Good Morning, All
I am just gauging what pellets everyone uses. I know that FX say to use no more than 18 grains, but the importer here recommends "H&N Barracuda" 21 grains. these are diablo style
I have used these for about 15 months, putting through about 3000 rounds ( work).
I can get about a 25cm grouping at 35 meters and am kid of happy. I find this will vary depending on pressure. At 200psi and they are less accurate...once the pressure drops to 190 psi ( which is what I fill to now) the accuracy improves and I can get about 3 mags before the need to refill...
I tried a box of FX pellets 18 grains, and find they don't have the "hit" that the 21's do for rabbits and foxes.
I would like to know what other people are using and the accuracy they are getting

cheers
