No time to correct before comp, so it was shot as was! However the poi changed as the comp continued,until spot on at finish,which after shoot off 3rd.
I would have thought a clean barrel would allow the pellet to be faster,eg crap out less obstruction through barrel, poi higher.Instead it was the opposite speeding up as barrel leaded up?
Strange,is that the norm,I don't normally clean barrels they don't seem to require it, but as it was a 900 and 'Gary' recommends it!

Don't forget, lead is a lubricant and that is why they speed up as they led in...
