    Default Ideal pellet speed is....

    with reference to the FX 2000....thread,

    what would be the maksimum pellet speed that one could use for the hunting rifle, lets say for
    1. A 0.177 and 10,6gr pellet and
    2. a 0.20 and 25gr pellet?

    Does it rely on what the rifle is able to handle?

    It's all about grouping. If you cannot get consistent groups on high power, turn it down and try again until you are satisfied.

    Don't forget to try other pellet brands if you are not having any luck.

    I found that Barracudas do not like to be pushed above 900fps.
    Crosman Premier Heavies and JSB Heavies work all the way to 1000fps.

    .20 25gr will work out to 1000fps

    I get excellent groups with AA Field on high power.
    It's all about what your rifle prefer.
