.. if you do cut the choke off, please let us know how they do. Of course, I can see cutting the choke off to get the best out of heavy slugs but not to shoot something about the same weight as an available pellet...unless they really do get accurate...

I've yet to see a report on the Rangemasters fired from an unchoked barrel.

I shot them out of my condor with good results but not any better than other heavy pellets that costs a lot less. My barrel is a lot hear Walter chocked barrel. They work well especially long range.

But just would not shoot solid bullets well.

Once I bobbed the choke off, not only did they shoot the solid bullets great, the accuracy with the Kings improved also.

But the thing is Nasser, I cut those chokes off a couple 500 dollar rifles, not a 2K+ Daystate.

I don't want to cut the choke off the air ranger & regret it, might try it on my condor 1st.
But since Daystate the selfs are saying that, I really want to try them on the Ranger.

Why don't you order a box of these & give them a try in ur unchocked Condor?

I'll keep u guys updated.

choke because you have a lot of pellets that may shoot better through an un-choked barrel? Does your AR shoot OK with other pellets through your choked barrel?

All my .25 rifles shoots great with these too & I would love to have a rifle that shoots heavier pellets for more power & longer range.

I got loads of barracuda 31grains that are just useless for me since they don't shoot too good with any of my rifles, they only shoot okay.

I also have an Edgun modded with a ST barrel in .25' so I will first try shooting these @ 190 yards in all my .25 rifles & than see what I will decide to do.

So how much do I need to cut of the barrel to remove the choke ? 2" maybe?!

with a rod. Mark the rod at the point the pellet hits the choke then pull the rod out and measure.
