I just received an izhy and love it. Great gun but I'm having trouble loading it and wonder if I'm bending the delicate pellet shirt (good excuse when I miss :wink:). The barrel is rifled and probably choked right to the loading chamber. Even when the pellet is lined up correctly the front has to be forced in and is often misaligned to start with.
I'm using H&N match pistol pellets that say 4.5 mm on the tin.
I thought of drilling a slight bevel at the chamber opening but that shouldn't be necessary on a new expensive pistol.
Does anyone else have this problem and is there loading method that would make it easier?

The Izzy is an easy-to-load air pistol. Make sure that when you cock it that the cocking arm is swung and pushed forward as far as it will go. The pellet loading area should open up and the pellet should push in easily. The bore is not "extra choked". Do not drill anything.

Can you post a picture of what is giving you problems?

I may have found the problem. Of the five different brands of wadcutter pellets I have only the H&N and the RWS pellets give me that issue. Perhaps they're intentionally made a fraction larger for a tighter fit and better accuracy. Btw all my non wadcutter pellets are easy to load. I'll just have to learn line to them up better.
Practise practise practise.

There are quite a few sizes of pellet heads, ranging from about 4.47mm up to 4.54mm. Even 0.01mm can make a lot of difference in a given barrel in terms of how well the airgun 'likes' the pellet. I've found the 4.52mm Hobby to be almost too hard to press into place without taking good care on my old Izzy, but I got used to it. The Hobby is well known among competitive shooters as being among the largest wadcutters - a topic which often comes up on the US-based targettalk forum as people are always asking about cheaper pellets for training.

I liked the Diabolo Basic (green tin lid) better as they shot well and loaded very neatly. Cheap, too. I probably put about 50,000 of those through mine, shooting more expensive things like H&N Finale Match, Pardini, or JSB SCHaK for competitions or scoring sessions at home. Gave the pistol to my little brother earlier this year and he's having a blast with it for plinking. Doubt he'll take up serious target shooting at 45, but you never know, had to try and improve his interest in airgunning. It's an addiction partly fed by our habit of introducing it to others... Anyway, give a couple of different match pellets a try, shop specifically for those with 4.5mm heads not bigger. I'd bet they work just fine for yours.

After finished alternating the grip and found an extra large size hard case for my Izzy, finally I have more time to put on with this great gun!!

I use RWS R10 basically on my Izzy, before I run out of my inventory, I don't think I will use other pellet and re zero the sights... Although I found the Izzy is actually not picky on pellets and within 10 meters, it just can hit anything you aim except you made serious mistake....

Loading the pellet fells a bit tight but not very tight and not an issue at all. I like the tight feel and it makes me sure about the pellet sits well in the breech opening...

And this gun just shoots incredible accurate and so easy to shoot accurately! Plus it do have plenty of power and no wonder a good choice for plinking too ~ ;) I like this purpose too!

Great to be able to buy a gun that makes You look like a Great Shooter,
