I feel that if any CO2 pistol has a rifled barrel, then lead pellets only is the best policy. If you want to shoot BBs, get a smooth bore BB gun
My gun fires powerfully on single action, but it fires weakly on double action. I bought it for the double action because I hate a long hard single action trigger pull. I've tried H&N field trophy pellets and Crosman hi-speed pellets, with the same result. Do I have a lemon, or do I need to try different pellets, or did I get what I paid for?
Is the Iceman plastic or metal (like the Beeman P17)?
BBs AND Pellets Rifled barrel, but it shoots BBs, doesn't that destroy the rifling?
Shooting Steel BBs in this rifled barrel will damage it and cause a loss of accuracy with lead pellets over time. Not recommended - buy a dedicated Steel BB shooter for Steel BBs.
Shoot Smart Shot BBs
If you like the Idea of shooting "BB's" w/ your Gun, I suggest you try .177 cal,. Lead Balls from H&N, in either Graphiteized Black, or Copper Coated(Gamo produces a "Lead Ball" ammo, but you'll be dissapointed w/ it's accuracy especially in a short barrelled gun like the 4" "Iceman",,,,If you still prefer to use regular BB's, make sure that they're coated, and not just plain "Steel". Cheer's Andy.
They can damage the rifling over time.
