    I’ve just recently purchased a benjamin discovery .22. I will mainly be using it for small game hunting. I hope to shoot it for the first time this weekend. Pellets I currently have are the discovery 14.3 gr hollow points and JSB diabolo exact jumbo heavy 18.13 gr. Does anyone have suggestions of other pellets I should try that might work well for small game? Thanks.

    My Disco shoots the JSB 15.89 gr domes best of all the pellets I’ve tried. I really wanted it to like the JSB 18 gr domes, but it didn’t. Crosman Premier Brown Box 14.3 gr shoot pretty well, as do H&N FTTs. Mine seems happiest in the sub 18 gr range. I have some hollow points and others I am planning to try, just haven’t gotten to them yet. I did try H&N Rabbits and JSB monsters (both over 20 grains in weight), but my gun didn’t like either.

    My friends and myself used 18.1’s  They shoot with more accuracy than the Crosman 14.3’s or the Polymags. That goes for 4 stock gums, we all shoot at or around 800 fps. The best shooting gun has a 3 screw trigger mod, and double barrel bands. It shoots consistant nickle groups at 100 feet.

    The best pellet for hunting is the one that is most accurate in your particular gun.  I have found that JSB makes good stuff.  Also give H&N a try.

    Don’t Laugh but El-Gamo Hunter’s 15.4gr/1g, Must wash twice to get $#!T off. Much better than You think in Disco .22. Even better if You Weigh/Seporate.  All other El-Gamo Pellets $uck Big Time. Try “Clean” Hunters before You Laugh is all I can say. There Cheap at Wally-World in .22 the  250 count tin, less than $5 free Delevery to Your WW, if They don’t Stock Them…..Franky (21grains)

    21 grains sweet find, what do you use to wash them? how do you prepare them after washing so that they do not corrode?
    I will be giving these a go in my NPXL 1100 for that price!

    I am a firm believer in the JSB pellets and my Disco Double shoots the 15.89 the best.  However I do feed it the Jumbo Heavy’s 18.13 grain and just have to adjust my POI slightly.  The Disco also devours the lighter Crosman 14.3 and Benjamin with a few flyers and change of POI. 
    The other pellet I use a lot in all of my 22 cal rifles are the Accu Pells from AoA.  Plenty cheap when bought in volume and good to break a rifle in or play with on the Chronograph or for the Grand Kids shooting the Animal Crackers on a popsicle sticks.
    Serious hunting go with what your rifle likes best of course.  The only pellets that I could not make work were the Gamo’s but perhaps I did not try the 15.4 with the wash and rinse cycle.  Most of the Gamo Pellets I purchased were damaged and became lead for fishing weights. Maybe just the batch I received were mishandled.
