Hey folks ,

Shooting in my basement right now because that’s all I got. Going to run every pellet I can through my guns and find the best matches :) I’m only dealing with a little over 6yards and shooting at small paper targets. Here is a pic of what I have so far.

Notes: the copper H&N really don’t like fitting into the barrel on my stock CR600W. Have to jam the heck out of the bolt. I’ve put them aside until I drill the barrel a little.

H&N are good pellets, but generally JSB do better/best in most rifles - certainly in my Artemis they are the best. So get some JSB Exact in a weight appropriate to your CR600 power level. In my non-PAL Artemis PCP, I found the 15gr JSBs to be the best, outperforming the RS that are good in my springers. So, get yourself some JSB.

Yes- JSB's. They are also sold by head size. 4.49mm, 4.50mm, 4.51mm, 4.52mm, 4.53mm.
They also come in different weights. My HW97 prefers both 4.51mm and 4.52mm 8.44gr. Cometa Match
over the 7.9gr.
Doing my part, both of these head sized Cometa JSB's will make 5 shot, 20 yard groups that a .22cal. pellet
will not fall through the hole. That is a high powered HW97 at that, running 14.5fpe.
The Cometa pellets shoot better than the standard Exacts.
One of those sizes will likely shoot the very best in your rifles.

At 6 yards indoors, I would go with a wadcutter, like an RWS Hobby. Much cheaper and one hole is one hole. The wadcutters also cut a nice round hole in paper. CAF store sells the .22 Hobby pellets for 11.50 a tin.

As stated, the best pellets will probably be the JSB line of pellets, like they are in most guns. They are more expensive than a lot of pellets. I think JSB sells some decent wadcutters that would be cheaper than the 14.3, 15.9 and 18.1 line of domed pellets. If you are moving to longer distances outdoors, then the domed would be the way to go.

I avoid anything pointed or hollow point for paper punching and for accuracy. Never had any luck with them.

Drill the barrel !?!? :shock: Please, step back from the bench and put the drill down...

Seriously, at 6 yards. Pretty much anything ought to shoot good
If you want variety, scoot over to Ebay and order one of each...

Thanks dudes. Looks like I’ll be getting some Jsbs and hobby wadcutters!

As for only shooting at 6 yards, that’s just for now. I’ll be moving to a new place with over 20 acres :wink: doing the best with what I’ve got until then.

Thanks again!

The "only 6 yards" was not met in a derogatory way.
- Just that you probably won't see much different between pellets until you reach the 15-20 yards line

Good luck with you move! Having a big backyard certainly is nice!

SRY - I did not notice you were shooting .22 cal.
I found the H&N's in .22 shoot every bit as good as JSB's in that calibre,
from the rifles and handguns I have.
Best for me, are the 19.09gr. Barracuda Hunter Extremes and 21.3gr. match
round nose even from my handguns.
Too, the Crossman HP's in 14.43gr. also shot well in most of them, at least to 15 yards.
I've never tried the pointed anything, let alone the Crossman pellets.

I think he was talking about reaming out the loading area of the barrel a bit. I found this helped with these barrels. H&N are not really very workable, nor are wadcutters until you grind out that loading area a little. They tend to catch and get jammed with the mag too. Crosman and jsb domed pellets do fine.

Wes

Thanks Wes ! I’ll grab some pellets from you with my next order. Regarding reaming the barrel entry, I’m still considering doing this. I’d like things to feel a little more smooth when charging. Is it just a matter of removing a slight bit of metal with a Dremel type cone bit? Will the the o-ring that sits at the barrel loading side still fit or maybe need to be changed?

My Cr600w loved one of the lead free h&n’s, dime sized at 25m.

If all you want to do is put s slight chamfer on your chamber, you might want to try something like this

Might sound crazy, but the Daisy precision wadcutters run great all in all of mine. One holers on anything that's capable of it and much better than the RWS and Crosman that I tried. I personally stay away from the Crosman pointed, I haven't tried their wads in a while though.
