Nice groups! It seems to confirm that it was the wind that was messing you up earlier.

If you’re shooting on your own property and you have a well, I’d definitely go with the Greens. Otherwise, stick with lead, as they won’t get blown as much when the wind kicks up. In game, they’ll deform more too, which is good.

Also, you may consider getting Baracuda Green next time. They’re closer in weight to a light lead pellet and more aerodynamic than FTTs. They’re the best-shooting lead free pellets I’ve found so far.

FWIW, I shot a field target match with my TX200 last year, when it was shooting at 9 FPE. Any target out to 30 yards was in mortal danger, but past that, I didn’t have the hold-over right and it dropped faster than I was ready for, and the wind carried it more than I was ready for. Now, it’s tuned and shooting at about 14 FPE and should be better at longer range.
