Your signature suggests your SLR is in a GINB stock! So probably why its heavier than the 97.
AA Prosport.177, HW77.177, HW97K.177, HW98.177, Theoben Evolution.177, Theoben SLR98.177, AA S410.177, Alros Trailsman.22
anyone tried the falcon pellets in the hw97
Good review. I'm thinking about picking up one of these for myself
The HW97 is a cracking gun and it is lovely to shoot. Consistent as you like but I must confess that having read this thread I think I will try a few different pellets even though I dont seem to be having any issues with accuracy but I do enjoy an Experiment every now and then....

I bought a 97k earlier this year and started straight away with H&N FTT.. these were superb. I've since tried a few others and it can be inconsistent, RWS Superdomes are particulaurly bad in mine! I just stick with the FTT's now as they work...
i,m torn between falcons and hn's
I have talked to the springer experts at the club and they say that the H&N pellets are the way to go. This weekend I am picking up a synthetic stocked 97 to compliment my CS 800 stocked VMached 97. It will be interesting comparing both the standard sprung 97 against the VMach'd one and also comparing each ones performance with different pellets. I will let you know how it goes

Ok - I tried Falcons, Bisley, AA Diablo and H&N FTT pellets in both the standard and the VMach'd 97 all at a 20 yard target to cut down on wind variance.
To cut a long story short, the best results were obtained with the H&N pellets with the AA pellets running a close second place. As far as the VMach vs standard comparison, the noticable 'twang' of the standard gun is the main difference and the VMach'd gun feels tighter and smoother - accuracy wise, the 97s are just great
my stage 2tuned 97kt works great with h\nftt sub 1inch at 40metre easy hitting bottle corks at 50metre tony wall does some job on the 97 guns
