I bought the KTE kit, so I have my small tin of pointed pellet. It's ok, actually in my .177 pellet air guns, I like to use the Crosman Pointed very well.

Locally, from CT, I bought one can of Hollowpoint. So far so good, obviously it's not able to penetrate as well as the pointed. And I didn't find it as said "can break out while hitting hard object to due serious damages" (of course in this point, Crosman suggested the Piranha). But at least it's accurate enough to hit coke can 60 feet away.

What I really want to try and maybe stick to would be the Ultra Magnum Domed. Said it will be the most accuracy one with longest fly destance and also have great hitting power.

And for the Destroyer, Piranha, there are not many good reviews, and I think I would rather save my money...

And the luxury Gold Tip? Anyone tried it? I heard the tip will be fallen from the pellet before you pick it out form the can...

Any other .22 pellets from other brands is your favor? I want to try some H&N (not H&M clothing right? my wife bought a lot already), Gamo etc, as they have good reputations. But according to my 1322, limited by the shooting environment, I find 5 to 7 pumps will be just what I need. So I don't want to use the heavy pellets, and Crosman lead pellets looks are the lightest lead pellets with 14.3 grains. And usually the H&N, Gamo etc has the weight around 16 to 18 gr or heavier... So, I am not sure if using those pricey pellets will be just a waste in money...

RWS Hobby 11 grains pellets (wadcutters) are good too.

Using JSB heavy in my 2240. Maybe not the cheapest, but as they are used in a number of guns they usually brought in bulks and there is not much point to keep some other pellets just for crosman pistols...

I think the Pirahna pellets have manufacturing issues. I have two tins from two different lots and the heads seem oversize on both of them. Extremely difficult to load them in almost any gun I own.

When it comes to cheap pellets, I've had surprising success with Daisy pointed.

I think because the lead they use is so soft that the skirt blows out nicely to engage the rifling.

Every gun is different though and you have to try a variety of pellets to see what it likes.
JSB is where I usually start.

So, how you see the gun likes which pellet? more accurate than using other pellets? something like that?!

And to be sure it requires shooting paper targets (even if you didn't usually do this). The groups on a paper is the only unbiased thing in measuring accuracy (Unless the groups are of 3 shots and carefully selected :lol: ).

I used RSW before for my .177. But afterwards foubd it not well fit for the UX rotary mags and then find Crosman fits better. Then I changed to use Crosman and find it's so far so good and I get find it every where, never have out of stock issues... But I now know why some ppl like to wash the C pellets before use,lol, it's more easily get your finger tip black than other pellets...

I have a can of H&N pointed incoming~ will try it out!

Yup~ shooting paper target can bring you different kind of fun! But for testing pellets, I think you will need a table, hand rest etc to prevent other factors to affect the result...

I printed out a paper and shot some shots this morning. Obviously the gun is good, pellets are good, but the 2.5 inch grouping of 10 shots from 10 meter far were all caused by my bad aiming eye and the waving body... if with table and rest, it should be with less than 1 inch I think...

Don't blame yourself - the result indeed is very close to what a 2240 (1322) usually can do.
Looks like the 2240 is just not heavy enough relative to it's recoil (yes, it does have recoil in comparison to .177 pistols) and that is the case. To achieve better groups it probably requires muzzle brake or something to increase weight.

When compares to my other pellet pistols, actually I nearly feel no recoil on the 1322, on my very first shot on this gun, this really surprised me!!

I am ordering a 14" barrel and a muzzle brake, hopefully as you said, the added weight can further lower down the recoil to make it a better accurate gun!
