There is no reason why traditional air rifles would have an advantage over bullpups in accuracy. Bullpups use full length barrels so, if they are well designed, no reason accuracy should suffer. Some shooters might be less comfortable with certain bullpups but the same is true of traditional rifles. 

The results of the extreme BR comp show bullpups were well represented in the rankings. In the results I saw, Ted was using an FX Bobcat which is well over a pound heavier than the Royale 500. That could give it an advantage in BR shooting where more weight means more stability. FX makes a Royale for target shooting but it weighs significantly more for this reason. You might be able to buy one of their aluminum target stocks for your Royale. 

I don’t know Ted but I know he is a better marksman than the average. I am approximately 99.736% sure that his 100 yard groups would be noticeably better than mine even if we used the same rifle. Shooting is like that. People that are really good seem to practice a lot (more than me).
