If anything I would have thought it would stay stationary and just get tighter, or maybe go up or down.

I'm sure this is rudimentary, just trying to get edumucated.
Maybe its not the Eley contact that are moving, they might be spot on maybe your zero with the bulk ammo is the one that's off, hhhmmmm just a thought

Here we go for another lap around the track, making that slow circular motion.

All righty then, you can try the copper covered lead at 1255 fps; I do not recommend it as I have not used it. 1255 is ways too fast for our porpoises.

My baby is the Aguila at 1130 fps--
Super Extra
Standard Velocity
40 grains of lead Solid Point
Eley Primed
.22 Long Rifle
