    I think the improvements are starting to show

    Nice shooting. Confess I have not tried JSB's in any of my Gamo's yet. Will give it a try later and see if I get the same improvement.
    Thanks for the feedback.

    Your post says H&N's, but the target reads Jsb's?????

    No level of skill and equipment will ever bring an inferior pellet's grouping up to match grade pellet standards.

    That said I use loads of the cheapest pellets I can find in my B4 to plink with and when my arm gets sore from it I take it slower with H&N's and the difference in that cheap ass rifle is immediate and profound.

    The next day with no wind I am going start using JSB's in my CFX. The H&N's are good, but I think Air Arms shot better in my CFX. I did not have enough pellets to confirm that yet. Thus it's JSB's now and after that it's AA's turn.

    Milbro Caledonian's btw. shoot almost the same POI as H&N Field Targets in my B4 on iron sights. About a 3mm difference in POI below H&N. On a windy 17m and iron sights I could consistently hit a resetting target that was 3cmx3cm in size with the B4 and Milbro's. As crude as that B4 is made it's quite alot of fun.

    Accuracy for pellets is not always determined by the windage or elevation of the POI but by the consistancy of the groupings and number o flyers.

    Tomcat, I was just referring to the old thread I started where I originally thought the grouping that I got in that thread was 'good' (there is an attached pic to that thread aswell and that pic was done with H&N...but this pic was done with JSB) ...Hence my quote to that thread

    Every gun likes different pellets. My CFX Royall that I had, shot all over the show with JSB Exacts, but it liked Gamo Pro Magnums. Got very good groupings with the cheap Gamo pellets. That was just my one rifle though ... the others all in favour of JSB Exacts.
