I have a question. Today we ran some tests be it small tests but tests none the less. I have spent some time weighing pellets. Sorted the exacts into less than 8.3 gr, 8.3-8.39gr, 8.4-8.44gr, 8.45-8.55g, 8.56g+
I went about shooting some groupings to see hiw my setup is doing using the 8.4-8.44 gr pellets. getting less than fav groupings @ 40m on a stoep I shot the less than 8.3 and the more than 8.6 pellets at teh same distance. the 8.3's grouped better and the 8.6 worse. the only thing that bug's me is that they did not one hole but the poi did not change as I suspected. So my question is. Is time spent weighing a waste? will it not make more sense to pick the perfectly formed pellets from the tin and working with them, as they certainly seem to group better. I mean. on 40m the lightest pellet and the heaviest pellets vent through the same hole on a steyr. also, it would seem that lighter pellets appear to group better in my s400. anyone else confirm this on their's?
so to get to the bottom of this.. it seems that even though both have an effect it would seem that damaged pellets have a bigget effect on grouping downrange than pellet weight. The damaged pellet thing I have hear makes a diffs and then after that was told that it does not. but today's tests seems to confirm that damaged skirts havea bigger effect than weighing pellets.
btw, what grain is AA field? arent they a little less than exacts? who has a 4.52 tin I can buy over to test?
