Cool idea. I have been tinkering a little with the washing and the oil. The only thing I can notice with clean pellets, is there is less crud buildup in my barrel, and in my airstripper. Accuracy is still the same. My new gun will be here in 2 weeks. Can't wait.

I have been using all kinds of oil, everything from Sunflower oil to very light Silicone oil. I have now idea what to use.

What kind of oils do you use??

I think shooting pellets straight out of the can is the best way to go. You have to clean your barrel in any case

Have a great weekend

Cleaning factory lubricant,s off the pellet,s and then adding lubricant,s is a bit redundant. However I have washed many a pellet during my testing phase, where I was trying many many different pellet,s in search of the best one. Some of which were quite dirty and also to test the difference between washed, and not washed, lubed and not lubed. In some cases, washing and lubing decreased accuracy, and sometimes it helped, but nothing I did, to probably 40 or so different brand,s of pellet,s, were as good as JSB,s right out of the can. If you want to see for yourself what difference it makes, I suggest you use silicone based lubricants. Oil based lube,s will diesel, which might damage your gun. Good luck. You are in for a great adventure in air gunning.

Thanks guys
It seems like there is no difference in cleaning and lubing pelletes.
I will shoot all my pellets straight out of the can from now on

Thanks for all the advice

Very interesting, I don't wash my pellets any more. I think from now on I will shoot my pellets out of the tin, JSB's that is.

I have one more question for you guys, how do you clean the barrel of your gun? I have seen guys clean their gun with some fishing line and some pacthes to all out with a rod and a Jag.

How do you guys clean your gun, and what do you lube do you use,

Thanks

Biagio

Many of my guns are like this, but if I do not run patches through the USFT and ld/SS they will lose accuracy after 130 or so shots. Air Arm guns never seem to lose their accuracy.

My New Air Arms EV2 perform flawlessly with the JSB Exact 8.44gr
I have tried the JSB Express but the EXact is more accurate.
Thanks guys for all the tips

Hi kazibole. $40 is the default shipping. Drop sniper an email and he will sort that out for you. :wink:

I was just saying the exact same thing to Voltar1 yesterday. I have only cleaned the barrel on one of my rifles in 2 years and that was because it was shooting eratically. Turns out the gun just needed a new regulator and Walter fixed that little problem in a hurry :wink: :wink:

I also came to a startling conclusion at the AIR FT shoot on Saturday. If the rifle I am shooting (belonging to me) does not shoot well with JSB Exacts, It will be sold as I don't want to carry half a dozen different types of pellets. :( :(

You wouldnt be using mine then Dave, round and round in circles for 2 1/2 years due to JSB lack of quality control.
Buying any JSB pellet is trial and error, i have one tin left from 20000 then back to square one.
Trying other batches often reveals they can be ok for 30 or so shots then cant hit a barn door ie 4" group at only 30 yards. Current Express are only usable if i size them, same as previous batches used since early 2008.

Get the right pellet, it wont leave a .22 size hole group at 55 yards, thats what the difference is.
The only way to buy is one tin, try if any good buy the rest.
