I've had the best luck with JSB Diabolo Exact Jumbo, 15.8 Grains. The lighter JSB Express 14.3 variant work pretty well also.

JSB Heavies

Beeman Kodiak

Crosman Premier

Benjamin Discovery HP/Crosman HP (same pellet)

I have seen rifles shoot any one of these into 1" or less groups at 50 or under 1/2" at 25 yards...Just depends on the individual gun but the above are all pellets to try first.

the best in my gun are beeman field target special and crossman premier domed, under 3/8" for 10 to 15 shot groups!! and can use the same scope settings, beeman kodiak and the polymer tipped predator's also shoot under 1/2" consistanly but shoot low and left for the kodiaks and and left about an 1" for the predators! If I shoot 5 shot groups the special field & the premiers will usually do a 1/4" or better for 5 shots, kodiak's and predator's 5 shot groups usualy run 3/8" to 1/2" hope this helps I bought a lot of different pellets and these are all I will use now. I'm getting this kind of performance off a bench and using 10 power setting on my scope which has adjustable paralax, on a calm to light breeze day. I like this gun!!!

JSB Predator's I have tried all the pellets mentioned above with pretty much the same results 1/2" groups at 75ft.But the Predators will put them into a clover leaf consistantly at the same range.I know they are a little pricey but if you are looking for accuracy try them.
I also use a Beeman Pellet seat tool.It rounds and expands the skirt then pushes the pellet into the bore a little further than your thumb.

Just My Opinion
