    I'm excited about the new JSB .020 cal. pellet that's coming out, hopefully it will fill the void created by the extinct CP .020's.  In anticipation of the new JSB's I got out my Rapid 12 .020 and some of my horded CP's, I haven't shot it in weeks, this was the first five shots at 25yd benched but no rear bag, just rested on my hand.  I've shot many sub half inch 50yd. groups with these pellets, I hope the new JSB's will be even better!!!

    What weight are they? We've had 13.73grain 0.20 JSB exact for years where I live. They're brilliant – better than pretty much anything else in that caliber, as JSB usually is 😄

    Is it those you're talking about that were previously unavailable where you are, or a newer one? 

     

    P.s. 0.20 is and awesome caliber 🎉

    CP .020,s are 14.3gr, same as the .CP .22's.  I also use the JSB 13.73's but tight in mag. and they  just don't shoot as as good in my gun.  I had these for years, not sure when they were discontinued.

    Thats good news. It was really sad when crosman stopoed making .20 pellets.

    I have a RWS 48 and a Talon SS in .20. The 48 shot the crosmans really good. Good show for JSB to invest in the new pellets.

    That's good news more choices for our .20 guns. I recently shot the best 5 shot 50 yard group with my RAW .20. It measured 1/4" edge to edge.

    Well my "orphan with no heritage,,,marketing product" just outshot all the traditional .177 rifles in my class yesterday at out local FT club. Not to shabby for the first time shooting FT with a .20! Perhaps Dr Beeman knew something when he came up with this orphan with no heritage marketing product!

    The best kept secret in 20 ft/lb field target today. KDog's results are the norm not the exception. Great shooting Keith!

    Thankyou Jim…I just bought a used .20 barrel for my RAW TM 1000….I'm hopeing it shoots as good as my HM 1000. We shall soon see. I do love the ease of loading the bigger .20 pellets compared to the .177.

    I’m torn between going with a .20 or .22 cal for my target action when the time comes.  If the JSB Heavy pellet materializes in .20, I may go that route.  Any idea how long it will take to be released and available?

    I think the .22cal gives more options for barrels/pellets etc. right now!

    Been shooting ( COMPETING ) in Field Target using exclusively .20 caliber for the last 3 seasons.

    2016 Oregon State & 2016 Nevada State hunter PCP champion using a Daystate Mk-3 in .20 cal.

    2017 AAFTA National Championship overall high score & Hunter PCP champion using a RAW TM-1000 in .20 cal

    2018 AAFTA National Gran Prix Hunter PCP champion with the same gun.

     

    .20's are Bad azz at the 20 ft lb limit classes, be it Open or Hunter ….. results speak VOLUMES that this odd ball caliber is no bastard !

    I bought one of those oddballs in 86 from Beeman (HW77 lefty). I blame that gun for my addiction. It has MANY thousands of rounds through it and still shoots smoothly and accurately. It was my first adult airgun and would be the last gun I would ever let go.

    Sounds like the new .20 cal JSB Heavy will be arriving in February, based on this post: https://www.airgunnation.com/topic/whattttttt-new-offerings-from-jsb/page/2/#post-410134

     

    I may have to add a .20 cal barrel to my target gun just to shoot these…
