    Default heavy pellets on springers

    how does the heavy pellets damage your spring
    Because the heavy pellets is actualy giving your spring more coushen then the light pellets
    and the ownly pellets that would realy damage your spring is if thay were to small and leting the air pass like if it were to be dry fired

    but thaTS JUST MY OPINION LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU GUYS THINK?

    Hi Trigger, the heavy pellet gives to much cushion and causes the piston to bounce on the air cushion. This bounce is what kills the spring.

    On your Hatsan you could probably get away with that for a while. Spring wont last as long as in other situations. That said. 8.4g will still be better.

    Check charliedatuna.com. 9gr is the maximun weight for a springer if you want the spring to last.

    If that is true, a .20 and .22 shouldn't last long at all.

    you can tune a rifle for different pellet weights. heavy pellets = heavier piston (definately) or bigger transfer port (I recon). For this reason a .2 shooting a 8gr pellet will suffer the same as .177 shooting 5gr. The other thing to remember is the increased efficiency with increasing calibres. thus it takes less effort to move a 10gr .2 pellet than a 10gr .177

    Assumed we were talking .177. .20 & .22 Have a whole different set of friction vs weight coefficients so a direct comparrason is impossible.
