Can't say I've seen any performance difference between the regular H&N Fiel Target and their copper-washed version.

Is that true they said the copper version is bigget size due to the extra coating on the regular size lead pellet ...

Do the grooves in the pellet in your photo suggest that they would wear down the rifling as opposed to lead?
I bought a tin of H&R Greens to try out.


Nope~ alloy pellets are harder than lead (lead is just such a soft metal), but still way softer than steel.

Although airgun barrels are not as tough as the powder burner barrel, but we also have much weaker power and no heat-up with powder burning in shooting... So no need to worry about the alloy pellets will wear out the rifling sooner than lead...

Of course a better, expensive airgun will have better barrel, deeper rifling, etc...

Glad to hear that, Thank you

I forgot to ask - what is a springer? Is that different from CO2 guns like the ones I just got: the Gamo PT85 etc.?


You are right, just like the co2 capsule in your PT85 which is a different power plant style in your gun.

Springer is the air guns which uses spring as the power plant. You compress the spring in cocking the gun, pull the trigger to release it. And the spring pushes the seals to compress the air in the air tube to 'blow' it through the breech to push the pellet out... It's a super simple but effective design and can produce very high power too.

For a pistol, the HW45 is a very good example as a springer.

There are also other guns use compressed air as power. Like PCP (PP700SA, HW44), SSP (HW40, P17) and pumpers (ie. Crosman 1322/1377)...

Which of the guns you mention are the easiest to pump? pumping skills have eroded with age.

[emoji38] we have two very different 'pumping' here... Pump a pumper, like 1322/2289 etc or pump a PCP gun with the hand-pump...

You can open another topic to talk about that...

I have had a very limited exposure to anything but lead, and have heard the cons more than the good. And Daryl yes I too carried them around in my mouth as well, between the paint chips and pellets I have a hard time picking out which one I like the best.
