Default Could be bad pellet

It could be a bad pellet now and then,

If the gun is good over the chrono etc, then the reg is fine. I am always happy with a 10 fps variation over a charge through my guns. If its lower then happy days, if its 15 fps its not the end of the world.

I weigh my pellets, I use JSB Exacts myself and weigh them into batches such as 8.2, 8.3, 8.4 etc etc. My rifles seem to run about 4-7 fps over a charge with weighed pellets which I then know is spot on.

I would check the gun with weighed pellets to start with over the chrono, then use the same weighed pellets when shooting on boards and see how much better the groups might be or do they stay the same.

All I do with my pellets is weigh them, I dont clean them or lube them size them or have them blessed etc. I find weighing them is enough for me.

Tell us how you get on when youve done your checks.
