I tested some new accupells & seemed to get 2 groups so only did the one 5 shot group & dismissed them.

I also had a tin of the AA express from 2013 & they were pretty good, in fact the best groups yet apart from my old trusty 18 S0 00 from early 2013.

I only checked with the workmate as I noticed my scores dropping off & put it down to opening a new tin of pellets or changing stocks, looks like it's not the stock...
I'm going to set up my pro target & do the same testing at some point, but I don't think it's the MPR playing up..

Is nobody else getting any problems ?
Did you pull the barrel through in between testing each different pellet? If not the test is probably not as fair as it should be. I would also say that a flier with each one of the different pellets would be gun related. My Steyr and my TM1000 are both really not that fussy at all, the Steyr likes a really clean barrel though.

I use 4000013 4.52 (0) and they work really well in both of my guns. The 800x on Sunday, who knows.

Best regards.
You can never shoot enough pellets
