This here pellet performed really well.
I thought perhaps these Crosman Premier Ultra Magnum pellets might be a little more consistent in outside dimensions which would equate to better accuracy. My air rifle itself is what I consider to be an accurate air rifle out to 60 yards. I can easily get solid hits on feral pigeon out that far when the pellets fit snuggly in the chamber.
So far the Ultra Magnum pellets appear to be a little more consistent size-wise but I'm still getting certain percentages of each tin that are to small for my chamber. And it's not that my air guns' chamber is somehow to large; it's the inconsistency of the dimensions of these pellets. To that end I've taken it upon myself to fabricate some pellet sizing dies. So far it appears to be working but, much more testing is needed/
Domes, on the other hand, are quite accurate and shoot very well through any of my rifles! Break barrels or PCP. Everything from 12 fpe up to 40fpe with accuracy and dependability! they are reasonably clean, and well formed with minimal deformation per can of 500. When bought in 3+1, it becomes a great deal for a very good pellet.
off the bench or lean on something dime size groups are there at 20 & 40 yrds. Great pellet..
At 50 yards the same.
But they shoot so, so consistently. Every group I shoot that isn't a ragged hole at 20yd is my own fault, and although I intentionally bought a bunch of sizes to test varying loads, but I'll probably come back and order a few thousand of these.
You can talk about high speed, heavy weight, and specialized "expanding" forms all you want, but if you put a .22 caliber pellet on vital target zones it will kill every single time. Get the accurate, consistent pellet and get to be a better shot, don't blame your equipment.
So I waited until I had a big enough order to get free shipping and added several tins of Ultra Magnums.
At less than 2 cents a pellet there is no need to look any further if your air rifle shoots these well.
