Cheers Si,

 

I did have a hold of that laminate Streamline - again :rolleyes::laugh:

 

It's actually a lot shorter than it looked in your recent post - it's a nice, pointable rifle with a good weight. It's no wonder you're doing so well with yours :yes:

 

I'll stick a post up after Tuesday mate :thumbs:

....... It'll just be another review if I blank :laugh:

Really nice looking gun Jon. I do have a soft spot for the Ultra and wanted to fit a reg, shroud and slightly longer cylinder along with a tune from one of the clever boys out there but it pushed the overall cost up too much and chopped it in for the Wildcat.

 

Seamaster gave me a tin of Daystate pellets which were JSB Heavies and boy did they group well and on the opposite end AA Express did the same.

 

Hope the gun is a winner for you Jon.

Proof of the pudding Jon. How does your new BSA hold up to hunting and stalking on your permission?! :hmm:

 

I had a dreadful worry my new Pro Sport would turn out to be like the TX200 Mk.III .22 rifle I had for over ten years. I could hit any number of card targets with it, with precision single hole groups at all air gun ranges. But, for a reason I never really found out, I couldn't hit a rabbit or pigeon save rats at 25 yards or less with it. Pellets would go zipping as much as 6 inches adrift of their heads and just hit the dirt. Wasn't a particularly hold-sensitive rifle either. :hmm:

 

Thankfully the Pro Sport has banished that experience to bad memory. :gunsmilie:

 

Hope everything is working out for your new aquisition. I must admit, if I had had a similarly bad experience with a BSA Ultra, that would be it, done with and over as far as ever buying another was concerned. :hmm::cray::(

 

Best regards.

Cheers Rez,

 

I think it's more a kin to the Ultramax than my old se.

 

I did have a quick go at standers on a couple of HFT lanes yesterday - I can see why they like these funny butt pads - it gives a nice solid fit :yes:

At the moment, I'm liking it a lot.

 

JSB Heavies didn't seem to do so well in this. After a couple of mags and a rezero, the Bis Mags were spot on.

 

...... I haven't tried the AA Express yet though :hmm:

I'll have to give them a whirl - I know they're well regarded on here and, a longer flatter trajectory is always useful.

I keep looking in on your Prosport thread mate :yes:

 

........ That's some impressive groups from standing shots :good:

 

 

I have a feeling (or high hopes) that this little Ultra will be a good hunting rifle. It comes up to aim nice and, it's stable for long enough for me to work out a decent shot...... I just need to do my bit :whistling:

 

I'll give it a good crack on the rugby pitches on Tuesday night with NV and, possibly a day time wander on Wednesday.
