I weigh pellets for peace of mind for comps. Express ar consistent enough out of the tin, but about 10% come in at 7.4 0r 8.2gr. Groups on paper are definatley much worse if I shoot these mixed rejects off at 40 yd. Proves they are cutting down accuracy but the group still smalll enough to take down a 40mm tin target kill. Would hate to split a 55 yarder with a duff one as I need all the hits I can.

Shooting benchrest at 20yd, the only way to shoot a 5 shot group that an unfired pellet wont drop through is to weight batch and discard bent pellets.
Make every shot count
