It is a 12fv so the barrel is pretty heavy (the biggest diameter barrel I have ever seen)I haven't tried it fouled to see how it groups cold but will next time It seems to get worse the dirtier it gets though so I was thinking it just needs more breakin but was looking for more experienced opinions than mine :o

Get Sweets Copper cleaner and read the instructions close. Give it a good copper fowling cleaning. Sweets is the strongest I have found, it will clean the tube like new. Just another thing to try.

Well,I shot ti with a dirty bore and the forst two groups where tight so I think it is extremely heat sensitive The other problem might be that I can't tighen the rear action screw down because when I do it puts pressure on the trigger spring and the safety doesn't work I think that even though the barrel floats that when it gets warm it must be touching somewhere .New bells carlson gold medalist on the way and a good bedding job
