Default Pellets

HI Darren

I have tried them and the JSB EE 7.9 and both suit the gun, although I find that the DS 4.53 group slightly thighter at 45yds. I have tried all sorts DS4.52 AA 4.52 and 4.51 Crosman Premiers, Falcons & RWS Super field. But none of them came close to the two above.

Hope this helps

Thanks for the reply, how many pellets did you put through until you got good results?

Can't make the new daystates work in my GC2 but found SuperFields and FX do reasonable groups at 55yds;worth a try.

I've tried loads in my Platinum but get the best groups with 7.9 EE JSB's. The Daystate 4.53's didn't group well at all but judging by the posts on here i might give them a second cahnce on saturday at the club. Will also try the RWS pellets i have.

I have no idea how relevent the GC2 is to this thread??

could be the batch chris...

having seemingly nailed what makes the batches more consistent in my gun, it's easier to stay with one brand.

The4.53 batch that i have in stock seems to be the ones that work well in nearly all the guns they are tried in.

I am finding the jsb express 7.9 are working well. Thanks ChrisC. I am finding it takes alot of pellets for the gun to settle down. when i first started with them the chrono was reading between 760 to 791 fps.

I am now getting 805 to 813 fps, this is from 180 bar down to around 111 bar, lower than this I find the odd shot fps drops to 789 fps.

I have a few hypothesis of why this happens, but maybe someone with far more experience can enlighten me.

1. is 8 fps between shots good for this rifle ?

2. why does it take so long for the fps to increase when using a lighter pellet ?

3. I did find if I then put a Daystate 4.53 8.4 grn pellet throught, fps was 791 to 801.

In all the testing I have tried, after its settled with the pellet the platinum seems to try to get around 11.5 foot pounds. It must be the electronic setting for this gun.

I have a lot to learn about this gun, and it is a time consuming frustrating journey.

Again thanks for all your advice.
