Hi all! My first topic on the forum. :mrgreen:

I purchased this Browning Leverage 177 since last Xmas and it was dirty when arrived! After some cleaning and 'adjusting' (removing the lever catch button. Never liked it...), I finally got it to shoot groups. The process to find the right pellet for a springer is 'wrist consuming'...
Here are some result pictures. Turns out, my Leverage loves RWS Supermag 9.3 gr and JSB EXPRESS 7.33 gr.
The stock 3-9X scope isn't bad for shooting within 40 yards. I did dial down a lot to shoot that paper squirrel @ 50 yards... :rolleyes:

Thank you, I guess 1k+ times of lever cocking did help me to hold this rifle steady... :D

Very nice mate! Like yourself I am on the quest for the right pellet with my rifle. I’m almost a thousand pellets in and still searching for the right one :p


Great work!

I had a dream. Over there, my rifle can shoot cheap ammo accurately all day long. lol! In reality, I can't shoot sub 1" group @ 25 yards with any Crosman, Dasiy, or Beeman pellets. Until I started to dig through H&N, JSB, and RWS tins.
The best group I got from Crosman pellets two months ago. I turned away and never looked back! Good luck finding your favorite pellet!

Oldspringerspring - that was very impressive shooting at 30 and 50 yards.

I guess my luck maxed out the day I shot the paper squirrel. I remember clearly I pulled one shot but the wind blew the pellet back on target :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
