What's your favorite hunting pellet?
« on: February 04, 2012, 01:14:47 PM »
Hi fellows

Many hunters say using a heavier pellet in a higher velocity gun for hunting is much better than a lighter one.
What's your pellet you use for hunting?
Please share your experiences with us.

I was always wondering. Do people in China have things "Made In USA ?"

Plain old .177 daisy pointed field pellets will take out a coon, possum or squirrel in the top of a live oak tree with my Gamo 440 hunter no problem.

Thank you for your information. I assume this pellet is for a .177 Rifle.
Do you have also a .22 Rifle and what pellet do you use there?

My main squirrel rifle is my Air Arms S200 .22. I use mainly JSB Exact 14.3gr round nose, but Crosman Premier (same weight & style) works just as well.
 I'll say it again; for any given energy level, .22 kills much better than .177.
I reckon so

Hi Marc, mine is the Beeman rifle with the 2 barrels. One barrel is .177 and the second barrel is .22. I have not even shot the .22 barrel. I just have the reg. lead pellets in .22.
I need to get pictures up on here of all my airguns.
