Default 4.51 or 4.52 0.177 for a new barrel?

As a newbie, does it make sense to use the slightly smaller pellet in a new barrel?

Default testing

you will need to test several batches, even from the same manufacturer. the only way to find out. it may like 4.53, nothing to do with it being new.
i'm not perfect, but I shoot FT, reality is this is pretty much the same thing!
