Theoben rapid, what pellet

Post by 32:1 » 23 Dec 2015, 17:56

Hi Guys
To save days and £££'s I thought Id ask all the rapid .177 owners what pellets seem best.

If I went and bought say 3 or 4 tins, what shoud they be, Ive tried bisley lrg, falcons and superdomes, all crap in this

Cheers

Chris

If your Rapid is a sub 12 ft lb then I would get a tin of Jsb exact, you can get them in three sizes from memory 4.51 4.52 and 4.53 they will all shoot through your gun you just have to see which one groups best.

If it were a .20 sub 12 ft lb it would be again Jsb exact or if 28ft lb like mine I would use Crosman premier 14.73 grains they have a harder skirt so don't break up 1000 fps easily

.22 Accupels are very good

I have 4 Rapids and these are what I use

H and N Barracuda (Bis mags but properly QC'd) would be a good start. IMHO

Most of the Theobens I know work well with them :)

Well, did plenty at range and found Accupells were best, just overHNftt

Good bit of fun and found some came out like a shotgun

The .177 was known to be very pellet fussy, unlike the .22.
When i had my .177 it only liked Bisley magnum's 10.6g, and Crossman premiers 7.9g, and that was it, i dare say accupells 7.9 would be the same as the premiers.
