Hi and welcome to the Forum Wizz0; what fill pressure are you charging to? I suggest that you fill to 180 BAR and try AA Field Diablo 5.52mm and see how you go.

What is the fill pressure indicated on the gauge of the rifle? As the Wolverine isn't regulated its a little sensitive to fill pressure, even so shot to shot fluctuation should be a lot less than you indicate and the B version is generally more tolerant than the C due to larger bottle capacity.

What Chrono are you using?
Are you testing inside or outside?
For velocity testing under these circumstances I do recommend AA Diablo Field in the .52 head size. The degree of Pellet alloy hardness makes an appreciable difference to muzzle velocity.

As the rifle is new I suggest taking it back to the dealer and asking them to Chrono it with AAF over a number of shots. Let us know how you get on.

hi,

Kaisers although very accurate will record a lower power figure, as Mantonflint has suggested I would try AAF or Daystate Sovereign. The rifles are tested with Sovereigns so best to make sure you have tested properly at the peak of the power curve with those before sending back.

Also a silly thing that may be teaching you to suck eggs is the chrono calibrated and set up with the pellet weight?
