Pellet Test (Weihrauch HW100)
Weihrauch HW100 Pellet Test
What’s The Test About?
The whole point of the Ronnie Sunshines PAP test is that we are getting the Air rifles straight out of the box to see what the power is like, what the accuracy is like, and if a style/weight of a pellet makes a difference.
Pellets We Tested
The 8 types of pellets we tested were the Domed QYS, Domed Air Arms Diabolo Field, RWS Superpoint, BSA Blue Star, Domed RWS Super Field, H&N Baracuda Hunter Extreme, Domed H&N Field Target Trophy and Domed JSB Exact Diabolo. Let’s have a look at the stats for each pellet.
|So as we can see with the QYS pellets after shooting 5 shots through the chrono, we got an average of 11.3 ft/lb, and after a 5 shoot grouping, you can see the pellets were slightly right. Specs of pellet – .177 Domed, 8.48gr|
|Air Arms Field Diabolo|
|After the 5 shot chrono power test with the Air Arms, we got an average of 11.4 ft/lb. The accuracy wasn’t bad either and just about stayed inside the centre circle. Specs of pellet – .177 Domed, 8.4gr|
|RWS Super Point Extra|
|Now, the superpoint! Where do we start… With the BSA R-10 SE the accuracy was very poor but as we can see here it isn’t bad at all. It can go anywhere. The power came in at 11.1 ft/lb Spec of pellet – .177 Point, 8.2gr|
|BSA Blue Star|
|Next up is the BSA Blue Star. As you can see, it’s one of the lightest pellets, which could be a factor of the power being lower but it still shot 11ft/lb. The accuracy was great as you can see with most of the hits being in the middle ring. Spec of pellet – .177 Flat head, 8.02gr|
|RWS Super Field|
|The RWS super field came out with 11.2 ft/lb. The accuracy and grouping was good as it stayed in the middle ring. There wasn’t any random shots, they were all quite tight. Specs of pellet – .177 Domed, 8.4gr|
|Baracuda Hunter Extreme|
|Now, Notice the power increase. The Baracuda is the heaviest pellet we tested, and by far the most powerful, coming in at 11.6 ft/lb. Also there is a small pellet drop due to the heavier weight however the grouping isn’t the best, but these pellets are best for pest control. Spec of pellet – .177 Cross head design, 9.57gr.|
|RWS Field Target Trophy|
|The Field Target Trophy. It came out bang-on 11.3 ft/lb with a very good accuracy, similar to the QYS pellets. All of the 5 shots on the target basically stayed in the centre ring. Spec of pellet – .177 Domed, 8.64gr|
|JSB Exact Diabolo|
|As we can see, the JSB Exact Diabolo was on the money in this case, the grouping is very tight, indeed it was the best pellet for accuracy. Overall a very good pellet. Spec of pellet – .177 Domed, 8.44 gr.|
