...I'm curious about other folks experience with this rifle. (200 Senior)

I have had one for several months now, and am a bit disappointed with the accuracy.
Off the bench, my FWB 500 shoots circles around it.

I also don't understand why this gun is so forward heavy,
it makes it awkward to handle, I think.

Anyhow, wondering if anyone has anything to share on this......?

My son has a 200 junior which is basically the same platform as the senior except with a shorter stock.

It is pretty accurate and very capable of shooting one hole at 10 meters. This rifle has a synthetic stock so it is fairly light but with the barrel weights attached, it becomes front heavy.

Try taking off your barrel weights and see if it still feels heavy.

Are you keeping the cylinder on? Mine's about a lb. and adds lots of weight forward. How many pellets you shooting , before trying for the super one hole? Some guns need some shots to season the barrel before going for the gold. This can make a big difference if changing pellet brands or lots. My Tau doesn't seem to fussy, nor my Slav. ( only minete of pop can at 10 meter), but some of my rimfires for 50/50 are a bit cranky. If you are shooting off the bench try putting front rest in a different place. Checked sight or scope screws. Sorry if you know about all of these things.

Thanks for all the info..
I'm just charging with 12 gram caps.
I'm using iron/peep sights.
