I sort of went thru most of the suggestions to get to this point. I'f I'm still clipping baffles after enlarging them, then something might be wrong with the barrel.
I'm now almost out of my Benjamin Domes. My JSB order, from last Saturday, was lost by AoA and shipped this past Thursday and now expected on the 28th.
My basement is only 10 yards and I try to shoot our back (at work) stealthily so taking the shroud off doesn't lend very well for those efforts.
I think I'll wait for my pellets - run the gambit again (with the shroud off and on with the baffles removed) and if I'm still having problems - get this one replaced.
Thanks for all the comments.
