The photos aren't fantastic, I know... but I wanted to get some photos up. I'll post some better photos with better lighting once I get the satin polishing done.

If I fill to 2000 PSI starting fill pressure I'll get around 13 to 15 good, consistant, usable shots using the JSB 18.1 grain pellets.
Here's the velocities for those shots:
2000 to 2050 PSI Starting Pressure-
Shot #1- 797.2, 2- 803.0, 3- 802.5, 4- 804.4, 5- 805.8, 6- 803.8, 7- 807.8, 8- 806.4, 9- 806.1, 10- 806.7, 11- 806.5, 12- 803.4, 13- 799.6, 14- 802.3 & 15- 797.3
1400 to 1450 PSI Ending Pressure-
Through those (15) shots I get an average of 803.8 with an Extreme Spread of 10.6 and a Standard Deviation of 3.3. From the low to peak velocity I get a variance of 1.32% between those high and low velocities. That will provide a very consistant point of impact throught those (15) shots. It uses approximately 40PSI per shot, which isn't fantastic but it isn't horrible either.
Before the spring change it was shooting the 14.66 grain H&N FTT at between 813 and 842 for (20) shots. So I've not lost much in velocity switching to the heavier 18.1 JSB's and my shot string is way more consistant.
Now I've just got to sight it in with the JSB's and then I'll take it out the next time I go Jack Rabbit hunting. The only real drawback of hunting with the Discovery is that it will take me a little longer to reload between shots if I miss. That just means I better not miss! Also, the Discovery is not near as quiet as the M-Rod. But if I hit my target I won't really have to worry too much about the "pop" that it makes when I shoot.
