#1 Pellet in my Beeman R1 .20cal
June 30, 2016
Kodiak Extra Heavy, .20cal, 13.27gr pellets are most precise from the 10 different pellets I shot from my .20 Beeman R1. Using a AO 4-12 scope with Caldwell front and rear adjustable rests on a supported platform, there is no question they are #1 in that rifle...awesome groups with Kodiak 13.27gr. Close second place was 13.73gr JSB Diabolo. All other 8 different pellets that I shot really opened up at 35 yards and beyond. Kodiak #1, Diabolo's #2; Kodiak better at +45yds than the Diabolos out to 60yds...inside of 40yds both pellets were about even. I put 5 shots per target, per tin, at the following ranges:25-35-45-55-60yds (x25 shots per tin, 5 shots per target) on all 10 different pellet tins pictured below (250 total shots). A fun day behind a superbly accurate air rifle - but as with ALL air rifles - you need to find the 'right' pellet. It still amazes me how finicky air rifles are with different pellets, take the time and find the pellet, then the gun becomes fun because it's all on you...
Pros:#1 in my Beeman R1 .20 cal. Very uniform, fliers are rare. My go to pellet. Very stable at +45 yards unlike all others I shot.
Cons:None - when you find a pellet that throws dime size groups at 35yds all day long you just shoot that pellet...
There is a Difference
October 9, 2007
There is a definite difference in the effectiveness of these pellets. The other style pellets I had been using often times took 2 or more pellets to finish the job. Using the extra-heavy pellets the first time it took only one solid hit to knock down a big jack rabbit and he stayed down.
