As a general guideline heavier is better for long range if your gun has the power to get them to a decent velocity. They'll hold their energy and velocity longer. If you have a chronograph you can use the Hawke Chair gun app to check which pellet will have the most velocity at 60 yards. Kinda neat to look at the trajectory and velocity down range.

For saving some money and easier to get, I used some (pretty some... Maybe about 10 to 15 tins something and 2 'milk cartoon' packs, 177 for my replicas then 22 for my 2240 and 1322... ) Crosman pellets for some time and still have a few remained... But at last I found out It's worthless to do so and started buying better pellets (JSBs, H&Ns, RWS) from online...

I found only my Crosman guns (2240, 1322) can have acceptable result when using Crosman pellets, and they are not good pellets for all my other guns... Don't ever think about you can stack pellets at target when using Crosman pellets...

And when I found Grizzly, Gamo pellets, Crosman pellets even lost the good price advantages... I don't think I will buy Crosman pellets again...

If buying cheap pellets, you might want to wash them
to get rid of the flecks of lead that adorn them, inside and out.
Si Pittaway did a pretty good video on washing pellets.
