“125sniper”I see what you mean John  . It might no be a great idea to go out a buy bulk after a few pellet test fires lol .  I like to shoot indoor 10 meter  air pistol and  a lot of times I don’t really care how accurate they are  for practicing told and release  only that they get close . A lot of times if you see pellets on sale  and having  never tried them before  it would be nice to try a few  before you buy  even 250  of them . I’m not saying  to go by the pellets as a final  decision maker  but maybe as a  step in considering if you want to get a 250 tin or not  and like you said there is no guarantee they will be the same  as the ones you buy  but just as a  start  with out spending a lot. Or maybe just  as a collector  of pellets like hard to find older pellets you always wanted  to have a few of  . But I would think a pellet like the H&N Field Target .22 Cal, 16.36 g would be close enough  from batch to batch  to give you a idea  if they might work for you . Oh well it was just a though .


I may have been a bit harsh with my comment, but I’m a reality kind of guy. In the realm of reality though an unused tin or two of pellets won’t go unused forever. There will always be a new gun to test and it’s always good to have as many different pellets on hand to do that with. Even going against my own advise and more to your point even an older batch will give you an idea of what type/brand of pellet your gun might like over another. Don’t give up with the idea just try to refine it to a satisfactory conclusion.
