When you have an opportunity, try the 8.4gr under the Air Arms label in both the 4.52 and 4.51 head size.  I had read several reports of people saying they've had better luck with them than those under the JSB label. 

I was skeptical until I tried them.

Shot my best group at 25 yards ever, 5 shots that would hold the pellet in the paper:



And single shots to zero the rifle at 43 yards:

You are going to find the funny. At this point i would not consider changing. I only shot FT. The AAs, even though they have the same weight, have different BC. This changes my trajectory and clicking. It is a pain :).

I have not had any issues with the JSBs and my Air Arms. If the POI change it is usually my fault and the cause is canting.

Hey, I understand.  Don't change what works.

Then again, I love bacon.  Then one day I swiped through some maple syrup.  Let's just say I thought I loved bacon.
