    Thank you will do
    I don’t think it’s clipping or damaging pellets as I can group easily at 30meters I just want it more accurate there after

    One cost more to buy
    Oh and the X has an X inside the barrel I believe to change how the pellet spins
    Well I made that up ish but it sounds good I’m sure someone will correct me

    What do you guys/girls think about this 21 shot group at 50meters slight breeze, if you cant count the 21holes its because they missed the paperwork

    Ouch
    Do you have anything to compare it to? I would be (ideally) looking for sub inch groups at 50 with a "slight Breeze"
    If its the rifle and not the user (parallax error/cant/wobbles) I would be looking to return it

    Edited because it sounded a bit harsh

    I have both the .22 and the .177 barrels. The .22 barrel likes JSB Jumbo diabolos so much there's not much point in trying anything else. In .177 it sent the JSB Diabolo Exacts off to all points of the compass with no pattern emerging. Pretty much immediately the barrel took to H&N Baracuda Match and I haven't really looked for another pellet since. In fact I was buying them by the sleeve. (10 tins from Blackpool Air Rifles come with a 10% discount.) I don't have any photographic proof but on a still day my groups have been tighter at 50 yds than your Bis Mags above. Stick with it, the barrel will come to love the pellet and then you'll be shooting the eyebrows off fruit flies at 50 yards!

    The smooth twist i had shot best with jsb exacts 8.44 (4.52 die no 54) but this seems to be the case with almost all of my rifles so it may just be a good batch.
    I found kaisers where the only pellet the crown would shoot well at range (when it would decide to shoot well that is)

    And 1st place at 50meters
    All the other pellets above I tried had 21 shots to lead the barrel and 21shots at the pic you can all see.
    This one is 21 shots without the 21 to follow immediately I could see it liked these
    So the next step it to clean the barrel and use these
    Thanks to everyone who recommended the JSB HEAVY’s

    Lot better than the Bisleys, looks like most are within an inch.

    That's more like it! You have a good plan...let's hope they tighten further.

    Definitely the 2nd best I know I can do better with the Heavy’s tho because I didn’t even know the point of aim. I just used a random dot on the paper with a random point on my reticle
    Exciting now I know the Impact can shoot straight at distance

    100% Tim as I just said above (save repeating myself) I’m actually excited to see what it can do now
