“Alloy (non lead) Air Rifle Pellets”

Written on: 19/06/2012 by Nec_V20 (9 reviews written)

As Scotty used to say to Captain Kirk, “Ye canna change the laws of physics”. The problem with alloy pellets being inaccurate is not because of their supersonic velocity, but rather that after about 10 yards or less they enter what is called the “transonic region”. To be truly supersonic an object has to move at 1339 ft/s (Mach 1.2) at sea level, to be truly subsonic the object will move at 803 ft/s (Mach 0.72) or below. When I say “truly supersonic” I mean the velocity where ALL… Read Full Review

Excuse me but I beg to differ, sir.
I use mostly lead RWS Super Field 15.9gr weight domed pellets and they are excellent, & when I need a bit of extra range/impact I use Defiant Ogive's, 16gr weight bullet-shaped lead free pellets, which also do a good job of keeping my early model HW77s' barrel clean!.
I think that i get better range with the heavier lead free pellets is because of their more aerodynamic shape, with the lead free alloy being lighter, the lead free pellet does not have the "waist" and "skirt" found on most lead pellets, which causes drag, the pellet resembles a (small) bullet with a very slight flare at the base and a very thin "rim" just at the base of the head, both of which are thin and soft enough to easily engage the rifling and are available in small (5.5mm), medium (5.52mm) and large (5.54mm) sizes to suit all barrels, I would recommend these as an excellent lead free pellet to anyone wanting the best results out of your 12ft/pnd rifle, and of course the RWS Super Fields for lead pellets, (also lead free is safer to our environment!), Peace :)
