Thanks for replies,

So far I've only tested different pellets at 25yds but after trying RWS Super Field 4.52mm today this looks the best so far with JSB Exact Express, and Exact 8.44 grain 4.51 being closely behind on accuracy but more expensive and don't seat as easily in the mag they need a litter persuasion with a prod from a finger tip to seat.
I'd like to expend the range if we get any mild sunny still days when I can get out in the field.
Pellets tested so far all .177,
JSB Exact 4.52 & 4.51, Exact Express, RWS Superfield 4.51& 4.52, Falcon Accuracy Plus, Daystate Li.

I can't say I've definitely seen any flyers after the first 200 or so shots it seems to be bedding in a bit though after a fill the first two mags give greater spreads but it settles down once the pressure drops to below 180bar. Temperature seems to cause some spread also which settles down after it cools from room temp to outside ambient 5 - 10degC.

"Drops below 180 bar"

Can I ask what pressure you are filling to? I ask as the SWP of mine is 180 and this is what I fill to. You should only be filling to and no more than the SWP. Overfilling will not give you any more power and won't give you consistent shot patterns.

The SWP is 190 which is what I try to fill to.

Just had my first range time with my new Wolverine .177 to zero the scope. After using its first 40 pellets to get it zeroed I must say I'm more than happy with getting a 10 shot grouping like this over 25m using .177 Exact Premium Diablo ....

Well it's quite some time since I posted this question and I haven't thanked those who replied which is remiss of me. I did eventually send the rifle back to DS in March as I was not happy with it's consistency and it also showed a large power curve. Or what I believed to be a large power curve, seems though "they all do that" being unregulated.
Daystate customer service were excellentand igot the rifle back after 3weeks with new barrel fitted and the hammer rebuilt and it is now like a different gun, much more what I expected. I'm sorry to say that I've now limited my postings to the DOC and the full story is on there but I do occasionally return to this forum. Seems to have a lot of the same crowd as the DOC.
