For centerfire handguns, a lighter bullet normally strikes lower on the target than does a heavier one when the same sight picture and setting is used. The reason is that the recoil moves the muzzle up slightly before the bullet exits and the heavier the bullet, the greater the rise of the muzzle. Since recoil is almost nonexistent for CO2 pistols, a heavier pellet usually strikes lower on the target because it has lower velocity. Muzzle jump is not a factor. In some instances, I have been able to tailor the point of impact to the sight setting by selecting a pellet of a different weight.
