The JSB Jumbos and the Express seem popular with the .22 crowd. Guys with higher power use the Jumbos at just under 16 grains and others use the Express at about 14.3 gr. They both seem to be good accurate pellets.

I have had good results with Crosman Premiers (the ones in a brown cardboard box) and also believe it or not the Hollow Points that come in a tin of 500.

My .22, HW100 shot the Premiers well and HP as well.

When the above mentioned pellets are not available, the next choice for my shooters would be the Gamo hunter pellets in the green tins...

thanks guys that narrows it down to 4 or 5 types , alot easier to manage than the multitudes of different types out there. ill see how these work once the better weather is here and see which works best then ill try some of the others out there.

I shot most of last season with JSB Jumbos. In all honesty I haven't experimented with any other pellets in .22 for FT use because the JSBs performed great.

I have some Gamo hunters in .22 cal,they are quite an accurate pellet.Head and shoulders above the Crosman tins.Lebarons sells them for 5.27 for a 250 tin.
