    Default weighing Pellets

    Ok guys
    quite a few guys weigh and sort thier pellets, now we are talking .20. what is the weight groups that are used for jsb (14 grains) and enjins (23 grains). what is the "margin of error" before weight effects poi. do you guys start with the heavier pellets and then move to the lighter batch when the velocities start to drop.

    thanx

    I weighed a tin of H&N(.177) and took them to the BR range. I shot them all away at different distances. I could not find any difference between any of the different weights to mention. I personally don't think it is worth the monotony of weighing pellets, but if it makes you more confident, do it. I feel washing is more beneficial, although also just marginally enough, also not to make too much of a fuss about.

    I allways figured the pellet was designed to be a certain weight with the correct lead/ alloy mix and new dies. Therefore if the pellet is designed to be 7.9gr that should be the weight when everything is in order.

    This should ensure the pellet die is completelly filled and radially ballanced, which is more important than a miniscule difference in total weight.

    These are the findings of a man who can't shoot for sh1t and will soon need glasses.
