You will find that when the minimum amount is reamed out to remove the rifling the smooth bore of the barrel is still smaller than the dia of the pellet skirt so pellets straight from the tin will from a very good seal.
I do weigh pellets to eliminate the extreme low and high weights, maybe this just gives me more confidense than anything else but it cant hurt.
HFT, for people with only 2 buttucks!
