Just had a quick question about the G3. I have a relatively new, stock G3 and one thing I've noticed with it is that when I go to CHrono it, I get results anywhere from 260-285 (280 is our field limit) without changing the setting at all. Is this normal? This is obviously causing some MAJOR shot drop-off mid-stream which is a bit of a nuisance.
Also, when the gun was brand new, I did not think to lube the HPR since I assumed (probably mistakenly) that the gun would have arrived in a "ready to fire" state. So I took it out a couple times before I lubed the HPR. (I was lubing the bolt after each day though.) Later I broke it down and lubed the HPR with Hater Marmalade but am still seeing the issue.
So what are your thoughts? Is a 25 fps variance normal? Is there something wrong with my HPR? I have heard people have had troubles with their HPR's, but I thought that was only on the older G3's.
Thanks for any insight or advice.
