I'm with Bob_O.  I prefer slugs mostly. I've wanted more velocity for that one reason. 

Pellets @ 950 FPS in my .25 works fine for me. 

I've found that in my stock .25 cal. for HP slugs to preform properly down range (beyond 80 yards) that I just need more velocity. 

They shoot extremely accurate. Just don't expand with a violent energy dumping "stop". 

By "stop" I mean the massive expansion that only comes from an "instant velocity slow down" that takes place in approximately the first 1/2" of penetration on a small pest.   

A lighter thinner .22 cal. is far easier to get to expand with that violent energy dumping "stop", less mass involved. 

That's why I want more velocity anyway…………
