    Given the power of many of the higher end PCP’s, I think there’s a place for a heavier JSB .22 diabolo pellet. I know they have the 25gr and the new 34 gr pellets, but they are not diabolo shaped. The 34gr is just too heavy for most .22 rifles and the 25gr isn’t winning any accuracy contests. The next heaviest is the 18gr. Would love to see a 22 or 23 grain diabolo pellet from JSB.  Anyone agree?

    I don’t see why the 25gr would not be accurate with the right velocity.

    Here’s some quick phone pics of the 25gr next to the 18gr

Yet you still chose 18.13 (the weight of the standard DIABOLO JSB  Jumbo Heavy) as your forum name!

    I think that Chasdicapua has a point, even though the (non diabolo) .177 heavies are the bee’s knees in my HW100 carbine.

    Just pointing out that there is another JSB .22 cal. heavy pellet he might try. And also a JSB 25.39 gr hollow point in .22 cal.                                                                                     http://www.topgun-airguns.com/STRATON-JUMBO-MONSTER-22–2539-Grain–200-Count_p_34.html

    The 25gr monsters never have performed well for me in any gun, until I had one that could push them 900fps and above. I have a custom marauder (being picked up tonight as I just sold it) that shoots the monsters amazingly at its current tune of 924fps.

    Yep, all they need is the right speed. As with any pellet ever

    So, the key to shooting the non-diabolo pellets accurately is enough speed.
    Thanks for the feedback.

    There are 21 gr and 28 gr 22 cal pellets. In order to get the weight up a standard diabolo shape will not work because it would have to be too wide.  So length is the only way to go.  I have had great results shooting the 28 gr Shenco New Boy heavy ammo in my Sumatra.  The 34 gr beasts do not shoot well in it.  My Sumatra can push the 34 gr well over 950 fps but they are not accurate.  It may have something to do with the Sumatra’s larger barrel but for whatever reason they shoot like poo in it.
