I had a trip to the range on Sunday afternoon.

It was enjoyable (plinking, checking zero at various magnifications, fiddling, etc.) although fairly unremarkable except for this:



"What's that, Blerk?"

I'm glad you asked (you always ask such good questions).

That, my friends is what hit me on the arm. 25 yards from me to the target and 25 yards back again. It didn't hit me with enough force to hurt or damage clothing or anything of that sort but I mused that that might be a different story if the distance to the target were less.

Safety first, compadres.
this is also why tin pellets (non toxic) were banned at a club i used to go to, they came back with almost as much force as they were sent to the target with

Swiftly moving on........ :-\



Yep, it's deffo JSB ammo that the rifle prefers.

I agree there's negligible difference between silencer off or on grouping wise, but there is a marked change of impact with it off, which suggests the silencer is controlling the 'jetting' (muzzle flip) of the excessive amount of air coming out of the short barrel. Nowt you can do about that (apart from turn the power down).....it's just the nature of the beast with ultra short carbines/compacts.

So ....................... I'm looking to try a number of different pellets to determine the best for my Bant.

I floated the idea of a "pellet exchange" with the lady running the desk at the range at the weekend:
  • You need 10 or more people.
  • Everyone puts in 100 pellets of their own
  • Each person takes 10 pellets each of 10 different type out of the "pot"

I don't think it'll happen.

So (again) ....................... where's the best place to get a decent selection of pellets from at a good price?

Does anyone know anywhere that allows you to CHOOSE the varieties you'd like?
..........so I packed up and went to the pub.

I've found this place : Pellet Perfect.

They sell packs of 25 pellets of over 160 types of .22 pellet (I didn't bother to look at the .177 range).

Has anybody used them before?

Nope, never used Pellet Perfect (they're obviously referring to the mighty .22 calibre with that name!).....but it sounds very similar to what Pellpax do. https://www.pellpax.co.uk/airguns/airgun-ammunition/airgun-pellets/pellpax-pellet-sample-kit-22/1238

Looking at the Pellpax link, I note that they now provide all top quality pellets. That didn't used to be the case though......as the vast majority of the pellets they used to supply were mainly cheapo ones form the bottom end of the plinking market. Seems they have now pulled their socks up a bit, which is no bad thing. 8)

Indeed, but the Pellpax is a random selection I think.
