Default Chrony

So, I've put about 1000 pellets through my HW100 and (with some help from the MAD team) the scope is zeroed in, and all is looking good.
Then someone suggested I put a few shots over a chrony. My question is, what results should I be looking for / what would be a result to worry about / is it worth the bother?

All the gear, & some idea.

Just to make sure its not over 12ft/lbs I guess.
If its under and its shooting accurately for you then I cant imagine there is anything to worry about.

with a few shots over the chrono ,Ideally 780 fps with 8.4's is a nice place to be,you may want to do a full shot string to check consistency but this is the sort of thing you would do if you noticed you were suffering with accuracy issues.
The nail that sticks out gets hammered down.

777 is ideal but 775-780 is what you're looking for.

With 8.4's I personally wouldn't like to be over 785, some do run close to the limit though, for me there is no gain as my rifle performs better at between 775 & 785 fps.
In life you should not persue goals that are easily achieved, develop an instinct for what can be only just achieved through your greatest efforts.
