Exactly, and I had the stock Well inner barrel in there.

They are more accurate and have much more stable flight for bbs.

Also remember that bb weight has a good deal to do with accuracy. Generally speakin the heavier the bb the more stable the trajectory of the ball will be. Barrel length and diameter also play a part but generally speakin using a good gun that fires 300-320 with 0.25 bbs will be far more beneficial than using a cannon thAt fires over 400fps.

Hope that helps a little
That did for me at least, very insightful, thanks for the post

I downgraded my bolt action from 470 FPS to 440 FPS and I saw a HUGE increase in range and accuracy.
