mean the two O rings on the brass part of the barrel where the TP is?

    Is IWA only company related ??? 😃

    It's trade only yes Soren, you will need an invite from someone in the trade etc.

    Go with a .177 and shoot the 13g JSB MONSTER, an excellent combination at that power level, especially in a Daystate Redwolf with a poly barrel.

    Polygonal barrels work best with heavier pellets pushed tl higher speeds.

     

    Polygonal is smoother on pellets.  It's more like a smooth twist.  The .22 polygonal barrel is amazing accuracy for Redesigns and those thing are pushed fast, but it is because of the pellet, not the barrels.  If you have a 25 poly barrel, it will shoot MKII at 840 great because that is just the speed the pellets shoot best at.  That's my understanding.  

    I presume you mean the smooth twist was designed to be closer to a poly profile? I shoot the 34g MKII at 970-980 from my Redwolf & my Impact and it works really well at those speeds.

    As above a poly profile imparts less deformation to the skirt, therefore BC etc. are less affected and this can make a difference at long distances, for this reason as also said above pellets need to be pushed faster in a poly barrel in order to impart the same rotational effect as standard rifling would do at lower speeds.

    I cant say I have noticed heavier fouling from poly barrels though, except when shooting slugs which is the case when shooting slugs in an barrel type.

    If the best shots at EBR used either they would still beat you or I, regardless of which system we used! semantics is just that, semantics!

    Meant to say above, the .177 HP SAFARI Redwolf is an ART poly barrel rather than the traditional rifling of the 18" LW barrel, I have been experimenting with the poly barrel at much lower speeds with the 10.34g Heavy JSB pellets, so far the testing has shown exceptional results, but Daystate don't reccommend this.

    Going by 100 shot strings and groups and using a 2.1mm trasfer port (17 FPE) on the barrel the results are great, very encouraging, however wind effects the 13g Monster JSB less at 50m.

    Thanks I shoot HFT and 25 meter Benchrest. Plan to shoot some 50 yard Benchrest as well. What’s the difference between high power and low powered Redwolf?

     Thanks 

    For 25m you will usually do better with the standard power RW with the standard rifled 18" LW barrel version of the RW, you must consider the high power curve (100%) is usually the most consistent as far as ES over the shot string goes on a Redwolf.

    The 18" barrel will shoot the 10.34g JSB or Daystate pellets really well, or you can step up to the high power version of the .177 (30 FPE) and shoot the heavies on the low power curve which gets you around 300+ shots. The high power curve only works well with the JSB 16g BEAST, fantastic for the field but outside the power limits for HFT/FT competition.

    Every Daystate Redwolf comes pre-programmed with 3 power curves, hi-med-low, this is 100%-80%-60% (of 100% of course) changing the power is as simple as holding the trigger with the cocking lever open and selecting the power level.

    Ask Bucketboy on here, he is regarded as probably the most knowledgable person on Rapids in the UK and runs a tuning/build service.
