Does anyone know where I could find some .22 cal JSB Dablo Exacts? Pyramid is out of stock, and the in stock date keeps on getting pushed back.May 18, 2008 at 2:21 am #39248pilgrimParticipant
Try MAC1. He might still have them in stock from his pellet sale.May 18, 2008 at 2:26 am #39249
How would I get ahold of him?May 18, 2008 at 3:05 am #39253May 18, 2008 at 3:29 am #39255pilgrimParticipant
Never mind. I just read on the yellow forum that he is back ordered for at least several months.May 18, 2008 at 4:13 am #39256cadeauParticipant
These people have them.May 18, 2008 at 4:19 am #39257
Since no one seems to have them, and i don’t need 2500, what other pellet would behave similar to the JSB’s?May 18, 2008 at 4:42 am #39261walkonkingParticipantquote bikincrazy52:
Crosman Premiers or Beeman Trophies are good also.May 19, 2008 at 2:01 am #39281
I just took care of the JSB problem, but now I need to solve another 😀
I don’t want to waist my JSB’s on aluminum cans, so I need a cheap, light, and somewhat accurate alternative.
How do the RWS Hobbies do?May 19, 2008 at 2:23 am #39282shrpshotr28Participant
Crossman Premier Hollow Points (metal tin) from PA are my plinker of choice in .22.
Always a few undersize ones in each tin but for the price plus the buy3-get1-free deal, they shoot well out to 30yd or so. My favorite plinking target at 25yd is bottle caps and they are plenty accurate for that purpose. and come 500/tin.May 19, 2008 at 2:46 am #39284
Well it is a little more complicated then that.
There are crows that sit in the tops of 100 ft trees 60 yards from my house, an easy shot. However, there is a flood control basin that is 300 yards wide, and I need the pellets to land in it, as not to have the pellets land on peoples houses. From the calculations I have done, the Hobbies are the only pellet that will drop off that fast, due to it’s light weight, and high CD.
I am skeptical that the Hobbies will be able to reliably hit a crow at 60 yards, and that is where I need someone’s help.May 19, 2008 at 3:02 am #39286shrpshotr28Participant
hobbies should be fine close range/plinking, but I would hesitate for the shot you describe (crows at 60yd) I’ve seen crows shrug off even a Kodiac at that distance and require a 2nd or 3rd shot. JSB probably the best compromise for your crow as would be accurate enough for a headshot to be possible and not carry too much downrange energy.June 1, 2008 at 2:03 am #39886
Pyramid air has just dropped the price of the crosman premier domed! $14.65 a box! 😯June 1, 2008 at 5:52 am #39893steveinlaParticipant
I have been told that the Air Arms diablo pellets are the same pellet as the JSB. That they are made in the same factory. I have some and they shoot fine. But I must admit that I don’t do any long range shooting. Rather most of my shooting is done at short ranges. I find that the Crosman Premier Domed Hollow Point pellets work well in my TSS. And they are still a good deal through PA, even with the prie increases.
Just my .02.June 1, 2008 at 6:21 am #39896
I use the Crosman Premier hollow points for plinking within 25 yards, But when I go out with my friends and shoot up to 100 yards, I use the JSB’s. I also hate how the Crosman pellets are so dirty, my fingers are solid black after a good shooting session. Just imagine what my barrel must look like 😯
