Description

Any small changes you make to a pellet can make a difference to its accuracy and trajectory down range, due to the low velocity of air rifles compared with rimfires. After washing your airgun pellets as described above you should lubricate them to stop them oxidising (unless you plan to use them immediately). Oxidation on the surface of the pellets will increase the friction between the pellet and the rifling in the bore, so the passage of the pellet down the bore ‘judders’. You don’t want that to happen. Premium brands like JSB and H&N (and others) pay great attention to how each pellet comes off the assembly line, especially with their match ammo. On the other hand, more budget-friendly brands allow for a bit more slop in their ammo. This is why, and this happens quite a bit with big-box ammo, you can have one tin that shoots pretty decently and then the next shoot terribly. Or, have wide variances within the same tin. While head size is very important, pellet weight is equally, possibly more important. Pellets are measured in grains and identified in values as small as tenths or hundredths of grains. So if we take our field target trophy pellets, they are marketed as 14.66 grain pellets. But what are the variances, if any, from pellet to pellet? There’s only one way to really find out, and that’s to get a precision jeweler’s scale and weigh your sorted pellets. Let’s Bring it Home Weight plays a similar role as calibre, with heavier pellets being more powerful but sacrificing a little accuracy thanks to having more of a looped trajectory. The pellets weight is measured in grain with 8-10gr being about average for .177 and 15-18gr being about average for .22. Pellet Shape

Shoot a 20-shot group of sized pellets and another 20-shot group of unsized pellets at the same distance. You really should shoot at 20 yards or more to see a significant difference, although at 10 yards you can sometimes notice a difference if the number of shots is high enough. Your experience with pellet sizing seems to be the same as everyone else. But pellet seating is a different matter — WITH SOME AIRGUNS. Lower-powered spring guns may do better with pellets that are seated, or at least I am getting some results that suggest that. The jury is still out on seating, but sizing does seem to be a useless endeavor. Precision turned in the UK from stainless steel, these pellets sizers force the pellet through a reamed taper, ensuring every pellet is exactly the same size, reducing group sizes and eliminating “flyers” in the field. Needless to say, the sizer will only reduce pellet size. Putting 4.51mm pellets through a 4.53mm sizer will have no effect. This month, we take a look a closer look at airgun pellets. If you’re pondering pellet selection, whether it’s target shooting or hunting on your airgun or air pistol, this is the post to help you choose the right buy….. The correct airgun pellet selection is essential to a good day’s shooting Pellet SizeThese pellets are designed for practice and target shooting and are so shaped to cut clean holes in the target for accurate scoring. The pellets are usually cheap and are available from many different brands. The downside of this shape is that they are less aerodynamic than some of the other types available and will start to tumble at long range. Also thanks to their flat headed shape they are not good for penetration and so not suitable for pest control at all. Domed The majority of my pellets were in the 4.54 head size with 4.53 and 4.55 being on the outer fringes for a .01 mm plus or minus for the 400 count tin which I thought was pretty tight tolerence.

I've been sizing Crosman primer Hollow Points and testing them. My Gamo likes the loser 4.47-4.48 pellets best. It also loves the RWS Superdomes that just happen to be 4.47 and 4.48 head size. I don't think this is a coincidence. Some shooters are running Predators through a sizing die to reduce their outside diameter by one-thousandth of an inch. This makes them easier to load. Keep in mind that sizing much more than one-thousandth can also render them inaccurate. I only have this secondhand and have never tried it myself. But it does make sense. If it works, this is a legitimate use of a pellet sizer.It's been a while since I've looked into pellet sizing properly but when I have in the past it seemed 50/50 whether it made a difference and I've struggled to find anyone able to actually quantify the difference & remove placebo from the equation. There are also larger calibres available, such as .25 and .303, but in my opinion these are only really worth bothering with if you’re shooting an FAC rifle that is over 12ft/lbs, as the extra mass of the pellet requires more force to push it. These larger pellets are designed for hunting at long ranges and can provide devastating power at the 20-30ft/b range.
