The funny bit being that there was seemingly no single reason for it going to pot, not even a reason that could be explained psychologically - if I would have known that I was using 4.52, that might have explained it, but I was not aware of that.

I loike it when tool takes his shirt off, it keeps me amused for hours reading tatoos.
One day i am going to have a tatoo done, of an Ev2

Anyway, 4.51,52,53 = waste of time. Myth. Pellet will be closeer to 4.46 -48 on head.

Its the die number that counts.
I could say go and read my findings in how do you miss, but I dont think your that young.
Today is another pellet testing day at tondu, if the wind is up might launch the new pellet testing lane.
I baught 9 different tins of jsb the other week from intersoot. We have been testing them in different guns to see who's gun works with what. Each of us is heading to different results
Gadget = die 34
Zak - Die 11
Shunter - Die 8
Me ? ? Well Rev likes die 34,but i need another confirmation day
No dark art, papar targets at 40 + 50m, 10 shot groups. Two groups, get up, refresh, start over.
40 m even Gadget can group almost pellet on pellet at times, and that with his hands. 50 m is where it will show whats really working well!

One thing I never noticed with my ev2 is tight and slack fitting pellets. Maybe something different betwen mk 1 and 4 Ev? Maybe i just never took notice?
