This gun is still shooting pretty fast after 900+ rounds. I'm waiting for a new scope mount for it too test 5 new pellets for accuracy. The Diabolo WC are putting out over 15fpe. So far 6 out of 19 pellets tested in this gun are under 900fps, and three of the sub 900's are the most accurate.



RWS Diabolo Basic WC (7.0gr)

1.-984.6
2.-984.4
3.-992.9
4.-986.1
5.-982.4
Avg=986.0fps

Gamo Pro magnum (7.9gr)

1.-913.5
2.-909.8
3.-908.5
4.-906.3
5.-905.7
Avg=908.7fps

JSB Predator (8.2gr)

1.-906.2
2.-904.9
3.-907.3
4.-907.1
5.-904.5
Avg=906.0fps

And if they group well, I'd get as many as you can get your hands on, b/c the ballistic coefficient is pretty lofty at ~.028 (nearly at high as the heavy Kodiak), so they'd give a flat trajectory out pretty far.

With the avg. velocity you listed they shoot right at 15fpe.

The tin I have is right around 7.9gr and its listed at that at Pyramyd Air. I weighed them with a SHIMADZU UW220H lab scale at my job. I converted grams to grains. I got the scope mounts in today and will be testing the Pro Mags.


Gamo Pro Magnum 7.9gr (177cal)

1- .514g=7.932gr
2- .514g=7.932gr
3- .511g=7.885gr
4- .505g=7.793gr
5- .512g=7.901gr
6- .512g=7.901gr
