    It's OK - same burger, different bun. I have similar here in .22 ;)

    And before the 2 labels posted up, it was silver for .177 and gold for .22, does this mean H&N have changed the dies again ?

    Thanks for quick reply. I was worried it is not the same andwas about to return it. I bought this to try in my brand new WH100S 177 butthis is another long story. Bought above rifle brand new from Essex Air GunCenter. This is my first HW100 I own s410 177 and was happy with it but readingfew posts on this forum convinced me to buy HW100. And what I can say. Gunarrived in a week and looks and handle very good, slightly heavy especiallywith Hawke sidewinder tact. Scope but was fine. Gun arrived with testcertificate showed average power of 11.5 and maximum power of 11.6 with AA 177.However when I have choron it was doing an average of 11.9 with at least threeshots of every magazine reaching 12.1 to 12.3. I have tried air arms, JSBexacts and RWS superfied and got similar results will all of them. I couldn’tbelieve my Chombro so I took the gum to local Gunsmith and test confirm aboveresults but surprisingly gunsmith told me no need to return gun as it is justslightly above limit, he said he will be worried if it will reach 13ft lb. Ihave three sleepless night then I have decided to return gun. I have called AGCand they said this is not possible, as they have tested gun before sending it.But I told them I couldn’t keep gun and they have to sort it out and they saidno problem send it back for retesting.

    I send gun back using parcel force and this will compensateme only for £99 if parcel lost. Gun now arrived safely to AGC and as expected theirown test confirm that it was over powered and they have send it back to HullCartridge to sort it out.
    I am surprise that gun was overpowered out from thebox. I read before that power may creep after hundreds of pellets but this gunwas overpowered with my first pellet
