    I could see the pellets spiral as they went by the bird.  As I see it there is a better pellet match for your gun than that.  Thanks for the video. Brian Smith

Thanks Brian and yes the JSB 18gr are surely the better option

    JSB 15.9s get this

    from this

    for me. This is a full shot string at 50 yards from the Wolverine .22. Conditions were perfect for a group. In this gun (regulated) I prefer the 15.9 pellet. It too does not do well with polymags or metalmags.

    Altaros reg after bottle. Reg is set to 155 BAR. From 230 to 150 the shot pressure stays right there.

    Fill pressure is on the opposite side at:

    I did add a small spacer behind the hammer spring. I then backed off the hammer length till I saw an 80 shot string that was stable enough. My Chrony really bites but it is at 920+/- with the 15.9s.

    I also drilled 3 very small vent holes in the OE shroud just in front of the end of the threads where the shroud mounts to the action. They are on the bottom line n a straight line so they are not visible. The gun in s as quiet as dropping a pellet in dry leaves.

    JSB 18.1s are also very accurate from this rifle, but the trajectory is a little better with the 15.9s. I am still using holdover without dope for 110 yards at 20X while sighted in at a 40 yard zero. Most of my shooting on game is 20-50 yards so this is spot on for my styles of shooting.

    I love your videos BTW.

    The foam is me being redneck and using rubber foam pipe insulation to cover the regulator. It does detract from the visual appeal of an otherwise beautiful rifle…
