PCP, C02, and Helium Powered Airguns / Re: Gauntlet accuracy issue
« Last post by d_boom on Today at 02:01:29 PM »
Found Danzac listed under WS2 (Tungsten Disulfide) and ordered.  Inspecting the bolt's pellet probe using
a tissue showed an air leak when shot, replacement seals are on order also.  I will install a Jefferson State
Air Rifles Tune Kit so the hammer force can be adjusted, and have better air flow around the poppet valve.
While waiting for parts I used JB bore cleaning compound for a clean and lead free bore, bore appears to
be smooth.  Thanks all for the suggestions I will report back my success fixing my Gauntlet back to its
former accuracy.

Not to belittle a small point, but pellets are called diabolo, which means wasp-waisted. Diablo means devil in Spanish.

More weight= more energy downrange? Might be worth it to pick up a tin of JSB Beasts @ 16.2 to see if your gun shoots them accurately.

Actually, the heavier pellets are better when shooting in a springer, I know that for sure. Probably better for your piston gun too as it controls the force of the ram. The lighter the pellet, the more shock at the end of the rams travel.The heavier the pellet, the less shock at the end of travel.
Also though the heavier pellet may be travelling slower, it contains more energy downrange than a lighter pellet, thus mo smackdown energy. ;D

I have been given nothing but grief when I've talked about using a heavier pellet in a springer over at the GTA. In my case I have an RWS/Diana 350 Magnum, and that thing loves heavier pellets.

While ordering the Diablo field I see they have a 16.4 grain pellet. What would that be good for,just curious. ???

Think there is any chance that a steady diet of those big pellets would be harmful to my gun ?

10.34 g.  Here's the link to them:

They shoot just a tad better than the CP boxed 10.5 in my BSA. Just more consistant.

Go to Pyramyd Air website and look up their pellet offerings. Unfortunately, they don't offer a sampler and I only shoot Crosman boxed heavy and  AA Field heavy pellets (both 10+ grain) that I shoot in my FT gun. There are even heavier pellets, but I don't have any as these are what MY gun shoots well.
If you PM me your address I'll send you some samples of each to try.

I tried the pellets you sent and the ones marked Diablo field heavy worked the best of any I've used so far. Been shooting pellets between 7.6 - 7.9. What is the weight of the Diablo? Thank you for sending those and helping out.
