Default No wind pellets?

Interesting "testing" day today. little or no wind at Tondu so took time to run through settings for Rs in the Priest again.
sure enough, some of the dialings set up in the wind last week were out and by enouigh at the closer ranges to cause the low misses on 15ml kills.

so, re-did the dialings again, but this time in little or no wind and after sizing down to 4.50. which seemd to make the Rs very accurate at all ranges.
Harder to judge / shoot than Express when the wind blows but i like a challenge, thats why i shoot Express!

I spent most of the day helping a new shooter set up his Hammereli with Dai 14 exacts. When he left i borrowed a few and suspision as to why most of the peeps that do better than myself use 8.4g pellets of some sort was confirmed. they are very accurate.
but I dont want it getting too boaring so wont switch (yet) to 8.4 even if they do seem a better pellet??

so, an order to intershoot may be on the cards for a new Gimp coat and some Rs pellets. and a new glove!

May if I get enough time this week try a spot of pellet lube on them. Never been convinced that lube improved accuracy before but suppose its maybe worth a try
Going to try RS/ priest sunday in the showdown, unless its windy and then i may switch back to express Rev
