Accuracy Test – Crosman SSP .22 Cal Pellets

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.
