At a previous FT match I heard people talking about lubricating pellets. Just wondering what the advantage to lubricating pellets is ? Is this more of a FT thing or would it help for general plinking ? What type of lube is best ? No wise cracks. :roll:

Also I use mostly JSB pellets would there be any point to cleaning them ? I know after shooting there is only a slight lead deposit left on my fingers from them. Unlike cheaper pellets, Crosman or Daisy type.

I use to wash and lube Crosman Premiers when I used them and still do when I break out the ld/SS or USFT. They were very dirty and performance was definitely better with the sorted, cleaned and waxed pellets.

I have found that the JSB pellets are quite clean and seem to have a very light lube on them from the factory. I sort them by weighing the ones I use in competition, but do not do any other prep. I tried washing and lubing them with Krytec wax, but found no difference in performance, so I stopped wasting my time.

For general use, I just shoot JSBs from the tin and have not had problems.

I am pretty sure some guys lube the JSB pellets, but I am not sure if they have done so because of improved performance they have found from testing, or if it just seems like the thing to do.

"It Increases accuracy by 50%" :shock: .....No, it doesn't...but it keeps the pellets from oxidizing.

$15.95 for that can of Power Airgun Oil, which will last you forever, you don't need much of the stuff...

Or they also sell a full cleaning kit that comes with this stuff as well as a bunch of other cleaning supplies, good if don't have a decent cleaning kit...

For corrosion protection on metal gun parts, I use Rem-Oil. Larry Durham(ld) tested many high end oils and found the Rem-Oil superior to all of them for preventing corrosion on metal gun parts. I pick it up for around $5 for a large spray can at Walmart in the US. I do not use it on pellets.

I use to use Turtle wax Wash and Wax to clean and lube my Air Arms Diablo pellets. I would also put all of my pellets through a Pellet Sizer.

Worked for me

Cheers

Dave :wink:
