Important Announcement!

Hi Guys and Merry Xmas.
The forums theme was changed this morning to the Xmas theme, but as normal, I doubt it is showing up.
So a quick fix for this is to scroll to the bottom of the page and look for the Change Theme button, located on the bottom left.
Click that and you will be presented with 2 options, simply select the Xmas theme, if that fails, select the 2.3 sense theme and then reselect the Xmas theme.

Could anybody tell us the best pellets to use with a Steyr LG110. I'm told 4.53 probably best but aren't these a bit large?

Also, is there a make of silencer (with adapter) that can remain in place and still let you take the cylinder off?


Thanks for any advice

Mozzies / JSB Exact Express in 4.52 went well in my Steyrs but then so do AA Field 4.52. JSB Exacts 4.51 ,4.52 and 4.53.
Try some and see. It is down to the barrel.

If its the new (2011 long barrel) Steyr ive found 4.52 JSB Exact to be the best in mine. Apparently the barrel was designed from the outset to use JSB pellets. The choke is very small on both mine and a friends gun and needs a fair ammount of running in (2-3000 pellets). Ive tried all the usual suspects including Mossies & JSB express and found JSB exacts group best. My barrel does not like the new black tin AA at all (shotgun groups)

Same with mine. 4.52 JSB Exact will do the best job in the long (55cm) barrel.

Ive hopefully beg.gif cured it now Hols, since ive sleeved the barrel the POI shifts have gone. Ive a few problems with velocity inconstancy's which im hoping are down to the hammer spring bedding in. Im using the black transfer port which im lead to believe gives more consistency. Im a LOT happier than i was a few months ago so time behind the trigger will tell. thumb.gif
