Did you take the height between the center of the scope and the center of the barrel into account? This also makes a small difference. I don’t know if this makes a difference of 0.5 mildot.

And BC value will indeed vary with barrels.

Yes I have carefully measured that. the scope height on wildcat is 2.5 inches and thatvon Vulcan is 2.4 inches, not a big difference. I think it’s all due to the barrels. Seems the CZ barrel is shooting the pellet more efficiently.


From memory I believe that the Chairgun scope height is measured from scope LOS to barrel LOS as measured at the muzzle.
