    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.

    Try MAC1. He might still have them in stock from his pellet sale.

    How would I get ahold of him?

    Never mind. I just read on the yellow forum that he is back ordered for at least several months.

    Since no one seems to have them, and i don’t need 2500, what other pellet would behave similar to the JSB’s?

    Crosman Premiers or Beeman Trophies are good also.

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Pyramid air has just dropped the price of the crosman premier domed! $14.65 a box! 😯

    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.

    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 😯
