Brushing up on .22 since I'm expecting a new one in the near future.
Been a while. Here's a totally un-scientific look at .22 pellets out of one of my 13-XX carbines. 24" bbl, 6-24 X 42mm Banner a/o mil-dot. Shot indoors from a soft padded front rest, 12 Meters.


Premier pointed. They don't look anything like the image on the tin- more or less a skirted tear drop. Almost 1/2".


Crosman re-branding of the Metal-mag predator. Packaging sez they're Czech made.
I think these are capable of better than what's shown. They take a bit of shooting in over the fouling of the crosman factory pellets. Not bad.


My go-to pellet for testing in .22. JSB 18.1 gr Heavy. I actually yanked the one at lower right- poor bench form, as usual. Still .25" on centers...

I have to try the 16 gr version of this pellet. So far, this is the best shooting .22 pellet for me and my rifles. There's a 16 some odd grain Gamo pellet with a b.b. in the nose that comes oh-so-close to the heavy...

I had a small tin of the Crosman pointed with my 1322 Shooter's Kit. I tried about 10 of them, now going free to a good home...
