Because of the wind today, and the fact that I have "go fever" I did not clean the barrel prior to shooting a couple groups yesterday. The barrel was as shot from the tuning procedure, and a few different pellets were used. Here was my set up at 25-yards (zero for HFT)

Groups are five shot, here is a side-by-side with CPL 7.9 boxed on the left and JSB 7.87 on the right:

And a surprise contender, the Crosman 7.9 CPLHP I used for tuning (Yin from Walmart):

I had a couple other pellets, like the Falcon 7.33, which were too light for he breeze, and groups opened up a bit; And a tin pf copper coated pellets in 8.66 (mfg escapes me at the moment) which would not hit the same POI with any consistency.

When weather calms back down I will be ready for a much more thorough round of target shooting. Over-all, I am happy with the end results. The barrel will settle in as it seasons up some, so I am looking forward to shooting it quite often.
