Favorite Pellet?

Post by Henry88 » Mon Feb 25, 2019 1:26 am

Hey, so I'm doing some night shooting. It's 71 degrees with no wind, and shooting a Walther Terrus (4.5mm) @30 yds.

To this point, I've based everything on the 8.3g RWS Superdomes. But I bought some 8.64g H&N Field Target Trophy (remembering a NCG post ???) and my gun may be liking them a little more :)

QB78 gets Crosman Premiers.

So what are you guys shooting?

BTW, I hate to say this, but on the same range (30 yds and both have similar UTG Leapers A/O scopes) I think I'm more accurate with the Walther airgun than the Henry Classic.

Not surprised that your Walther can shoot so well at 30 yards. That distance is what I consider to be "home range" for air gun shooting. Would take a match grade rimfire to keep up with your Walther at that distance.

My pellets are very much a matter of what each individual airgun likes and, believe me, airguns are at least as fussy about pellet choice as rimfire are about ammo choice.

My two major brands are H&N or JSB, but Crosman Premier Domed are the choice of some guns and others like some of the pricey stuff like Kodiak Match and so on.

I shoot very little pellet. The ones I have are Crosman. No idea the specifics.

I'm sure they're the Premier HPs Mags, 7.9 grain. I shoot them out of my Beeman badged Chinese QB78. When the pressure starts getting low (no way to top off) I switch to Daisy wadcutters ($2/tin) that are actually quite accurate (for me :) )

In the springer I use RWS and H&N and am also going to pick up some JB exacts. German pellets for a German gun seem to be working :D
