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.

The Panasonic camera (DMC-FZ150) I used to film this can be purchased here:


The Camera Mount I used to record through the scope can be found here:


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:

Air Rifle Ratting 139!!!! down in two hours.

THIS PLACE IS INSAIN! We were able to shoot even more than last time. (that was only 2 weeks before this session)
Using the devastatingly accurate Air Arms S510 we took out a large number of sizeable scaly tails.
A big thanks to Premire Pest Services for allowing me to come along and film.

NEW TEAM FOXER SHOP!!! For kit, gifts all at fantastic prices delivered to you by Amazon


BUY THE SAME KIT:-

One little thing people may be able to help my with is upgrading some of my recording equipment. I'm looking to get a semi pro camcorder. but at a strong £1500 they don't come cheap. If you could spare even £1/$1 it would help massively. You can do that here:-


If you enjoyed this video and haven't seen the first video please have a look at that here:-



I'll be back out Foxing this week so I'll hopefully remember to film some of those for you.

I also want to say a big thanks to MGR Guns for continued support. Please do give them a call for prices on kit you've seen that you may be after including NV and Thermal. They have a great selection of new and used guns, from rifles to shotguns.:-


I would also love it to meet any fans of the channel at the shooting show on Saturday the 18th of Feb. Hopefully I'll see you there.
Take care, stay safe and happy shooting. RF.

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.

.22 Cal. Air Rifle Pellet SHOTGUN ROUND - "The Swarm"

We have gotten many requests to (again) shoot air rifle pellets out of a shotgun. Having a swarm of 20 pellets flying at 1200 feet per second is a pretty scary thought. These might be a good compromise between bird shot and buckshot. The recoil is LESS than bird shot and the over penetration is less than buckshot.
