JSB have been quoted as saying JSB rs were made for short range which is why we bought them..Falcon Accuracy had rave reviews until shooters tried outside in wind.We found if you used JSB rs in hw barrel they were superb , but CZ barrel needed Falcon Accuracy plus tried both with other batches .However had some FX pellets from JSB stable could shoot as if they were Exacts 2clicks to re zero.Early FX pellets no good in wind since been improved. Some say Cometa Exacts very good but only seen on E Bay

I think I can add to this slightly.
When I bought a fairly large amount of a certain AA die 9 that I had found grouped very well in both of my MPR's, it was only about a month before I had the chance to buy the Steyr I now use. I suddenly realised that I had a large amount of cash sitting in pellets that actually might not group or shoot well in the Steyr, but guess what? It loved them.
Maybe a good batch will not suit every barrel, but it should suit most if that is anything to go by.
There will be differences though due to choke types and twist rates and bore diameters I would think.
