Well... it's something I'm exploring at the moment actually.
I'm lucky in that I'm in a position to test this stuff out. Now I own an indoor range that sells pellets and pellet sample packs.. first of all, I get to test dozens of different batches, second of all, I get to see which batches sell well and I get an insight into a much bigger sample size of shooters and barrels than most people do.
The trend i'm seeing at the moment is that a mega batch seems to be mega in approximately 8 out of 10 barrels and the barrels it doesn't still seem to put in a good performance.
The other trend I'm seeing in the range is that the current crop of JSB Exacts manufactured in 2016 all seem to be pretty good - and I'm seeing a lot of people switching over from AA, Daystate, H&N, Crossman etc.. over to one of the current batches of JSB Exacts because the difference in group size is too noticeable to ignore.
