Hw100
« on: December 27, 2016, 04:17:39 PM »
 Hw100 running abit rubbish when I got it,if had been in the house it would be be shooting fine, but if left in the porch where it's outdoor temp it would drop  fps.

 The AT  is slightly different with the grub screw instead of it being on the end of the barrel is now underside and half way down, there's a new hole machined in to the back block for access so it's still conveneient.

 Cleaned all the crud off the rail and surroundings,re lubed it but aren't entirely happy as I used 3 in1, maybe a bit thick,i'm not sure, so i'll get a tin of the same in aerosol form ,which tends to be thinner.
 Not had chance to run a full string off as the lights fading too much for the chroney, but it's in the area of mid 570fps with aa15.9.

I'd suggest that 570fps with AAF's is nigh-on ideal.

Personally I like to set them so they are no higher then 575fps at their peak.

I've just had a nosey on chairgun and 575 with 15.9 pellets is almost on the limit.

   If the power is set a little lower, say at around 11, should I get extra shots ? I'd rather it be 560.

575fps with AAF's is 11.6ftlbs. As long as that is the absolute limit of what the rifle will produce, I feel that is a decent enough safety net, legality wise, seeing as AAF's are the most efficient pellets that I've found to be available. However, that's my choice, and if you would be more comfortable with a lower velocity/bigger gap to the limit then it's your call. But to my mind, the whole 'power to limit' situation is a bit of a gripe anyway.


Yes, the lower the power, the more shots per charge (SPC) you'll get.

I always aliken it to driving a car with a full tank of fuel........if you drive it flat out, you'll get less miles per tankful and empty the tank sooner,  than if you drove it at a lesser pace.

What type of Chrono do you have ? If its an F1 with screens, try putting one of those " stick anywhere  " LED lamps on top of each screen. You know, the little round ones, full of LED,s , cheap to buy. Two of my pals use them , cured the low light problem because they,re DC and don,t upset the sensors. Just a thought. Sewing machine oil works quite well, very thin.

Yeh, the chrono is a f1 type,with the screens. I'll your suggestion Mel,sounds good. Maybe I can pick up some cheap from the pound shop.

 ''Sewing machine oil works quite well, very thin.'' I've just tried some 3in1 spray which I've already sprayed some in the gubbins.

Half way down the fill it's say in the mid 560s, that's with it fresh out of a warm hoiuse,I'm going to leave it a couple of hours to freeze down and take another reading.
