X27I thought BC was only based on the shape of the projectile?, I assume if the two barrles are adding there own unique rifleing groves to the pellet it would change the shape and therefore change the BC?

Is this line of thought ccorrect?

Yes and I think that’s what is actually happening or maybe the difference of rate of twist is playing a role.
