Air pressure guns use as ammunition the well known pellet. This kind of projectiles use lead as its main and only component (except for some types of premium lead where other materials are used). With a multitude of types distinguished by the type of head, each one with a specific function, there isn’t a best kind of pellet for air rifle shooting, there is only the type of pellet that best fits your needs. Traditionally the pellets used were spherical which aimed to penetrate deep into the target, but weren’t as effective in terms of shooting accuracy.

Unlike round pellets that due to their shape can rotate in any direction, the diabolo pellets only rotate horizontally and not vertically. This allows for a better understanding of the behavior and bullet trajectory which will allow the shooter an improved accuracy.

The flat head pellets have been specially created for the practice of shooting at paper targets / card. Despite losing some accuracy at targets placed at a distance greater than 20 meters, they are widely used because when they contact with their target they open a round hole facilitating the score assignment based on the contact point reached in shooting tests. In a more informal shooting as the practice of plinking (shooting at targets, soda cans or even boards) the most used are the rounded head pellets, known for the versatility of the shot as well as its aerodynamics.

The pointed head pellets are also widely used in practice referred above due to the high penetration of targets.

Finally, other types of pellets used in sports shooting are the hollow-point ammunition that operates with a good accuracy at targets on a distance not exceeding 20 meters and are known by its rapid expansion on contact with the targets.

These are just some of the main types of pellets used in air rifle target practice, there are also several variations of these types.

In Mundilar, we have a category especially designed to pellets, projectiles and ammunition from which you can find these types and many other variations of pellets that will adapt to your needs.
