So, finally got to do some shooting over a chrono today. I'm pleasantly surprised, out of the box I'm seeing 268-270 with normal paint. Here's the kicker, when I switched over to FS (same .686 sizer, Crosman 12g) I saw the same exact range instead of the typical increase most have reported. Fluke?
I fired several dozen of each just to be sure and that's what I saw. The paint is on the old side for me at about 8 months but it's been rotated constantly and shows very few dimples.
