Post Magnus Effect & Airgun External Ballistics

Does anyone have any experience of the Magnus Effect in relation to airgun ammunition (pellets).

i.e wind from the right pellet POI high & left
wind from the left pellet POI low & right

I have made many inconclusive experiments,
generally I get a horizontal line of impact points(POI's)

My conclusion is that airgun ammunition (pellets) are not affected by the Magnus Effect, or the effect is very small.
unlike firearm ammunition, which is effected by the Magnus Effect.

Any thoughts on this or experience of this effect.
There is nothing impossible to those who will try!
