Reply To: How does a moderator affect velocity
Thanks clgraham! Im pretty happy with the looks myself but intended to further improve in the looks department moving forward.
Well as a percentage, it’s only 0.625% increase in velocity, so almost nothing. The bigger concern I have is that a force is being applied to the projectile while in freeflight. Much like a tail wind that exceeds the pellet velocity. Then as it passes through the exit tunnel, the pressure waive could side load the pellet if it isn’t perfectly concentric. I just dropped a 0.22 diameter rod into the barrel and found that indeed I had a slight axial misalignment which I’ve corrected and I’m getting ready to do some shooting but the wind is gusting, so not going to learn much. Just trigger time fun for now 😉
