To be honest, I doubt it would be that much difference from 8.4-8.7.

You will see a difference dont get me wrong but an inch dont think so.

I check some of my 8.7s and then try 8.2s and Id say the difference is about 2-3 pellets width at max which at the most is 13-14mm.

best I would say to do for anything is to test pellets weights yourself and not listen to what is said on programs. All guns, barrels, scopes etc are different and thats why I will only do my own testing...
