Nope. Just that getting them to their optimal speed (stabilization RPM) sooner is better than later.

The person to answer the optimal tightness for pre-spinning would be someone very familar with the material characteristics of FS shells, Annodized Aluminum, and the sciences relevant to mechanical motion (friction, torque, etc).

The problem with pellets is that their relatively soft lead and they relatively easily can conform to a rifling pattern, unlike a First Strike round.
