I'm just not a big fan of the pellets sold in tins at the Big Box stores. I equate those to the category of floor sweepings. Some tins may be good, but the consistency from tin to tin is suspect at best. For Crosman pellets, I prefer the boxed pellets. The boxed pellets are all from the same die and have much less variation in weight and diameter. The better quality pellets cost more, but in the end, the goal is consistency. Since I shoot .177 heavies, my top 3 choices are Kodiaks, JSBs, and CPH. If PCP gun can't group with one of these pellets, it's time to examine the barrel a little closer. I say PCP because most people don't advocate shooting heavies in springers.
For lighter pellets, the same still holds true. You get what you pay for. If you go cheap, you get cheap. When I started, I went through the Crosman tins, the Gamos, and the Beemans from the Big Box stores. When I moved up to the better pellets, I discovered that I wasn't as bad a shot as I initially thought.
Heck, I'm still not that good, but now I know it's me, not the gun or pellet.
