I had a .22 for a short time, but never shot it enough to determine a favorite. Of the 3 .177's I've owned, JSB Exact 8.4 in the 4.52 head size, or Superdomes were the best. The Superdomes were usually a little faster, but not quite as accurate.

For short range work, my first CFX liked the JSB S100 match ammo, but I don't know if anyone has that in stock anymore. It also had a brief love affair with Crow Magnums, but that didn't last past my first tune-up.

My last .177 is now a .20, but since it's an LW, not a Gamo barrel, I don't suppose it's preference matters . However, it seems to like FTS/FTT's the best at the moment. I say at the moment, because it's still a work in progress. Later.

It's a 177. How can you tell is it has an LW barrel?

No LW barrels on stock Gamo's. This rifle is a custom I've been working on occasionally for the last year. The LW barrel it's currently wearing is a 16mm blank that I machined to fit. It still needs some work, it's only running at 12 fpe with it's current tune, I have a couple of things I NEED to do, and several that I want to try, my goal is a smooth shooter producing somewhere around 16 fpe. Not sure I can get it, but I'm pretty sure I can get close. Later.
