    Default Pellet survey

    This can be an interesting data base. The more members play along the more helpful it can be...

    What pellet do you shoot, at what velocity, through what rifle and for what purpose?

    At present:
    4.52mm AA Field 8.44gr - 785fps - AA TX200 MKIII - FT
    4.52mm JSB express 7.87gr - 810fps - Steyr LG110 - FT
    4.53mm JSB exact 8.44gr - 830fps - AA S410 TDR - PC&Plinking
    5.1mm JSB exact 13.73gr - 865fps - HW100 - PC&Plinking

    In the past:
    4.52mm AA Field 8.44gr - 790fps - AA EV - FT
    4.52mm AA Field 8.44gr - 795fps - AA S410 TDR - FT&PC&Plinking
    5.52mm JSB exact 13.73gr - 500fps - Marauder PCP pistol - PC&Plinking
    5.1mm JSB exact 13.73gr - 995fps - Daystate Air Ranger - PC&Plinking
    4.52mm AA Field 8.44gr - 775fps - BAM B40 - FT
    4.52mm AA Field 8.44gr - 790fps - AA S400 - FT
    5.52mm AA Field 16gr - 780fps - AA S410 - PC&Plinking
    4.52mm AA Field 8.44gr - 900fps - Hatsan Mod80 - PC&Plinking (best accuracy of all pellets tested, reduced velocity and a mze tune would have yielded better results)

    With all of these I achieved acceptable accuracy. (5 shot group over 25m outdoors would be sub 10mm)

    That's interesting.
    Do you use the lighter pellet for a flatter trajectory and less dialing in?

    I am shooting 4.52, JSB diablo exact heavy 10gr with benjamin trail np xl 1500 at about 880fps. Goes up to 940fps with thr 8gr.. I would like to know if i should go for the 13gr monster JSB, but dont know what the accuracy and fps would be. Whats better for the high power gas piston rifle for better groups and stopping power? High fps 900+ with light pellets? Or lower fps 700-800 with heavy 13gr pellets? This is for hunting at 40m+, birds mostly.
