    Default FXA Impact Spiralling issue...

    After spending some time and a lot of pellets with my Impact, I noticed that although the rifle was accurate the pellets were spiralling....after some testing with a push rod i found the following on a lot of the pellets...





    I stripped the barrel...removed the brass thimble and re-machined the barrel...gave it a polish...loosened the choke a fraction and all is good...the barrel was one holing at 25m which they test at....not so much at 50m...

    shooting a lot better now...
