I use Diabolo field in my gun and if I can't get pellet on pellet I clean the barrel with a pull through made with shock leader, its worth doing when oiling/greasing the gun anyway.

My s410 was pretty equal with AA, QYS and JSB heavies, stuck with the JSB as they take down the squirrels well and less wind affected.

@suzzy buzzer...
Thanks for taking the time to write a comprehensive reply, it was interesting.
I was raised in a country village and shooting was part of life but without all the technicalities, bull dog pellets were sold in the local post office and that was pretty much it.
When I was 16/17 I got a old 12G double barrel hammer gun from my uncle, that progressed to various others shotguns, 22 rimfire and 243 rifles.
So I can relate to a lot of what you said and I've learned a bit too, I didn't realise just how on the edge target shooting was.

Thanks again Al

Hi Guys
Im looking for advice on buying an airifle, the last one i owned was a Weihrauch HW80 and that was about 30 yrs plus ago.
I suffer from Tennis elbow in both arms so it will need to be fairly light so was thinking of buying a pcp probably on the used market budget of about £500 to £600ish.
I do recall my HW80 being very heavy after being out for a day with it.
Any reccomendations or advice would be much appreciated
Cheers
Garry
I have been looking around and only junior rifles would seem to fit the bill,
Then I remembered The Rat Catcher by Crosman 2205B .22 There are several Videos
on You Tube. *Sorry not a full power rifle*

If you want to shoot rats, or just have fun plinking in the garden the HW30s In .22 with open sights (quick target acquisition) or simple low mag scope is all you need. Simple mechanics, great trigger, easy to cock.
They are ridiculously accurate with Hobby pellets, relatively light and flattish trajectory.

The HW 30 is a very good gun, I did have one along with a nice Diana, that my boys used

Thanks for all the advice guys
I have just put a deposit down on a used Air Arms S510 Carbine Superlite in Hunter Green.
It comes with scope, 2x10 shot magazines a bipod and a hard case.
The superlite was my choice as i suffer from Tennis Elbow.
Cheers

You'll also appreciate the side lever action over the bolt! What calibre is it?

Its a .22 mate
Thats all i ever owned many years ago.
i also think i would have bought it if it was .177 also, so i dont mind really.
I just need for travel restrictions to be eased now so i can go pick it up.
Cheers
