Ok, some folks buy into the Washing, Weighing and Sorting of Pellets. Some feel its more important to get consistent head size which is pretty difficult given that a pellet isn't perfectly round, combined with it being made of soft lead alloy, so take measurements from different spots, you can get different measurements using calipers.
You could use a v-block with a dial indicator but that could be problematic as well.
With my CPH's, I do wash, weigh and sort by .10 of a grain and lube with Krytech.
A couple of friends(retired employees from a national labratory that are also big time shooters(powder/air), accuracy and ballistics enthusiasts) posed an interesting suggestion to try and ferret out some consistency in terms of measuring pellets after washing, weighing and sorting them.
Building, they do love to make things lol, a device where you place your pellet, heads up on a base, drop/lower a cover(for lack of a better scientific term)over the base and blast precise metered air around the pellet to "air gauge" it, rendering a numerical value and sorting the pellets based on that "air resistance value", then kryteching them to go out and test them for accuracy and consistency.
In theory, one "batch" based on Weight and/or Air Resistance # should/could prove to yield the best and most consistent results.
What do you think? Too theoretical, worth spending $200 on some parts to see, lol?!?!
I too have pondered the sorting of pellets for a long time

And I've even come up with some effective, though tedious methods that seemed worthy in the past.
But I suspect the equipment to conduct the testing you seem to be proposing couldn't be made for $200 unless one already had some of it on hand, or unless extreme precision were sacrificed, and then, why bother?
Gun tech stuff improvements give diminishing returns. Shooter tech improvements always pay off. Trigger control, position, head and sight alignment...I`d rather be a better shooter than have better equipment...c
TONY ! Tony! tony!......... you have been so quite lately..........

You must be well on the way to recovery. Personally, I kinda agree with Mr, c, When I feel I'm shooting 100% then I'll sweat the small stuff. JSB's out of the tin are usually pretty clean but I still have to clean the barrel every tin or two. I have found that some of my fliers are sometimes self inficted. Pellets accidently loaded skirt first don't group worth a darn. I usually load them in te right orientation but they do have a tendency to flip over if I'm not careful.
