    I grouped them into 3 groups, light, with about 10 pellets in there, medium with about 2/3, and heavy with the rest.
    I guess as this is all about eliminating the odd flyers, I could up the bandwidth on med to heavy, to get a few more in the medium band?
    That’s if the flyers come from the pellets on the extreme of weight which is my understanding?

    Thanks!

    Hope to is probably more accurate. X bull i think is 2 mm and the 10 ring on our cards is 7 or 8 mm from memory, score downwards. (clip 9 ring - it's a 9)
