    Thought I will introduce myself as I have been loitering a bit. :)

    From South Africa and have a few in the cuboard. Latest addition a LG110 Connect in blue. Love the rifle and have only had it for a few days. Love it so much that it is the 1st time that I feel I dont need more rifles in the cuboard :D

    Luger. I will be honest. The 1st day I sat down with it I had a splitting headache and the rifle just did not feel right. 2nds time I started getting smiles as I was shooting at the text on a coke can at 50m in the wind :D and not missing by far. Love it already. So yes the EV will have to find a new home!

    This is definately the most accurate rifle I have ever had or shot! Will have to find an indoor range to test it. :D

    put it this way. I feel this is the 1st rifle I have had that is capapble of one hole at 50m (ragged hole :) )

    They are ALL (not just the Steyr) capable of a one hole group at 50m, it's just up to the capabilities of the operator.;)

    ok. so here is a 30 shot string from around 190bar with AA fields unsorted and unlubed. The consistancy I was expecting is not really there. The accuracy is though :D I mean if I can compare with my EV the EV puts them all within 5fps spread but is not nearly as comfortable as the Stery! So my question. Anyone know how how I can improve on this? Just for peace of mind sake ;)

    You've only got one ringer, the 776. Put that down to a fat or heavy pellet. If it was the gun then you would likely have had more than one low reading amongst that lot.

    you are probably right. If I take the 776 out then I have a 17fps spread which is not stunning but I understand the steyrs are not renowned for steller shot to shot cinsistancy but rather shot to shot accuracy ;)

    0.1 grn will give a 3fps variation in a good barrel. Pellets unsorted from the tin can give a 8.1 - 8.7grn sometimes worse with a bad batch. Thats a 0.6grn difference which will give a 18fps variation;) A good Steyr with weighed pellets will give 5fps.
