How does the fps work in regard to pellet weight? For example if I were to use a heavy weight .177 pellet and adjust the pistol to shoot just under 500 fps, however if measured with standard 7.9 grain .177 it would be above that.

Also on multi pump pistols like 1377, say if a flat top pistol were installed, how many pumps will it be measured at?

The chronograph testing would be done with the pellet you use in the match. If you are under 500 fps, your are good to go.

In these rules it says scopes are restricted to 12X.
At the beginning of this thread the rules say 4X.
Did I miss something?

Nice. I plan on doing some traveling for archery this summer. Perhaps I can get in some airgun shoots. :) :)
