    Hi all

    Finally managed to pick up my dominator last week and looking forward to some range time, the question I have is which pellets do the dominators like? I know this is a bit of a general question but hopefully there may be a patern develops with responses to save me a bit time getting dialed in with the rifle.

    Cheers:)

    Anything JSB made should go well. I'd pick a few things out, and if they run well, buy a batch... my theory is that batch is way more important than make or head size.

    See how that goes :)

    JSB's are always a good place to start but you will have to try a few different die numbers, JSB produce their dies from one drawing but they are partly hand made which leads to significant differences between dies. In effect you are getting totally different pellets with different dies, some have more domed heads, different skirts, different head, different lengths....you need to find the one that suits your barrel.

    I use die 30 in my Walthers

    Pete, do all your Walthers have the same type of barrel now? I forget...
