Duck Efficiency

I took the Duck out this weekend for it's first real game with me.

At the Chrony I got 287, 287, 287. NICE! Helps that I was shooting .692 All Star (Yay).

Anyway, I got out to the field and I was lucky to get two full tubes off a 12gr. Any help with the efficiency? I'm guessing a harder Main spring to decrease the Dwell, then turn down the velocity. Thoughts?

I know the redux and slammer baby I have get about 33 - 37 shots (in game) before dropping off to not usable speeds (<230fps).

Well, I just pulled it and it had a red Valve spring (Heaviest) and a weaker Main Spring. I swapped out the Main Spring for a Madman Red and the Red Valve for a lighter one. Now I need to find my velocity tool, modify it to work on this older bolt and then re-chrono it.

Chrono battery was solid if that's what you mean. It was reading accurately all day.

I know I lol'd at it.

I know a lot of Carters go out with heavy valve springs and fairly light mainsprings (which is part of the reason for their amazing pump stroke and why some will latch when pumping w/o air), but you've just gotta find the spring combination your Duck likes.

Duck... lucky bastage...

Yeah, I think Carter set it up that way when it was with him this past spring. I prefer better efficiency than an easy pump stroke. I'll check it the way I have it now and may go back to the original spring combo.

That's very tempting, but it a little out of my price range right now. However, I will keep you in mind for sure. I could certainly do with his expertise.
