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):

Airgun Barrel to Barrel Pellet Shot

I have wanted to try this for a long time, a barrel to barrel shot. Thats it, simple, I needed an accurate consistent rifle with enough power to do the job....so here we go. Enjoy.
Giles

The rifle used as the pellet catcher is a far eastern budget rifle, and YES it did still shoot after I finished, I rebuilt the rifle and tried it. So it can't be all that bad. :)

Airgun Pellet Choice - Hunting or target?

Airgun retailer Tony Dobson from in Saltney runs through air rifle pellet shape, weight and some things to consider when choosing an airgun pellet type and brand.



Whether you are buying an airgun for target practice in the garden or hunting small game Tony is a great resource of knowledge, advice and stocks a good range of airguns and accessories at his store on the outskirts of Chester. It also has a dedicated airgun range.

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.

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.

Does Pellet Sorting Improve Air Rifle Accuracy?


Air Rifle Accuracy - Clean vs. Dirty Barrel


125 Yard Starling Shot - Rangefinder Mil Dot HoldOver Demonstration

Air Rifle Accuracy - Clean vs. Dirty Barrel - Slow Motion Video

There are many factors that can affect the accuracy of rifles. A dirty barrel is certainly one of the common causes. The barrel on my gun is made by Lothar Walther. LW makes barrels for many rifles, as well as airgun companies, including FX and Air Arms. My gun's barrel really bites into the pellet. This may be part of the reason the gun has such good accuracy, but this also creates a side effect of a fouling of the barrel. It only takes a patch or two to restore accuracy. In most cases, I do not use any solvent - I just use dry patches. If that doesn't remedy the problem, I'll use a few drops of Ultrabore or Googone to remove stubborn lead. If I only use dry patches, I do not need to perform the ritualistic 30-50 shots to re-lead barrel and restore the original point of impact.

It goes without saying that every gun/barrel is different. Mine likes a patch fairly often. Other guys can go thousands of pellets between cleanings. This is why I avoided stating how often one should clean. That said, enjoy. :)

Pellet Gun On Helium

On a rainy day I try firing a pellet gun using helium instead of air.

You may ask: But how do some pellet guns get bullets faster than the speed of sound? well some air molecules are going faster than the average speed, half of them in fact, and some pellet guns have a plunger that compresses the gas suddenly thus heating it and increasing the speed of the particles.

Also I didn't use hydrogen because, though it would be even faster, holding a large bag of hydrogen mixed with air seemed a bit sketchy.

My subscribers on patreon got to see this video almost a week early, if you too would like to see videos early and give suggestions for things to add (such as the animations) you can donate here:

Yes the animations was done in MS paint... I thought it was pretty good.

Air Gun Rifle Pellet Test for Drop .22 Cal Airgun best Zero Range for Shooting Hunting

This test was solely to show the drop range of the pellet between 15-50 yards. Accuracy was not the issue here. This is only offered as an instructional video to help others do the same with their airguns so that they can make a more educated selection of pellets and verify a good zero range for the selected pellet as well.
