Forgot to mention that my prosport (.177) seems to like crosman domed 7.9 grain best, even over AA field!!!
My main air rifle is a Webley Axsor, it is a FAC .22, it's diet is
normally Air Arms Field or Accupel, but I've been using BSA hollowpoints and they seem to be doing well. Tried Wasps, but they were all over the place, though no probs with them in my Alecto.

Here is a little list done just to see what my HW100 likes.
Make Weight fps ftlbs
Defiants 7.7 753 9.7
Airarms Diablo 8.7 747 10.7
Daystate Li 8.0 760 10.2
Thunderbolts 4.9 911 9.3
RWS S Dome 8.3 736 9.9
Marksman 8.3 761 10.6
H&N field target 8.9 743 10.9
Milbro Select 7.6 781 10.3
Accupell 8.0 768 10.4
Bisley Mag 10.6 673 10.66
Falcon 7.7 820 11.5
Wasp 7.4 798 10.47
Bisley L R 8.0 800 11.3
Bisley S F. 8.8 747 10.9
Conclusions - Falcon & Bisley Long Range seem to go well. The Thundebolts are quick, but suspect they might not be accurate due to their light weight. Acuraccy test to come next.
What is a little worrying is if only Defiants had been used at 7.7gn at 753fps giving 9.7ftlbs I would have been thinking of upping the fps to around the 820 fps mark which would have given 11.5ftlbs. It's only a 67fps rise, not large - but apply this to the Falcon pellet, same weight 7.7gn but another 67fps would be 887fps and 13.2 ftlbs - illegal.
Calm or unflinching in face of trouble, defeat, or loss. May God defend me from my friends; I can defend myself from my enemies. If you can read this then thank a teacher. If you can read this in English then thank a soldier!.
Some very usefull information in this thread and i imagine one that will grow & grow.....
I have a Theoben Rapid 12 and a Weihrauch HW 100 in .22 both really perform well with JSB Exact JUMBO .22 - 5.51 / 5.52 Field Domed Pellets 15.89 Grn they also do them for .177
Hw99s .177 12ft
likes RWS Supermags
Dislikes accupells and matchpells
1984 Weihrauch HW77 Mk1, .177 with Hawke 6-12 x 50 Nite eye
JSB Exact 8.44 grains
Consistantly within the 25mm centre ring of target at 50m, pellet on pellet at 35m (when there is no wind!)
Is there going to be a dedicated website with all this data collated and placed in some easy to read format as promised? Has it already been done? This thread is now 4 years old, there is tons of data
In the interest of general info I'll throw this in.
I put just ONE of the following through my HW100 and these are the Combro results. I know these results can't be relied on with just one pellet and I didn't clean the barrel between shots either. It is what it is but I will do it again properly to find the most accurate and I will clean the barrel.
These results are quite alarming and also bewildering.
These are all .22
AA Fields 16gns 579 fps 11.9 flbs
Defiant (med) 14gns 622 12.04
RWS Superdomes 14.5gns 601 11.65
RWS Super H point 14.2gns 595 11.18
Falcon Accuracy Plus 13.4gns 630 11.81
Bisley Superfield 15.1gns 604 12.23
Webley Lazadome 15.9gns 576 11.74
Webley Accupell 14.3gns 608 11.75
Weihrauch F+T Special 15gns 593 11.73
Crossman Premier 14.3gns 604 11.50
JSP Exact 15.89gns 572 11.57
Lets hope the fuzz don't use Bisley Superdomes to check HW100's!
......I mean Superfields!
I certainly would be carefull what pellet to use in that gun! I mainly use Webley Accupells in my Webley Axsor FAC. It loves them.
