difference in velocity but the heavier pellets hit harder. All in all the perfect pellet for my(cheap) rifle.
I use these in a Hatsan mod 125 sniper and can consistently hold 3/4" groups at 20 yds. all day, or until the screws start to loosen up on the rifle. You need to keep an eye on that.
Indoors, 10 yds rifle in a vise
My rifle isn't too picky on pellets but shoots these quite inconsistently. Power set to 7, I will get two hole groups with 10 shots fired. Randomly they fly into either hole. The two hole group at 1" apart.
Power set to 10, the group opens up to 1.5". Bad at 10yds.
I didn't wash pellet like some do prior.
Below are the statistics I get with this pellet and the Gamo Bone Collector Maxxim:
Velocity Min - 634 fps
Velocity Max - 642 fps
Velocity Ave - 639 fps
Standard Dev - 2.54 fps
Extreme Spread - 8 fps
Muzzle Energy - 16.37 fpe
Best Group(25 yds) - .71 inches
Included image shows two separate groups of 3 shots each on same target. The upper 3 are Sniper Lights and the lower 3 are Sniper Heavies - both at about 900-930 fps. Combined group size was under 4/10". Separately the two different pellets each grouped smaller. Until I tried these pellets, I had no idea of the accuracy potential of the Benjamin Maximus. This test was fired with a bipod and sand bag and 16 power scope. The center bullseye is 1/4"
