AIRGUN AMMO


Not all pellets are created equal. High quality pellets will enhance the accuracy of a mediocre gun, while a low quality pellet will downgrade its performance. These aren’t your daddy’s airgun pel- lets. Today, the airgunner can choose from lead or lead-free, from wadcutter to domed or polymer-tipped. The wadcutter design is a good choice for practice. Opt for a tipped, lightweight, high velocity round when reaching out to touch furred and feathered varmints. Hyper-velocity pellets like the PBA (Performance Ballistic Ammo) Armor Impact, Bullet, Raptor and Rocket projectiles and the RWS Hyper Velocity line allow airgunners to extract the utmost from their guns with better terminal performance than ever before. The .177- and .22-caliber ammunition is still the most common projectile, it can be found in hardware stores, sporting goods stores and depart- ment stores around the country. To feed the guns of the less popular calibers, a hunter should try several different styles of ammuni- tion, pick one that performs and buy a lifetime supply.
