    Which 22 pellets for accuracy

    Do different styles and weights of pellets affect the accuracy greatly. What pellets are most popular for target shooting?

    Jsb exact heavy is probably the most common long range pellet in .22. Most guns can throw them at 880+fps and they give good accuracy with decent bc.

    Evanix Blizzard .357, 220 fpe silhouette bullpup - Evanix Sniper X2 .45 at 270 fpe - Drozd Blackbird HPA - 1200 rpm full auto fun gun / meat grinder at 240 fpe/s - etc.

    depends

    Whilst quality pellets will normally shoot better than cheapo ones , it depends on each guns barrels , go on e bay and buy plenty of different pellet tester kits ( you get either 25 or 50 of each make) your gun what ever it is will usually have a pellet it prefers/shoots really well with and the difference between a well suited make and poorly suited pellet/ make can make a huge difference to accuracy. Buy a load of tester packs and find the best one for your gun.

    I'd also give the new 33.96 grain JSB Beast a go if your gun can push them to decent speed. There have been some rather promising reports of that pellet. The best .22 100M groups I've seen so far have been shot with JSB Heavies.
