The addition length of the lighter pellets could be part of the issue? Are they the exact same alloy as the 12.65’s? Having a slightly larger head diameter could explain some speed lose as well.

In .22, polymags shoot faster in my guns than crosman premiers and the premiers are lighter. I have always assumed maybe the harder lead of crosman pellets is the cause?
