I got a chance to take out my Hatsan AT-44 S10 Long today, tuned to shoot the 34.2 gr. JSB Heavies at 960 fps (70 FPE).... I spent quite a bit of time dialing in the Air Stripper, and I can now tell you that they certainly do affect the group size, changing it from 3" down to about 1.5" and back again, twice over an adjustment range of 1/2".... The two best positions were about 1 caliber and 1.5 calibers of gap between the cone and the muzzle, with the 1.5 cal. gap being slightly better, and having a bit wider "sweet spot".... but even so, the best groups were obtained only over about a 1/16" range of adjustment.... I ended up adjusting the gap just 0.010" at a time to minimize the group size.... I was using a Hawke SR12, 6-18 x 44 AO, set at 18 X.... I was using my Vanguard rest with the rear cradle removed and replaced with a bag, with the butt against my shoulder.... I shot quite a few targets, this was the highest score, 49/50 - 1X.... I am submitting a different target for an upgrade to Expert, because it had a smaller group but a lower score....

I wasn't 100% sure about the X's, so I inserted a JSB .25 cal pellet in the holes and rescanned it, along with a ruler showing the group size.... You can plainly see that one X is inside, the other is touching the line, so it doesn't count as an X.... The group measures 1.53" C-T-C....

I'm really pleased with the way this rifle is preforming.... It's a great combination of power and accuracy, and I get 1 full 9-shot magazine per fill at 70 FPE with about a 2% ES, from 2800 psi down to 2200.... I can get more shots with a wider ES using a 2900 psi (200 bar) fill and 2100 psi refill, of course.... When shooting 5-shot groups, I fill only to 2700 psi to tighten the ES to about 1% over 5 shots, refiling from about 2350 psi....


Great shooting Bob. You set the bar high on the first target.


That's killing it Bob.....way to go.
