Are Crosman SSP high velocity pellets accurate?
I test them in my new Gamo Hornet Maxxim air rifle.
I test all pellets at the same distance which is around 15 yards and in my backyard. I use a rolled up towel as a bench rest on top of a storage trunk.
Let’s take a look at my shooting/testing setup.
Here’s my pellet gun bench rest setup. It makes holding a rifle steady very easy.
Crosman SSP Supersonic Pellets in .22 cal. They weigh 9.5 grains.
Here’s a closeup of the SSP pellets.
Now let’s try a five shot group at 30 feet.
Here’s the 5 shot group from 30 feet. It’s about a 1.75 inch group. The heavier JSB pellets are much more accurate.
Lighter pellets most often are less accurate. The JSB 25 and 18 grain pellets will group in less than 1 inch.
