    I was hoping when Daystate released the Wolverine R the .303 would have the power of the previous Wolverine HP .303.

    Looks like Daystate is stating 60ft-lbs for the new rifle…..WOW like down 40lbs.  I know the shot count is up, but I was hoping for power and consistent FPS.  

    Anyone have any experience with this new rifle?  Can the regulator be adjusted to get the power up?

    I thought the same thing when looking at the Rengade HR/HP. The HP model says 18 shots at 80 ft/lbs but nothing on the number of shots from the HR/HP at 80 ft/lbs. Thought that was the whole point of it being regulated was to tout the number of shots at higher power.

    Yes for the Renegade HR/HP they have it all yucked up too.  60shots @ 45ft-lbs for the .303…why bother for the .303 at that performance.

    FX Crown .30 is 40 shots @ 82 ft-lbs…approx..    I would hope Daystate would be matching that at the least or bettering it.  I have a .25 Crown and it's a great rifle!  Just want something different for a .30 cal.

    regulated guns offer you high shotcount and very good consistency, but less power than non regulated…. i have wolverine r hp in 2 cal and came to me at 45fpe, non regulated achieves 60+fpe…. non regulated gives you about 25 shots, regulated gives you 90 very consistent shots…. conclusion, non regulated hp daystates are for hunting purposes…. regulated you can do both hunting or target shooting!!

    How about consistent HP shots.  From shot strings I have seen of non-regulated rifles they are not real flat.  Some what bell shaped.  Shot count is important. Consistent is more important IMHO

    about 20 fps from the highest to the lowest…. and if i only shoot it on that sweet spot (230bas to 150)…. the difference of fps on that string is about 8-10fps

    just bought a wolverine r 303  60ft-lbs  reeding the factory test  the average ft-s is 736 do you think is underpowered?

    Yes, that is why I bought another brand of .30cal.  It is doing 880 fps with 51.5gr projectile making 88.58ft-lbs.  It is like Daystate neutered the Wolverine 303 when they added the regulator, which they really didn't have to do that….I know it was for shot count but gee…going from 100+ft-lbs to 60ft-lbs was a bit to much.

    Daystate bring the power back!! 🙂

    So I have some info about it. Turns out the Wolverine R HP .22 that I received from AOA was originally a regulated .303. When I received my gun I found the .303 paperwork from Daystate including a matching serial # on my rifle that matched the info on the box. Except it had a .22 barrel and probe and a different regulator pressure. 

    I talked to Darren at AOA and was concerned that I had received some Frankenstein Daystate, especially since I had a .303 mag included in the box instead of a .22 mag. He said that Daystate had planned on shipping the regulated .303 to AOA but they refused shipment of the guns when they found out the guns were only producing 60 ft lbs, telling Daystate no one would buy an expensive underpowered .303. So Daystate, instead of scrapping the guns, fitted them with .22 barrels, probes, and returned them as .22 HP models which shoot 45 ft lbs easily. 

    The test paper from Daystate showed a very tight ES and SD using the 50g pellets for roughly 60 ft lbs of energy. No idea about shot count or anything else. Don’t know if AOA even carries the HP .303.

    AOA is right not many want a .30 cal that produces power like a .25 cal.  What's the point…right??  

    I hit Tony B. up about it and got the response he would check with the tech guys at the factory.  

    I would guess they will correct this in the near future.

    I dont know much about regulators, but like the idea.  Cant Daystate sit down with Huma to just enlarge the regulator?  In the end getting still more shots than unregulated, and keeping the power at 100 ft/lbs. in 303 Wolverine.  I assume current regulators in the 303 Wolverine can't be cranked up individually to reach 100 ft/lns??

    Great thread by the way, and well said on all above write ups!

    Probably more about enlarging the size of the plenum size the regulator feeds.  If you do not have a large enough volume of air between the valve and the regulator increasing regulator pressure will not help a lot from what I know.

    i call my local dealer (greece)  who sold the gun to me and discuss about the power (60 ft-lbs). He told me that daystate tuned the gun at this power in terms of an all around  30cal airgun not only for hunting (forbidden in greece) but for target shooting . plinking etc, more shots per fill and better accuracy.From this point of view i agree with daystate.Also the  wolverine r is a new gun and the wolverine 2 will remain in production including the hp model producing 100lb-fts. if someone wants raw power from his gun that is the way to go.. so…i decide to keep the gun and put a scope on it  and test it.. maybe the over all perfomance and build quality of the gun whitch is outstanding give me a big smile..
