Reply To: Best velocity for .25
I set mine at 880 fps and do quite well in shot count and accuracy with the JSB 25 gr pellets.
If power is your thing, then 980 fps will give you more zip, but 40+ fpe is plenty for me to shoot anything close enough for me to hit with any regularity. Plus, that 100 fps difference equates to quite a difference in shot count. For me it was an additional two magazines before going off the regulator. Faced with a 70 mile round trip for air fills I certainly want to make every shot as efficient as possible.
