    Yes they as well as the 201 and 202 love cast bullets . I have not owed a Sumatra but I am looking at the 25 right now and they are not chocked . And they do have a lead cut in them as well . Reports are they do well with up to at least 52 grain cast bullets . The thing that has me on hold right now is the loading port seal is located in the inside of the lead . Which means that what ever means you use to clean the barrel will pass through it . I clean after every 200 shots which is 1 day of shooting and the barrel needs the cleaning at this time . My thoughts are that lead particles could easily get stuck to the o ring or be abrasive to it . Which means I might have to replace it after every session . I am open to ideas . Even a snake ran through it on the second pass could deposit particles on a soft o ring IMO . Could be wrong have been before . Really like the shot count and power of the rifle . But the placement of that o ring could be a problem for my type of shooting .Marvin

    I thought there might be more energy than the 131 grain bullets were giving . So I bought a 150 grain mold that drops 155 grains with 8 bhn lead . Still left wondering if there is more energy in this rifle .Marvin

    I wanted to see if the rifle would do 275 fpe with the 22 inch barrel . With 160 and 164 grain bullets this time . If you add the total fpe of both bullets and divide by 3 it still held over 275 fpe on 3100 psi . The other plus is I started with a 80cf tank at 3200 psi. tethered and regulated to 2400 psi . Shot 125 RB over 1000 fps. on low power be fore the tank psi hit 2400 psi .Marvin
