There's always been the possibility of a slightly bent skirt or a heavy pellet used to sneak through a chrono.

What's the difference? ... 7.9=@820fps ... 8.44=@800fps. If you are that good a shot that 20fps is going to make you win or lose then you probably don't need to fiddle the chrono.

Most folk tend to find that running them quite lower than the max gives better results anyway.
Express and Mossies are very similar and if asked everyone would think 7.9gr but an 8.44 at 820 is over the limit. If a club permits that they are not going to be insured for FAC firearms.

So the new JSB pellets - if they really are 8.44 in an Express profile could create problems which may make it advisable to implement pellet weighing, etc.

Something for the BFTA to consider?
