Spiraling Pellets - Nemesis of Air Rifle Accuracy [Contains Hunting]

You know what drives me nuts? Wobbly pellets! Well, more than that actually drives me nuts, but for this video, we'll just stick to pellets. I continue my efforts to understand (and hopefully minimize) the causes behind this spiraling annoyance.

The slow-motion camera I use to film the shots through the scope is the Casio EX-FC150. That camera is no longer made, but you can buy its successor (which is actually a better camera than the one I use) here:

PELLET SEATING - boost performance of .177 & .22 air rifles?

Will pellet seating boost the power of your airgun, or make your air gun more accurate? With a Beeman PellSeat tool and a DIY pellet seater made from a nut, bolt and BB, Nigel Allen undertakes hours of testing with four brands of pellet – each in .177 and .22 – and two break-barrel springer rifles in an attempt to see if a pellet seater is better for inserting your ammo into the breech than… well, a thumb!

Diabolo pellets tested are: Webley AccuPell, RWS Hobby, Rangemaster Kaiser and Webley VMX – each in .177 and .22.

Power readings are taken via a Combro Cb-625 speed meter to assess muzzle energy with and without the pellets seated, and accuracy is checked at 25 yards with seated pellets and those pressed in by just a thumb!

The rifles used are a .22 calibre Webley VMX OS Quantum and .177 Feinwerkbau 124 Sport. It’s a lot of shooting… and as the results start to unfold throughout this short film, they may even raise a few eyebrows.

If you’ve experimented with pellet seating, post a comment to let AirgunTV viewers know your findings. I might try this slick pellet seating tool, in the future, which I’ve found for sale on Amazon (associate links):

Pellet Rifle DIESELING - Good, Bad or Ugly?

We demonstrate what dieseling is, and the risks to your pellet rifle by doing it. Most people use a light oil or some other flammable liquid to do it but we use mentholatum ointment (aka VICKS), which has a base of petroleum jelly (Vaseline). It's actually quite flammable! Does dieseling REALLY make your air rifle shoot faster?

Rather than use a chrono, I thought it would be more interesting to actually sync up the shots so one can see for themselves. Otherwise, people would be disputing my findings by saying my chronograph was broken, etc. Remember, high speed cameras don't lie! Chronographs sometimes do show faulty readings.

Filming this was difficult because I wanted to show the muzzle of the air rifle in the tiny frame of the 1200 fps mode of my camera and it was hard to hold it in that position and concentrate on aiming at the same time.

Does Pellet Sorting Improve Air Rifle Accuracy?

Part of the Pellet Sorter:

The Device was created by Raymond Pratt. Ray is a frequent poster on the Airgun Yellow forum. He approached me many months ago, asking if I would like to have a go with this thing. My obsession with accuracy guaranteed that I would say yes. And now, having tested and used this device, my next goal will be to convince Ray to sell it to me. :) Obviously, more tests are needed, but I am convinced that sorting pellets by their head size has enough potential that I am ready to put my money where my mouth is. I have NO IDEA if Ray intends to offer these or sale. If he ever does, I will add a link to this description.

.177 or .22 pellet air rifle ? Which has best penetration power ?

Hello friends. I always want to show the live experiment and I do it. Today I am going to test the power of two different rifles. One is calibrated with .22 which powered up to 800 fps and another is calibrated with .177 which is powered above 950 fps .both air rifles are indian made .so we just test it for to see , which has the best penetration power. I am going to test on few wooden planks . And the thickness of the plank is about 7 mm. The pellets I am using for .22 is 14.2 grain and for .177 is 8.7 grain . Both the pellets are round head.so let's see which rifle can penetrate more planks.

Washing and lubing your pellets (As requested by our subscribers)

Hi Subscribers,

We have had requests to show how we wash and lube our pellets, so here is a tutorial on how to do this procedure.

The pellets we used are Air Arms Field in .177 calibre.

Please make sure that you check your air rifles power after this procedure as it may well add a half to one foot pound of energy to your rifle.

Its a good idea to have house hold items just used for washing and lubing pellets and not to use in conjunction with food.

If you are going to use the items again for food, please ensure you thoroughly clean them after use so there is no lead contamination left.

Mine are bought for washing pellets purpose only,but still clean them!

I hope you enjoy the video

Regards
