Default Springer P.O.I shift over time

It's been I blooming long time since I shot a springer, and they have always been secondhand, so been run in, but in the next few weeks I'm gonna be buying hopefully a new HW97KT synthetic in .177, so will the point of impact change considerably from brand new to shooting off a couple of tins of pellets and will it need rezeroing.

It will probably pick up a few fps as it beds in, but as to re zeroing I doubt it, of course if your not up to date with your springer technique you will probably find a POI shift as you bed in!
