    I’m still waiting for my 4500 psi CF cylinder and have been shooting the Wolverine using fills from a nitrogen cylinder at work which gives a maximum fill pressure of 150 bar. Accuracy is far from perfect with regular flyers. Is this the result of the low fill pressure or some other issue? SWP for my gun is 240 bar. How low can I go and still see optimal performance from the Wolverine?

    Hard to say. 150 bar shouldn’t be a problem. 120 is getting pretty low. When you fill it to 150 are the first dozen shots or so more accurate than the last few? You’ll know for sure when you get your CF tank and can get full pressure in the gun. I’m not a Wolverine owner though. Others may want to chime in.

    Yes you will see loose groups at 150 and under.  I stopped shooting and refilled my Wolverine between 180 and 170.

    I’m not a wolverine owner either so take this with a grain of salt but when I see any of my pcp’s get down to about 150 bar or lower I stop shooting and refill. That is a mental cutoff for me as to when the gun starts to lose pressure and my POI drops. 

    Is your POI dropping or are you just getting random fliers, even in the first few shots?

    Yes, random flyers and POI does not drop in any consistent way. Shooting at 20 yards some shots are maybe off 2-3″ both above and below aim point.

    I should add that I just received this rifle (my first PCP) and the box sustained some shipping damage. I am trying to determine if the poor groupings are due to the low fill pressure I’m using or if the rifle was damaged in some way. I guess I will need to wait until I can properly charge the system to 240 bar to fully test it.
