    Can anyone tell me the BC of Daystate Select .177 8.44g, Chairgun has Daystate FT 8.5g BC.022
    and Daystate 4.51 8.4g BC.018.
    I thought Daystate & JSB were the same but there is a difference when looking up the skirt.
    Thanks

    depends, every barrel is unique and different batches of pellet can perform differntly.

    do it on paper at your range at measured distances and do groups,:):)nothing like sorting out for yourself and you no its right,ive found chairman good for getting it close then fine tune it in practice

    Nice idea but don't have anywhere to put out targets so I have to rely on Chairgun.

    Using .022 correlates with my set ups.

    just put your pellet in libary, set height between scope centre and barrel centre. the number of clicks, you start range / finish range. the zero for ft you want to always dialup so about 25 - 30 so not to get a negative number.

    You are correct after studyiing the photo's by Kev the Daystate are shorter than JSB and looking up the skirt it matches the FT pellet not the select or JSB, sorry Kev but your data is wrong on the select pellet, BC 0.022 it is.

    His data is correct for his barrel and the specific batch that he tested.

    Don't judge a book by it's cover either, Daystate Selects and JSB Exacts are the SAME pellet. Different batches of the same head size and indeed brand e.g. JSB, can and do exhibit different profiles from different dies used.
