.177 Pellets
« on: January 01, 2019, 08:51:14 PM »
Hi All,
Just brought a Hatsan 125 .177, and I was wondering if anyone could give me their thoughts on pellets, which do they find best for accuracy, impact etc. Any info would be much appreciated. Happy New Year Chaps.

Cheers

Jace

Testing. is what you need to do.

accuracy is king.

heavier pellets carry more energy. but if they don't hit where you aim, that means SFA.

I'm sure the usual's will be recommended. H&N, JSB, Crosman premiere.

Don't be gulled into "pointy pellets are hunting pellets". see point 2.

I feel like it's been said before, but every gun is different. even 2 of the same model side by side may prefer sifferent pellets. see point 1 above.

Right on.  It is all these dud pellets and wonky guns that stop me from realising my true potential as a champion shooter.

I could be wrong, but gun city have a house brand pellet, that is actually made by H and N. From memory about $15 for a tin of 500, so could be worth trying them.
