I am going to ring out a 20x scoped Walther LGR soon & have RWS basics, & Superpoints on hand & would like to hear what anyone has luck with in LGR's. I will be shooting from 20-40 yards on paper & maybe the occasional Starling.....I usually order bulk from Champions Choice & like bulk order options.

The best thing I can recommend is a pellet sampler

The reason is you might prefer a certain pellet yourself, and while that pellet may be very accurate, there can be others, substitutes, which might be just as accurate or easier to find. Or cheaper. POI may vary slightly but the accuracy is just as good.

Remember to test the same pellet at close distances And long distances.

Pellet accuracy in my LGR...

March 15 2013, 12:28 PM 

My LGR shoots the following very well, they are ordered according to accuracy at 15 yards:

1) H&N Match Rifle (one-hole groups @ 15 yards)
2) RWS Meisterkugeln
3) JSB Exact Heavy

My gun shot all of the pellets I tried relatively well, but the aforementioned pellets just stood out with clearly the best accuracy.

best pellets

March 15 2013, 2:07 PM 

Mine likes the lighter pellets (7.3 JSB RS and the AA Falcons). I shoot at between 25-35 yds and these standout in mine. My harder shooting Annie 380 LG and FWB 300s rifles handle the 7.9 Express best at these distances but not the CPL of same weight. All great rifles. I want a Diana 75 next. Good shooting! David

I ordered 4-5 differant type & weight this morning from AoA, so at least I'll have about 7-8 total options to try for now. My 300s actually shoots the RWS superpoints great @ 40 yards on a wind behaved day & have done a few 4 outa 5 shot one holers with it at that distance & scoped of course. The quality of these older 10m guns are insane.

It's the triggers on these that spoil us

I need to stop collecting, NOW, as it makes it hard to pick up normally great springers' triggers. But the shocker for me is finding out/admitting that the HW30S/R7 is also extremely accurate for a new gun at less cost and a bit more power.
