    If you was a new to air rifles and pellet brands, which of the two .25 pellets would you judge to be the best quality just by LOOKING at them?

    I will tell you the 2 brands above after I get some feedback.

    They look the same but one on right looks washed and lubed

    Nope.   Both of the above are 2 NEW tins (different brand) that I just opened.   This is what you see when you open them.

    I guess so…..
    For lack of more response I’ll break the suspense.

    The one on the Left is the famous pellet JSB Exact king .25 diabolo 25.39 gr.
    The one on the Right is Benjamin Brand in .25 cal.  (doesn’t even give the weight of the pellet on the tin)

    Thing is that Benjamin LOOKS heads above in quality.  Who know how it shoots but like Brian10956 said…it looks washed and lubed right from the tin.

    Just my 2 cents

    If I were new to airgunning, I’d probably say the ones on the right (the shiny ones) are the better of the two. But I’m not new to airgunning and I know you can’t judge a pellet by its cover. The proof is only in the shootin’.

    The Benjamin are 27.8 grains and they tend to be more accurate the the JSB 25.39 grainers out of my Wildcat .25 cal. Bill

    I only know what I can see at this point but of course you are right BeemanR7.

    I must admit, my benj’s don’t look that good, would you mind posting a picture of the tin lid?  thanks. (Maybe they have changed their mfg. process and only the new ones look that clean?)

    Here you go.  They look impressive compared to other pellets that I’ve seen.   But haven’t shot any yet so I can’t say anything about that.

    The benji’s are a harder pellet, where as the JSB’s have a larger if not total lead content. I make a lot of fishing equiptment, the lead? used in todays tire weights is way shinier than that of decades back. When cast in the same molds they are also lighter.

    Is harder and shinier and good thing for pellets, or no?

    It’s not the looks it’s how the pellet size fits in the groves the correct fit will give you better accuracy and the ability to adjust the speed for the best stabilized flight of the projectile. That why FX is coming out with different barrels liners that will be made to optimize various pellets.
