So, last weekend I had adjusted the cross hairs and was ready to shoot woodpigeon. First two shots, two pigeons. Next six shots, another two, missed some because of a combination of darkness and distance.
The ones shot were about 30m+ and I just can't be believe my heavy duty .177 spring loaded airgun could be so accurate. Even after all that distance, the shots go through and through pass the bird. No apparent loss of trajectory, they go in a near straight line with a powerful gun! Very pleased!
Beeman Silver Arrow. Score - 8. Surprisingly tight groups with no bullet drop out to 30'. Doesn't always penetrate the coffee can and the dent in the can isn't as large as I thought such a heavy pellet would give.
RWS Hypermax. Score - 10. There might be better pellets out there, but I haven't tested them yet. Stopping power is hard to gauge here too. Goes right through chipmunk and coffee can. Such a clean hole it almost seem armor piercing.
RWS Meisterkugeln. Score - 8. Just as tight group as Silver Arrow and Hypermax. Doesn't penetrate coffee can either, but I'm going to assume a blunt pellet hitting with such velocity at close range is going to be bad news for the poor chipmunk.
Crosman Destroyer. Score - 7. Not as tight a group as above, but pretty good and much better that others I've shot. Stopping power? Tumbles in flight so leaves a gaping, jagged hole in coffee can. It does this every time.
Crosman Supersonic SSP. Score - 5. Groups are too large to be useful at anything past 10'. Good penetration, but who cares if your not going to hit your target.
Crosman Powershot Gold. Score - 0. Bad groups, poor penetration. Usually doesn't expand to fill up pistols rifling. No penetration of coffee can. Remember this is only tested on 1 pellet gun. It might be better on others.
RSW Super H Hollowpoint. Score - 5. Fair groups, but pistol doesn't have the velocity to let this expand. Seldom, but sometimes would penetrate coffee can.
Gamo Raptor PBA. Score - 5. Kinda same groups as others with this score. Penetrates coffee can with no distortion like Crosman Supersonic SSP and RWS Hypermax.
