fac Daystate power options from factory

Postby peskypestcontrol » 07 Jul 2014, 01:44

Hi I am looking to buy a LH Daystate regal in either 30 0r 40 flbs . I have a sumatra at the moment and is knocking out about 70flbs when it is wound up but the problem i have is the pellets are all over the place at hi flbs with most pellets so i use it on a setting that is is about 35 ish. my question is which one of the two are the most stable the 30 or the 40 for the Daystate . any feedback would be grateful regards Rob.

In a Regal I believe that a 30fpe version will serve you best. ;)

+1 on the above, 30ftlb is the most versatile :D

Another for the 30.
If I have an opinion it is because I have researched it or due to life experience. It might not be the same as yours but have you done the above?

Congrats Alasdair; .22 FAC Air at around 30-35fpe is a joy to use for a range of UK pest control applications, one of my air rifles allows power adjustment up to 48fpe but I find this power unnecessary. I use rimfire a lot, mainly with Eley HP subs at 40grain/1080/100fpe. I have a little centrefire rifle at 210fpe which is very handy and from there on upwards through the bullet on my Avatar. I'm a believer in using enough gun for the purpose in hand but I don't personally have a desire for the .303 Wolverine. ;)
Hope all goes well with your plans.

I have Sumatra .22 kiciking about 60ftlb, getting very good POI and within 1/2-inch group at 35-mtr range. Do you use Eunjin pellet? Pointed eunjin, not dome.

Never herd of a Eunjin pellet but I never use pointed pellets, always domed.
I wouldnt personally be happy with that grouping your getting, at 35 meter am getting a ragged hole.
1/2 inch group I would expect at 50/60meters.
I would turn your power down as it sounds like the pellet is unstable.
Most sub 12ftlb rifles matched with the correct pellet can do 1/2inch or less as 35meters.

The Eunjin pellet is made for high power rifles 50ftlb+ is probably stable that grouping is par for the course with a Sumatra, they are cheap rifles more suited to the American market, all power and no accuracy :P I put one over a chrono recently and at 60ftlb it did 5 shots with a spread of 3 ftlb!!! After 5 shots each shot thereafter drops by around 2ftlb!!

Makes you appreciate a Daystate :D
