Air gun lead pellets today have evolved into very specialized projectiles. Perhaps the most critical component in the shooting equation are the pellets themselves. If you shoot poor or low grade pellets in a good quality airgun the results can be awful, and they will downgrade the performance of the gun. Conversely, a good grade of pellets in a mediocre gun will enhance the performance of the airgun, at least to a certain degree. If you are having trouble with accuracy and distance in you air gun, try upgrading to a premium pellet! Also, try the new lead-free hyper velocity pellets. These pellets have gotten rave reviews thus far, for increased velocity, penetration, and accuracy.
