Given approximately identical consistency while shooting FT, which pellet weight yields better results for you: 10+gr or ~8+gr?  Asking for a friend.

For me, I shoot the JSB/AA 10.3's because my rifle tells me too. LOL

Craig;

If I am understanding correctly, the "given approximately identical consistency" phrase means that they BOTH shoot about as good as the other.

Which wouldn't be surprising because the 8.44 at 890 fps is just a tad above its optimum.

That would be my choice.

JMHO

@hector-j-medina-gThanks for the response.  On further thought (for a friend😉), I guess maybe the extrapolated question centers on wind effects.  And yes, BOTH stacking well has been an assumption. Just thinking freely, the potential of a flatter trajectory of the lighter pellet could simplify ranging/holding.  Too much time on my hands and too little chance to get out to play.
