General Comments
I got the Webley Xocet standard Air Rifle yesterday from country man of derby for 145, I went in for the cometa 300 which was 119 but after holding it, it felt really cheep then I picked up the xocet and you can see just how well made it is. It's got a nice weight which helps with the accuracy. I am only 14 and while zeroing the scope I could allready get groups the size of a penny at 20metres with a nikko mountmaster 3-9*40 scope. Im wondering how you hold the gun when you are zeroing the gun, does anyone know the best way. I havn't shot anything yet but im sure its up to the job. If anyone has any info on hunting ranges and the best pellet to use I would be very greatfull.

I find the best way to hold the exocet is with a light grip i.e. tight enough to keep the rifle steady but loose enough to let it recoil freely upon firing as is the case with most springers.
<br>i find webley lasadomes one of the best pellets for the exocet they are also ideal for hunting.
<br>As for distances so long as you can hit a 3/4inch target at the distance you plan to shoot every time any distance is fine upto 40yards max there will be a site somewhere that shows you the kill zones on particular quarry i pressume you will be hunting rabbits in which case the kill zone is in the area between the eye and bottom of the ear although like i said i recommend you do a search and learn exactly where the kill zone is on your intended quarry

carlronchi....so you thought the Cometa felt cheap compared with the Webley.
<br>Well, seeing as there's a forty quid price differential I'm not surprised. (J S Ramsbottom's prices.)
<br>
<br>I can assure you that the Cometa's performance matches the Webley. Longevity? Only time will tell.

Steve - I find that H&N Field and Target Trophy pellets are excellent with the Xocet. Good accuracy, excellent penetration and damage. They feel slightly oily (?), so I'm sure they must be doing something benficial for your rifle, whilst destroying your targets! You should be able to pick them up for approx £6 for 500. Happy hunting :-)
