Nice to see some locals around here sharing the same interest.
I thought there were only a handful of us that used air rifles.
What's everyone using?
Like I said I have a phantom .22.

What are you using for pellets?
Hollow points or pointed?

Most of us around the forum agree, generally speaking, pointed pellets are less accurate than hollow point or dome pellets.

Welcome Tooker- I have a couple .177's- the Talon is my Granddaughter's and have used the HW97

on gophers to 56yards(Predator Pellers), I Prefer the .22's (Brocock favourite) and new .25 Condor listed below, for pure fun shooting, indoors or out.

I do not use pointed pellets - they do not shoot well in most guns, compared to round nosed or Predator pellets. The H&N Barracuda pellets are very accurate

in both my .22's and the .25.
