I think the advantage a pellet has over a BB is:

1) Weight. More delivered energy. Lead pellet is heavier than a steel (alloy) BB.

2) Accuracy. Riflined barreled guns can grab the pellet over a large contact area, whereas a BB if fired thru rifling will tend to "tear" and "roll" out of the barrel.

I think.

Ok, I didn't realize that air guns were rifled, that makes sense. I just remember when i was a kid, I hated using pellets cause with BB's you could store like 100 in the gun. But pellets you had to put one in at a time.

Gamo Shadow hunter 1000fps .177 cal with scope
Hi all, this is my first post here. I'm Sifu Skyler McConahy of the Jing Chuan Kung Fu school. I am also an avid naturalist and small game hunter. I generally prefer air rifles to firearms (no smoke, no bang, no mess, no cops), though I've been known to break out the .22 and own some rabbits now and then.

Anyways, ah yes, the Shadow Hunter 1000. I have the same model, sporting a 3-9x AO scope. The shadow 1000 is a powerful, accurate, and well made gun (though it is loud as hell, lol). The synthetic stock is at least of as high a quality as most synthetic firearm stocks. I get almost 1000 fps and over 15 FPE with Gamo magnum hunters (the pointed ones). It's so powerful I can put a hollow point pellet almost as deep into my phone book as a .22 rimfire. All in all, a great field rifle.

I also have a 664GT powermaster clocking 700 fps (got it a while back to replace my old 760 pumpmaster. That old dog had 23 ground squirrels under it's belt when it broke, lol), which is suprisingly powerful for a Crosman, and I also have an 8 shot Crosman CO2 pistol at 440 fps. I prefer the Gamo for hunting though. The power and accuracy can't be beat.

I 've got one of those 10 pound cheapies they sell at the tool and gun show. Laminated orange wood, REAL pretty, but it works well. I put a $10 cheap airgun scope on it. Got about $30 in the whole set up.

I shoot a RWS model 350 .177 caliber w/ a 3x9 BSA scope. It does wonders on turtles in the farm ponds. It also helps you practice shooting w/o costing hardly anything. The pellet it seems to like the best is Remington brand. I tried another brand and it would shoot all over the target.

A 10 year old Daisy Powerline 880 and Daisy pointed field pellets. Surprisingly powerful and accurate for a cheap piece of plastic, it's never let me down. Very effective for rabbits on down at close range.
