I'm still pretty new at this sport and completely addicted, so if anyone has any pointers or favorite pellets that shoot well let me know and I'll try them.
I appreciate all the advice I can get.

jeager10,

The best way to find which pellet that shoots best in your rifle is to purchase a "sampler pack". The one from Straight Shooters, http://www.straightshooters.com/common/sspelsmp.html, is about the best I have come across. Also check out the Terminal Pellet test at http://home.hiwaay.net/~ispellan/PelletTest02.html to see the results on many of the different pellets available. My personal favorite for hunting is the Beeman Crow Magnum and the H&N wad cutter but I am testing JSB’s Predator pellets at the moment and am getting some great results from lower powered rifles using them. The major drawback to using them is cost - almost $12.00 per tin(200 count in both .177 & .22). Lawdog
