    I suppose this is a subjective question but................any ideas what is the most popular .177 pellet for field target? I'm new to air gunning so when I go in the shop for pellets the guy in the shop sez what brand do you want I ain't got a clue! so I just thought I'd ask whats popular.

    Will be JSB in either 4.51 /.52/.53 which ever groups best in your rifle
    webley mosqutios or crossman premier 7.9 grain

    Thanks Guys suppose when I can reliably hit the target it's time to do a bit of trial and error then.:shot:

    It's trial and error to start with because you need a good group to choose a good pellet, but you if you can't group you don't know if it's the pellet or you. Best to have a good shot around and they will tell you.

    I think batches is the key... if you get a good tin then buy a load of the same batch. For a start it will save you on any price increases further down the road, and you might get a discount for buying in 10's of tins...
