Yep I'd say your barrel ain't a fan of rws.
Are you going to stick with exact for close range low power, seems they will do the job or go ftt?
I've always had pretty good results with ftt in my guns. Never the best but always up there.
Is it an advantage for you to have a lighter pellet at close range?

The low power setting is for small game (like slarrows) at very close range, 10yards, and at that power setting 2.1FPE the velocity is so low the trajectory is like a rainbow. Infact I think the trajectory peaks at 9yards 😳.
So although the Exscts are usable, I’m going to go with the FTT’s because they are 20% lighter, there fore faster and slightly flatter, but still more them capable of dispatching a sparrow at 10yards. The sparrow will never know the difference between a 25.4gr and a 20gr pellet, but it will help me a little with the drops.
