Is it a thing? Running a modify x-range and aa chamber + panthera nub. There is almost no horizontal deviation at all. I have never seen a rifle with such little horizontal shot to shot inconsistency. On the otherhand, the shots are not being very vertically consistent; some shots going well over the crosshair, some going well under. Do I just need to "break it in?"

Before anyone asks: yes, my barrel window was properly cut for the x-range.

I don't really think so. Maybe on the original Gen 1 Maple Leaf buckings (and similarly aged stuff) as the rubber material was different, but with the Autobot and Mr. Hop of late most of the "break in" is just me refiguring out the zero with a new bucking and dialing it in for how I want the bb flight path.

The MR Hop also has very little lateral deviation, but I have experienced some vertical with it - like you describe. In all honesty I see no issue with this unless you're trying to thread a needle past 200ft - which is going to be a tough shot no matter what bucking you're using.

I honestly don't mind the occasional overhop as it usually will just lead to a neck or head shot if I aim for center mass.
