There are many factors that can affect the accuracy of rifles. A dirty barrel is certainly one of the common causes. The barrel on my gun is made by Lothar Walther. LW makes barrels for many rifles, as well as airgun companies, including FX and Air Arms. My gun's barrel really bites into the pellet. This may be part of the reason the gun has such good accuracy, but this also creates a side effect of a fouling of the barrel. It only takes a patch or two to restore accuracy. In most cases, I do not use any solvent - I just use dry patches. If that doesn't remedy the problem, I'll use a few drops of Ultrabore or Googone to remove stubborn lead. If I only use dry patches, I do not need to perform the ritualistic 30-50 shots to "re-lead" barrel and restore the original point of impact.

It goes without saying that every gun/barrel is different. Mine likes a patch fairly often. Other guys can go thousands of pellets between cleanings. This is why I avoided stating how often one should clean. That said, enjoy. :)

The Camera Mount I used to record through the scope can be found here:

The slow-motion camera I use to film the shots through the scope is the Casio EX-FC150. That camera is no longer made, but you can buy its successor (which is actually a better camera than the one I use) here:

The Exact same Hawke Scope that I use in this video (Sidewinder TAC 30 6.5-20x) can be found here:
