Thanks guys!

Hookster,

The difference I noticed right away was the flatter trajectory of the 25.4gr going so fast. 

With the 34gr, I had a 15/50 yd zero, which required quite a bit of hold under at 30-35 yds.  

With the 25.4gr, I have a 25/50 yd zero, so you can tell how much flatter these lighter pellets go at that speed.  

I am preferring the 25gr pellets due to the flatter trajectory.   They also have less recoil, which only makes a difference in video really. 

I am going to try and get some footage today at the local farm.  If I go in the evening I will have the sun at my back to light up the pellet.  I can set up some 70 yd shots and check the pellet in flight at greater distances.
