    Who has one? Best pellet for accuracy? I'm pretty excited to get this and start shooting. Reviews I've seen and read are very encouraging. What is your take after OWNING one? Thanks.

    I do. Mine likes the JSB 15.89's,18.13's and GTO's. 

    Currently shooting the 15.89's at @15 fpe with a Vortek PG3 Kit and piston seal. Great shot cycle and Wonderful cocking action. Quite frankly, it's all the airgun I really NEED. ( Makes me question every new purchase since. 😆) Check out Steve's review on AEAC.

    Beautiful Rifle. Enjoy!!

    Hi Mike. Thanks. Besides Steve, Airgun Scientist has a comprehensive review as well. I have reached the end of my PCP experiment (4yrs), and 9 guns. 6 bulls and 3 rifles; FX Wildcat and Impact, Vulcan, R3m, R5m, Uragan, Avenger, Kratos and Benjamin.  Springer's before that. There is something very compelling about Springers that draws me back. Just grab your gun, stuff a tin in your pocket and head into the hunting grounds. Very organic. I'm confident the R9 will out shot the RWS/Diana and such from my past. I've taken raccoons with a Sheridan .177 8 pumper, so the R9 should be all the gun I need. Shot placement!!!!! Thanks again for you experienced feed back. Also: I was around here, (AGN), For a few years as Billandbanjo, maybe it was banjoandme? Anyway,  I'm back. Bill and Banjo.

    Welcome back Bill. I have had my HW95 for 6 months. Accuracy wise, mine has been awesome with all .22 pellets I have here. Both the Crosman Domed or the Hollow point 14.3 do just as well as the AirArms/JSB 15.9, JSB 14.3, and RWS Superdome 14.5. This is all at my available 25 yards. I am going to get some H and N 14.66 Field Target Trophy next. Folks have reported they produce great results too. I put an Air Rifle Headquarters Hornet tune kit and piston seal in mine and its making about 16+ FPE.

    Hi Pea-Shooter. Thanks for your input. From some vids and reviews as well as owner feed back, the Predator GTOs seem like a good bet also. I like the idea of not throwing lead all over the woods. My back yard butts up to the Mt. Hood National Forest, so my shooting range goes into the woods. Also good hunting back there. The normal fur bearing suspects as well as grouse. So shooting non-lead is something I want to give a try. Bill and Banjo.

    My HW95L is a little older than Pea-Shooter's and I also put in an ARH kit with a Vortek piston seal along with a GPL-205 lube.  Chrono results are 708 FPS for H&N FTT 14.66 pellets for 16.32 FPE.  

    FPE Formula is Pellet weight (gr) x FPS x FPS divided by 450240.

    (FPE x 450240 divided by pellet weight gr = FPS squared.)

    Assume that your H&N FTT pellets weigh 14.66 gr and the rifle is shooting at 710 feet per second.

    Example 14.66 gr x 710 FPS x 710 FPS divided by 450240 = 16.41 FPE

    450240 is 2 x velocity of gravity x 7000, (2 x 32.16 x 7000 = 450240)

    450436 is 2 x velocity of gravity x 7000, (2 x 32.174 x 7000 = 450436)

    The constant 450240 or 450436 depends on which value you use for the velocity of gravity, 32.16 ft/s/s or 32.174 ft/s/s.  There are 7000 grains in one pound.  The difference does not matter which ever constant is used for the FPE calculation.

    Bill, I'm in  North Portland. Been here since the early 90s. I've got a couple few co workers out in your neck of the woods.  If I didn't have a 5 minute commute(quite a luxury and rarity in Portland), I'd certainly be considering a move. Having MHNF in YOUR backyard is surely nice!!!

    Hey B&B. I recently acquired an R-9 (22cal) from Mike Melick of  (Flying Dragon Air Rifles). Very nice shot cycle,no boing or buzz and cocks very smoothly with a nice clean shhnick at the end of it's cocking stroke.  So far,out of the 3 H&N FTT it has liked H&N FTT 5.55. It likes the AA 18gr, JSB Straton 15.9gr, Crosman Piranha,& Gamo Rocket (that's the pellet with a BB in the nose). H&N Spitzkugel 16gr and H&H Terminator 16.36gr showed promise. I have some wadcutters and a few others on order to try when they finally show up. The rifle itself is a bit hold sensitive. Mine seems to like a firm hold pulling into the shoulder. Either hand doesn't seem to matter so I prefer using my right hand to grip and pull and moderately grip the fore stock in my left hand. Good luck and have fun looking for that MAGIC PELLET.
