Thanks to Whitewolf, I have a 15" 9mm setup in my Condor and it ain't quiet. With the power wheel between 1 & 2(I thought it was set at 2) it shot in the mid 600's with JSB 77.62 gr pellets.
I let one of the new shooters have a crack at it, at 50 yards it's about 3 mils. He said he was aiming for the mouth on the steel wolf target and hit it exactly. It's a pretty awesome setup.

The pellets in the photo are the new 78 gr. JSBs, and they are as beautifully made as all the JSB Exacts....

The pellets are very nicely formed. Up swaging them too a skirt of 0.364 they fit your earlier 9mm bbl very nicely. They have produced very nice ragged holes @15m. I have not tested them further upon your bbls. Testing went upon another version of 9mm bbl. Which so far has produced very promising long range results with the JSB pellets and heavier casted rnds.

I find that confusing.... The .35 cal JSB pellets I have here measure 0.357" at the head and 0.365" at the skirt already, straight from the tin.... this is pretty typical for a diablo pellet where the head fits the groove diameter of the barrel and the skirt is 0.007 - 0.010" larger....
