Nice grouping. Are you going to stay with the bulk co2 setup?
I also just acquired a "New to me Hammerli 850" Love it !!! Image
I've been using the 2xCo2 Adapter in it. Which is fine...I have lots and lots of 12g carts to use up.
But wouldn't mind just saving them for my pistols and my daughters Crosman 1077.

So lately I've been pondering about Alice and the rabbit hole..HPA !?!
And the 13ci Ninja HPA tank mod... Image
Once you start.......

I have 4 of the 88/90g CO2 cartridges, but will shoot mostly the 9oz Paintball bottle.

I am thinking I will be getting over 500 shots. A fill is $5 cash at the local paintball store, and I have also bought an adapter to fill from my 20lb liquid CO2 tank... A fill at home should cost me about $1.25.

No plans to take this gun HPA, If I go HPA, I will likely get a .177 already as a PCP.

Is yours a .22?

I can tell you for me:
Stoeger X-sport, Crosman Hollowpoint and Ultra domed don't work very well for me interms of grouping or loading into the breach.

H&N Excite Hammer and JSB Jumbo Express seem to work well.

It's a.22
I've try a few different pellets and went back to my JSB Exact Jumbo's.
Although the Crosman LDP22 Premier Domed seem okay...I still like the JSB the best.
Since I'm getting set up for HPA for the Gauntlet. I figured making the 850 into HPA
would be my next move.

I didn't have any 22 pellets before I got this rifle.

Can you let me know which ones didn't work for you so I won't need to waste money trying them?

Thanks
Peter

Every rifle's gonna be different.
I like the JSB Exact Jumbo and Crosman LDP22 Premier Domed.
I tired some N&H Baracuda could not get them to work for me.
And a few tins of RWS Hobby 5.5Mm mostly for my break barrels an pistols.

What are you using?

Hi.

I have a 177 Hammerli 850 that I converted to HPA and I loved it before the conversion and after the conversion it is even better.
The accuracy is incredible and the consistency is great .
