Looking for Beeman ECO Field Target Special .22,9.57 grains in Canada. I found a place in the U.S.but $15.13 U.S. shipping to Canada......not likely! Huck

Do you need such featherweight pellets for an ultra low-powered single stroke pneumatic pistol? Or perhaps an anemic CO2 pistol? If you are looking for lightweight pellets, try RWS Hobby .22 cal. pellets at 11.9 grains. They are lead pellets. There is no real purpose in super light pellets such as .22 cal 9.57 grains -- unless it is to attempt to set a MV record of some kind. These lightweight pellets have little to commend them, especially in accuracy.

Light pellets tend to wreak havoc on springers. They do not provide enough back pressure to cushion the piston at the end of its travel and causes the piston to slam into the front of the compression tube much harder than with a normal weight lead pellet. It isn't as bad as dry firing but pretty close. For short distances my phantom loved cphp out to 25+ yards.

Typically alloy pellets are just not accurate (debatable) and harder on the components of a spring powered rifle. Not to mention price. But if you are looking at it from an ecological view alloy is your only option I guess, just look for heavy ones.

That sounds like it makes good sense!Thanks, Huck
