I'd also get a masada nub or arm, or a panthera nub. Someone a while back proved they were more accurate

I don't have proof either, but can confirm that my shots are definitely much more accurate with a Masada nub. On a good day I can hit 8/10 shots on a torso sized target at 70m, whereas before it was roughly 3-4/10. I just need to work on eliminating other non-hopup variables so that "a good day" translates to "whenever the rifle sees action"

For the 2021 buckings I recommend 70°-85°.

For the nub, I suggest that you make the one in my signature as it's as good as the Masada arm but retains the use of the return spring in an AA chamber, and costs about $5 to make 100 of them.

Am i gonna see a difference between 70° - 85°? Or it's more about durability?

You need to figure out which bb weight you will be using
The degrees is based on speed, and not joule rating

A .45 at 2.8 Joules is ~110m/s which is 60 degrees
A .20 at 2.8 Joules is ~165m/s which is 80+ degrees

If you're going sniper, you likely should be using .45...therefore a 60 degree

I really haven't seen a performance difference between 60° and 80° regular buckings when it came to the older Maple Leaf ones, but 50° sucked the most even at low power.
I like 70°, but I'm gonna buy an 85° since I tried one and liked it exactly as much, but it won't wear out as fast.
70° 2021 will be difficult to wear out, but 85-° should be immortal.

Thank you for the explanation! I am going to use .45 The idea is make it to 3.1 - 3.2 joules (Limit 3.3j in Argentina)
2.8 joules was before with stock hop up chamber + home made r-hop. I think it will go up a bit. Going to try 70° first and see how it performs.

You can also look for the Tridos tdc. That is better than both nubs.
