    I have been doing a lot of testing over the chrono with my new Brocock Bantam from 20yds. to 100yds. and have narrowed my pellet choice down to three pellets…Jsb 15.89, Jsb 18.13 and the H&N 17.9. All of these pellets shoot exceptionally well. Besides velocity, energy and down range performance, is there any reason to shoot one of these pellets other than the other? I dont compete, just plink and shoot varmints but I love accuracy above all else. Obviously, the 15.89 is fastest, the 18.13 carries the most energy and all three are super accurate to 100yds(drop varies of course) but I’m looking for the other tangibles…like the fact that the 15.89 tin comes with lots of deformed pellets. Is there any inherent problems with the shape or design of the H&N Sniper Magnum…stuff like that. Why choose one over the other? Im going to buy in bulk and I want to make an educated decision…I want to know things about these pellets you seasoned shooters are aware of and I am not. Thanks. Kevin

    JSB 15.89 gr, I bought 3 tins of pellet and got 4th free from PyramydAir … I had to throw more than half of them due to bad pellets (skirt bent, deformed …). Paid 3 got 4 … useable 2 … Great lolz …

    I just received 5 tins of these, and they look fantastic! Shiny, clean. Haven’t shot any yet, but pleased with the look so far!

    Have you tried crosman premier hollow points 14.3 grain?
    i have had very good luck with them being accurate and very affordable $5.84 a tin from Walmart.
    My edgun, cricket carbine and all my hatsans I have had all liked them.
    I also like jsb 18.1 .

    Yeah excellent accuracy from the 14.3 in every .22 I’ve used.  Love the 18.1s too

    My Brocock shoots the Crossman 14.3 DOMED, lights out  with the Crossman HP 14.3 a slight second and the JSB 18 very very close but twice the price.  Gave up on the JSB 15.89  because of the waste but they were the second best shooters.  My .02
