They .22 Extremes shoot well out of Lothar Walther barrels around 910 fps.  Here are 10 shots at 30 yards from my Airwolf MCT.  JSB’s tend to run 5.50 and 5.51 head sizes – these tend to run 5.52 and 5.53.  That extra size might be part of the issue for some barrels.
 

At 40 yards, they start to open up (target 24)

I get similar results with the .177s out of my Daystate CR-X and FX Ranchero.  I have not found the sweet spot for the .25 Extremes.
