Hey guys, this will tie in with my lubed and washed versus straight from the tin. I got a tin of JSB Exact Jumbo RS 13.43gr in .22 for my Brocock, as I was randomly testing different pellets from my pellet sampler from SSSO. This 24 shot group is straight from the tin.

These pellets proved exceptionally in 5 shot groups so I decided to get a tin to really put it through the test. This isn't conclusive as this was after 24 shots through the chrony and a tear down to relube a bit of things.

Here is 24 consecutive shots (or 4 clips) at 50 yards. Ruler shows 35mm or 1.37" ctc.

What do you guys think? I think it's not bad and may stick with these pellets for awhile.

Those are good results. I tried the RS .22 in my HW95 and was surprised as to how well they shot. They were accurate and consistent. They are on my narrowing list of "best" pellets for that gun.

I like the JSB Exact RSs in my HW97, they seem to work just as well as the RWS Superdomes

And Rick, I've tried...
-JSB 18.13gr
-JSB 13.43gr
-H&N FTT 14.66gr 5.53mm and 5.54mm
-H&N Barracuda 21.14gr
-JSB 14.3gr
-Daystate FT 15.89gr
-JSB 15.89gr
-RWS Super Hollow Point 14.2gr

All do pretty well except those RWS pellets!

I'm going to get another tester pack to try a few more.

Yeah those tester packs from SSSO sure are nice to "pick" what you want and try!
Wish they did that in the .25
This place in the US does but they only ship UPS(BASTARDS)!! Don't want to pay $35 in rip-off fees for a $35.00 pack of .25 mixed pellets!

Sorry, I know this may be "rehashing" but would it still be ridiculously high shipping fees if I use the U.S address? Or is it just for when UPS ships outside the country?

You should invest in a gun powder scale and try weighing your pellets, group/store them in 0.1gr increments and shoot them as such. This is what I do for my pellets used in FT matches, it does make a substantial difference...

I would also try the JSB 15.9gr in 5.52mm or 5.51mm depending which you have already tried, my S400 carbine does love the 13.43gr. JSB Diabolo Exact Jumbo RS in 5.52mm, will hit a hockey puck every time at 100yds if Im awake :lol:

Thanks for the advice Joel. I did try getting a scale from a certain kind of store, the guy swore it measured to the tenth in grains :evil: Lo and behold it weighed to the nearest full grain :evil:
