Help settle the egg peeling question

My experience, sometimes it almost falls off by itself and sometimes I have to peel it one flake at a time and everything in-between. My usual method of cooking I add eggs to cold water and bring to a boil for about a minute. I let them sit in the hot water for about 10 min and then move to cold water for about 10 more minutes to cool before peeling. I am starting to believe that some eggs just peel easier than others. Are there any sure fire methods for easy peeling?
