That is basically an early version of a Wolverine and the same load data would apply. They both have a 22" barrel and IMO i would NOT expect good results with 150gr of pellets in a short barrel.

I have a MK-85 and I use 100- 110 grains of T7-3f in it... I think you might find the max load of T7 is 120 grains and it would be rated for 150 grains of real BP or the Pyro's...
