What pellets are you using Ken ?

I’m thinking you may be seeing the results of a high (ish) % of Antimony – which can be a bugger to remove. Antimony is used to harden some Pellets.
EDIT – Just seen your comment about JSB Heavies. It’s a mystery !

Hawken, the SmoothTwist barrels are not ‘twisted’ – the spiraling is applied from the exterior. With this system (ST) there is no cutting, the lands & grooves are pressed through from the outside which should give a VERY smooth set of raised lands.
