I'm interested in a .177 Marauder. I would like to tune it down to 12 ft/lbs or less. Accuracy, stealth and shot count are my main interests.

Would like to hear from those of you who might have tried this. What settings/hardware did you change? What results did you get like pellet preference, FPS, shot count, pressure range.

Also did you try anything that did not work so well...

You can throttle down to where pellet won't leave barrel.
IMO on a basically stock rifle HANDS DOWN the 0ring Bstaley tune will give you outstanding results.
Very likely able to get 60 or so at 20# power and over a 100 at 12#

Run both my m-rod regulated so my results are skewed .....

get 11.5 fpe and shot 88 shots into the same 1/2 inch hole at 30 yards. it was ridiculously quiet and consistent. the only thing to watch at the time was wind...shooting 55 yards at 11.5 fpe is tricky.
