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

don't dismiss any pellets too soon chum.
ive been testing too and it takes time for the barrel to 'lead in' or get used to different brands , types or even different batches of pellets ,

the first few shots will be all over the place then you'll see the groups tighten up.
might be better to pull through between changes to give a clean barrel as a starting point .

uk neil offered a thread about this over on bbs, if I remember, he suggested ignore the first 20 shots, my walther barrel was deffo irratic for the first 6 or 7

good luck testing
try to keep notes ... its a drag but saves getting confused
Thanks, I do take notes, but I will take on board what you & James have said about cleaning the barrel between different pellets for the next time.

In life you should not persue goals that are easily achieved, develop an instinct for what can be only just achieved through your greatest efforts.
