I'm in the process of sampling different pellets for the aforementioned guns, but my budget is restricted.

Upto now, I've tried RWS Hypermax, RWS Superdome, Crosman premier pointed, Crosman premier domed, RWS Superfield, and a Bisley pellet I fail to recall.

The Crosman premier domed & RWS hypermax are the best out of this lot in terms of accuracy & penetration for my 1377.

What are your favourite pellets?

The Hypermax is alloy pellet not regular lead pellet. It's my favor too and no doubt has the best penetrating ability among your list... However I don't think it's best accurate vs lead pellets... And it's expensive...

You may want to try Gamo wadcutter which you can buy from Amazon.ca as add on items for a very good price. And it's good for the money you spend. Maybe it's abit heavy but I don't know if you mod your 1377 or not, if yes, it won't be a problem...

And usually for my 177 guns ( pistols), I like to use RWS R10, competition grade accuracy, super light weight (7gr) means higher velocity...

I piled up some previously when AGS had free shipping plus special discount when you buy 5 tins or more at one time... So it's good price tho...

RWS super domes and super points work good for me

I find that Crosman guns really like Crosman pellets. I've had excellent results with Crosman wadcutters in .177 and .22 and also Crosman hollowpoints in .22. The good thing is that their cheap as well :lol:

As other members mentioned. It's generally best to avoid those hyper velocity alloy pellets. Most of them are garbage.

I concur with Triggerhappy & Leadslinger.

Use a lot of Crosman Wadcutter for target shooting in my Crosman airguns & other brands. Find them fairly clean to use for lead pellets & nice accuracy.

Sometimes switch to lighter pellets for lower powered CO2 pistols. Like RWS Hobby & Diabolo.
