I know this is a "gun forum" but i think the newer pellet rifles can compare to a .22 rifle (almost) anyways i compared three different pellets and was surprised with the results. This was a 5 shot group at 25 yrds. With the Daisy pellets. About $8 for 500 This was the same with Gamo lethal pellets. $20 for 100! And this was with Beeman pointed pellets, $6.99 for 500. This is by far my favorite and most accurate and the cheapest. Go figure? They also fit nice and snug in the rifle. Gamo silent cat. 1250 feet per second.
