Instead of a bronze bush I use a VFG Intensive felt on a cleaning rod plus adaptor. On close inspection, flakes of shiny metallic lead can be seen on the felt. 😨

I think flattening the edges of the pellet head with a sizer somehow adversely affects aerodynamics/pellet stability, at least it does with my rifle.

As for twist rate and rotational speed; hasn’t the advent of smooth twist barrels been a game changer with their far slower twist rates, but still producing decent groups out to 75+yards.😐

Such a lot to learn with this air gunning business.😩
