They are a cracking little rifle. I've had mine since new and it's never missed a beat. Completely unmolested and I wouldn't like to tally up the amount of gear I've shot with it :no:
It's very pellet fussy but groups well and is consistent. I'd certainly never part with it.

Nice :thumbs:

This one's the same - it had a sevice at BSA just before I bought it and, they confirmed it's totally factory standard.

I did think about letting John Bowkett have a look at it but, I don't want to feel any different to how it feels right now.

 

If it aint broke  :yes:

I know a lot who use to use defiant pellets in the super ten but H&N took over and now they call the defiants sniper lght

That's the ones :thumbs:

I was surprised by the marks inside the skirt and on the back of the head - they look like they've been flared after moulding.

I've got a digital slide scale but unless your gonna spend a bloody fortune they're  about as accurate as mystic meg  :blink:
and i don't  need any dealer scales in the house!
i hope the weather is good for you tomorrow cos its grim as f up this way and tomorrow aint looking any better!! :censored:
 
tried the hornets again just to see if they had improved with the barrel bedding in but its not to be :cray: cant see anything flying away after a tap with one of them!!


It's supposed to be snowing here again tomorrow :thumbs:
Trouble is, none of it settling - it's just little whispy bits in the air all the time - the sort that keeps hitting you in the eyeballs - I keep walking round like a twitching div :laugh:

...... I'll do some tests in the warehouse before work tomorrow.

It's a pisser that those hornets won't work for you - I imagine they'd bring down an actual armour plated pigeon :laugh:

Have you tried Polymags?

Only 1 pellet left to try , and that's bis mags
Reason why ---------- as you know I'm from Birmingham, and the BSA factory is just down the road from me , any way
I know one of the production managers there , and of all the pellets out there he tells me there barrels like them the most
Worth a try mate

Come on lads. Quit the washing and weighing talk. There's just no need for it. It's anal and completely unnecessary. What you do in private should remain private

I once went home with a bird that could have done with washing and weighing :whistling: :laugh:

..... Never bother with pellets though. Life's to short.

I kind of ruled those out because of their weight.

I'm a .177 man really so, when I use .22, I need all the help I can get - hence the lighter pellets and/or shorter ranges :)

It looks like it mate.

Countryways are less than £8 for .177 but they're out of stock at the moment.

I've only ever tried a couple .....

The .177 shorts were good in my old HW100 to around 45yrds. They opened right up at 50+yrds.

So far, I've also had good results with them in the GSX100 to 35yrds, then I ran out of them.

I've tried the .22 regulars in my TX - it didn't like them at all.
These are too long to cycle in the Super 10 mag.

From my fairly minimal experience, the shorts are looking best so far but, I wouldn't take that as red mate.

It's a shame they don't do sample packs of them.

I might give those Metalmags a go - they look like they might penetrate like the Hornets :o :thumbs:
