Things I liked: Under about ideal conditions I compared Daisy Premium Grade BB's to Avanti Ground Shot at twenty yards using a 1974 made Benjamin Model 340 smooth bore supported in a standing rest.At 2 pumps the gun shoots about 470 fps.The Daisy BB's group size was 3 1/8th". One shot hit near the point of aim,the other four were uncalled flyer's.The Avanti group measured 1" clustered about 2 1/2" below point of aim.At 3 pumps the velocity was 550 fps and the group size was 1 1/4". Centered about 1 3/4s" low.At 5 pumps velocity was 650 and the Avanti group size was 1 1/2" centering the point of aim.That's about the same accuracy it delivers with RWS 'Basic' pellets at half the cost.Run of the mill BB's from Marksman,Crosman,and Daisy won't do the job in this gun or others capable of velocities above 400 fps.I've looked at them with a 5X loupe,the Avantis are perfectly round and smooth.The others have flat spots and pits which affects their flight at higher velocities and longer ranges.
