Very true about personality. My carbine .22 has a total spread from 190 bar down to 90 bar of just 19 fps and 98 shots in total. 72 shots of which are within a 10 fps band. I wouldn't bother regulating it as gains are likely to be small. That said my .177s were a different kettle of fish. After regulating my classic I now had 135 shots in a 12 fps window and after letting it settle down and firing a few shots through it I did a 20 shot string just to check power level. This was the result:-
714 712 712 713 715 713 712 713 713 715 714 713 713 712 713 712 714 714 713 713 (thread extract here:- viewtopic.php?f=5&t=3300#p28841
For me it's a great improvement and well worth the effort although like others I was sceptical about doing it. As you say each rifle is different and some by their very nature will shoot better than others and the gains brought about by regulating will be smaller.
