Not necessarily.
As long as the Varmint-X BBs are not flattening out and you got the pattern size you want, then you are good to go. If you see small "slits" in the paper target, instead of small holes, then your Choke size may be a bit too tight. I use a .650 Choke as well, and get a nice pattern without any flattening of the Varmint-X. Other shotguns I use require a slightly more open (.665 and ,670) chokes to prevent flattening of the pellets.
