Not my best group.
« on: April 11, 2016, 11:57:16 PM »
I had some work tonight assigning pigeons to the back bench on a Wellington building. I had a new tin of polymag pellets for the p rod. I had used these before and they grouped really well. So set up a target at about 14 m. Man did they suck. Disappointing the difference in tins. I decided not to use them as I was getting paid to shoot pigeons and I'm sure I would have missed if I used them. So faithful h&n did the job. 25 pigeons later.

Just buy decent pellets. JSB or Airarms or H & N. They are pretty good and don't need sorting.
Keep clear of Gamo, Accupel and a lot of the rest. the rest. But the big thing is that you will have to experiment to find out which pellet your gun performs best with. Two identical guns will sometimes prefer different pellets. If you try Crosman Premier buy only the ones in the cardboard box with the black stamp. If you buy from Ron Young he will see you right. Most sports shop counter people wouldn't know.
