I have casted and hand loaded for pistols,rifles and shotguns going on 16 years and my ruger gp100 357 will punch one ragged hole at 25 yards with a hand cast wad cutter 140gr. At 1,550 f.p.s., out performs any commercial jacketed bullet. It is also my go to load to shoot out to 100 yds but not all of my powder guns love them. I know if I size them in my .356 sizing die my groups open up, the small change in diameter  ruins the magic. I would think small changes in projo diameter or barrel tolerances would have the same effect on air guns using a similar style projectile.
