Just downloading your video right now, second one with telephone book test, and I noticed you are firing H&N Baracudas and Beeman Kodiaks (which is a Baracuda). Personally, I'd rate these pellets as far too heavy for the Striker. I'd recommend maximum of about 16 gr. My recommendation, but your choice..

I have a Webley ValueMax .22, which is the same as the Striker, but with a Webley badge on it. I really like this rifle as it's quite easy to cock and reasonably nice to fire. It has a good muzzle velocity and mine kicks about 17+ ft-lbs at the muzzle which is more than some other 1000fps rated (.177) rifles that are around. I haven't tried for any groups but it seems to shoot where I point it. I use the Crosman Premiers @ 14.3gr (boxed). I've really grown to like the Premiers as they perform in quite a few of my .22's and in some .177's too,, very versatile pellets.

I really do suggest though that you try lighter pellets...

well the striker is doing great with these heavy pellets, i get good groups in in the phone book test they didn't drop form where i aimed them.
