BBs, pellets, and slugs, oh my! Satisfy all your airgun ammo needs in one place.

When you're looking for BB or pellet gun ammo, having choices is good. Plinking in the backyard requires a different kind of ammo than hunting, and shooting paper targets is very different from shooting furry targets. Take a look at all the options available, from pellet gun bullets (slugs) that will improve your hunting game to different alloy BBs that will have you plinking like a pro.

Airgun Ammo FAQs

How do I choose the right pellet gun ammo for my air gun model?

When choosing pellet gun ammo, you need to consider a few factors:

  • Airgun ammo type and caliber - check the receiver of your airgun where the ammo type and caliber are engraved. You can also check your owner's manual, which should offer more information about compatible ammo.
  • Shooting purpose - are you aiming for precision target shooting or gearing up for a hunting expedition? Light flat-nosed pellet gun ammo is better for target shooting, and heavy pointed airgun ammo is better for hunting.
  • Ammo material - lead ammo is popular for its accuracy and consistency, while alloy ammo is popular for its faster velocity.

Experiment with different pellet gun ammo types to see what works best with your airgun. Just be sure to only use ammo that is compatible with your airgun.

Can different pellet gun ammo types affect the performance of my air gun?

Different ammo types can significantly impact the performance of your airgun. Factors such as weight, shape, and material all determine performance.

  1. Ammo weight can affect the velocity and trajectory of your shots. Lighter ammo travels farther with a flatter trajectory, while heavier ammo travels shorter distances with more of an arc.
  2. Ammo shape can also play a role in performance. For example, pointed ammo has greater penetrating power than round ammo, and hollow points are designed for maximum expansion on impact, making them best suited for hunting.
  3. Ammo material can influence accuracy. Lead ammo is known for stability and accuracy, while alloy ammo is lighter and can achieve greater velocity but can sometimes sacrifice accuracy to do so.

Are there specific air gun ammo types recommended for target shooting vs hunting?

Precision and accuracy are paramount in target shooting. Therefore, lighter-weight ammo is commonly preferred as it offers less wind resistance and a flatter trajectory. Wadcutter, or flat-nosed ammo, cuts paper targets cleanly, making scoring easier.

On the other hand, with hunting, the focus shifts to impact and penetration. Heavier ammo is favored because it delivers more kinetic energy and penetrates deeply, increasing the likelihood of a humane kill. Hollow points or rounded ammo are popular because they can hit hard and expand on impact, leaving a large wound channel.

How can I ensure consistent performance and accuracy when using air gun ammo?

To ensure consistent performance of your airgun ammo, follow key practices:

  • Quality control - inspect your ammo for defects before use. Discard ammo that is damaged or deformed.
  • Cleaning and maintenance - regularly clean your gun to prevent the buildup of dirt, debris, or too much lead residue. A clean barrel and action can contribute to better performance.
  • Sight alignment - properly align your sights or scope before shooting. Ensure your sights are zeroed in correctly to help you hit the target consistently.
  • Practice regularly - regular practice will help you build your skills and create a shooting ritual to develop muscle memory for shooting consistency. You can hone your accuracy by setting targets at different distances and practicing hitting them within a certain time. Reduce the time allowed as you improve.
