After a couple of recent threads I decided to revisit the weighing of pellets.
Currently I am using JSB Exact Express 0.51 grams (7.9 grains..?? my scales say 7.8 grains)
Batch # 36004910 4.52mm
So.... after some hours of weighing two tins of 500 (1000 pellets)
I ended up with three weight variations
- 0.50 grams - 131 pellets - 13.1%
- 0.51 grams - 750 pellets - 75 %
- 0.52 grams - 119 pellets - 11.9%
I then went to the range and used these weighed pellets at
- 30 yards - my zero
- 55 yards
At either distance I had no discernible POI shift with any of the three weights.
With this batch I don't need to weigh them, use them straight from the tin.
When I get a new batch I will probably sample two tins,
to see if there is any large weight variation.
