Anyway, mozzies dont drop as much in my guns as Jsb, but then I am shootingg them ar 805 -810 fps so the + 30fps makes a difference over Jsb. Suggest you try setting up at the right fps for each pellet via chrono.

Falcons are great out to 45 yards but utter pants after that in aany amount of wind. I shot them at 840 fps. As such, there is very little drop and to me they would be my Hft choice / set up, but not good enough for ft due to wind factor.
I bought them for the springer to use on the informal HFT shoots at Nelson and chrono'd them through the HW98 but took the HW100 with me as an afterthought, it was simply curiosity to see how well they would work through it, didn't expect groups that small in no wind though, that was a real suprise!

bearing in mind prechrges produce higher power readings with heavier pellets im more concerned at running them too low and that was what conrtibuted to the loose groups in wind, but seeing as other people have had similar problems with them I wont bother adjusting the HW100 to get better results, going to give Mossies a go though!
