Box ( er.... plastic shrink ) stock 2240 ?

Came with a ridiculously rough trigger, so the first hour I was already modifying that.
Probably blew the warranty ?

Anyhow, with absolutely no "power mods" and shooting Crosman Premier 14.3 grain pellets, an acoustical cronograph shows an average of around 317 feet per second.
I've seen a high of 388, and a low of 241 ( usually the first shot ) but never anything close to the advertised claimed 460.

Is there some ultra-light pellet that does produce 460, or have I got a defective piece ?

Should also note that the first powerlet took six shots to pierce, and the second ( the one in it now ) took an astounding 46 shots to pierce the powerlet.

It seems to me that something's rotten in Denmark, but I could be wrong.
What's your experience with a stock 2240 and Crosman Premier Ultra Magnum pellets on a 70 degree spring day ?

This gun is also surprisingly quiet compared to the reviews. ( a not unpleasant surprise )
