Item Code: JSB-1000019 [PY-P-690]
|Suggested for||Small game hunting/plinking|
|Head Size||5.52 mm|
Things I liked: JSB quality is good, the accuracy from my air rifles proves that. The fit Is the same every time, from what I can tell.
Things I would have changed: I wouldn't change anything about the product. You get what you pay for.
What others should know: JSB is well known, give them a try if you haven't already.
Things I liked: The tins have top and bottom foam inserts. I like that. The uniformity of these pellets is remarkable. These fit and group very well in my Hatsan 155 Torpedo Vortex .22 caliber. I've been getting 1" groups at 35 yards on a Brand New rifle. I'm somewhat shocked that the accuracy should be so good with a brand new barrel, but it speaks well for JSB and Hatsan. It should only improve. No fly-aways. All misses from the bulls-eye were my fault. Great pellet!
Things I would have changed: This needs to have a SCREW ON LID!
What others should know: I always add two or three drops of Ballistol to each tin, as a barrel lubricant. I've found that it keeps the pellets polished nicely and I do not experience any Deiseling from doing so.
Things I liked: Both the precise shape (very few defects) combined with the slightly harder than average lead makes these pellets quite precise. I saw a substantial increase in accuracy compared to to the cheap Walmart premier pellets. Also, the fact that they are heavier can increase accuracy also. Often times people want high velocity pellets but this comes at to the cost of both short range accuracy and especially long range accuracy. Slower moving pallets with more inertia maintain much more of their downrange energy.
Things I would have changed: Can't think of anything
What others should know: I'm happy these pellets or NOT hollow points. From what I have seen, hollow points don't actually expand due to the relatively modest energy associated with air guns and I worry if the divot in the tip of the pallet affects aerodynamics.
Has anyone tried these pellets in an Umarex Octane?
I have. But because my Octane is so bad (can't be "Held") that pellet comp's (9) were meaningless. Ironically, the "Fuel" .17 and .22 are very good.
Will these JSB Jumbo Heavy .22 Cal/18.13 Grain Pellets Work in the Latest & Largest Girandoni .22 Air Rifle. Some Jumbo Pellets Will Not?
Is this U.S. Made
