For 50 yard target shooting (.177 field target practicing) I sort to the tenth for weight and hundredth for head size. A 4.49 vs a 4.51 makes a significant difference in my group at 50.  I’ve found the wrong head size (anything smaller than .450 for me) results in the group opening up significantly.  Those .446’s shot into a 4.4″ group, the .449s into a 1″ group and the .450s shot into a .4 group.  A set of JSB or AA 10.2’s and 10.3 that all have a .451 head size will tear a rough hole with my gun.
