I read somewhere that older springers prefer the older pellets, the likes of Marksman, Radius etc
So I thought, let me give that a little test!
Rifle used : 1970 Gecado 35 in Pristine condition (really! this rifle looks like it left the factory yesterday)
Distance : 10m open sights.
Pellets : Marksmen vs JSB expresses 6 shots each( called flyer in each group)
Position : Sitting, rested on my hand on a chair
On the left JSB, right Marksman.
What have I learned from this?
MY 35 definitely does NOT prefer old brand pellets!
