I am finishing up my QB78 convert to regulated hpa, it will be a PAL rifle, planning to make it - somehow - for long range and Field shooting.
New to rifles, so I limited the expense to QB with diy upgrades, so this what I have and will be using for a while, this forum is a great help and I am hoping to make it work.
For now using 18 grain pellets for my build/testing. Also got myself a aliexpress 10-40x50 scope what is - not bad at all for now.
Missing a recommendation for heavier pellets to try.

I have been doing archery competition shooting for many years, FITA and Field, long ranges out to 90 meters. Along my learning curve I came up to the tip of the hill equipment in-and-outs, tons of money spent to get to a sponsored level and drawers full with medals.
My best scores were with small profile but heaviest FOC (front of center) arrows shot from a mid-high speed bows, 280 fps vs highspeed 330 fps.
Expecting similarities with a pellet projectiles as well

Morning Attila
I find that every QB barrel will decide that for you but I always had good luck with a 5.52 sized pellet under high pressure
try these!

Polymags have always shot well in all my QB's, I have a lot of different .22's so I will package up 25 of each brand I have and label them for you

Expect another package bud

Can't go wrong with JSB Exacts.... either the 14.3 gr., 15.9 gr. or the 18.1 gr....

I just don't know what we would do if JSB went out of business.
