    VP90 Spray and a cloth wipe down and then a dry cloth to get rid of the oil so dust dont stick

    Pull through patch with a very small dab of vp90 prob every 18 mth to 2 years or when it stops grouping as tight but every barrel will be different some like to run dirty with certain pellets some like to run clean with others.

    Theres no definite answer to that your on the right lines.. I use jsb and aa 452's 8.44 the aa seem consistant with different batch numbers... JSB different batches seem to vary a bit in different rifles its a case of trying a few and finding what works with your gear.. If you clean the barrel you will prob need to put a good 100 shots through it before its at its most accurate then shoot some groups with your pellets if they all land in the same place then all is good.

    I clean my barrels every time I shoot it, if I have not lost my napier pull through kit that is!

    But generally both my ev2 barrels like to be clean so I don't leave them go past 150 pellets.

    You will have to find the best Die & batch for your barrel. Group at 45 and 55 yards to see which pellets group tightest.
    Got about 12 different dies of jsb, pop to tondu one Saturday if you want to try /test some?



    I don't clean the out side of my ev2, I just paint it black!:D

    I used to clean mine pretty much every time I used it so every 75ish shots. I'm using a different pellet now and not cleaned it for about 4 months. I don't think it's the pellet so much,I think alot of it is the barrel!

    I'd give it a clean anyway.

    Fire a dozen shots or so to let the barrel lead up a little, then try some more groups.

    If they are the same, try some different pellets.
