Try air arms fields.

however there will always be the moment you'll want to take a longer shot or a more complicated one and you will need accurate pellets such as Air Arms diablo's, baracuda's.... they do the job perfectly and are accurate as hell!
hope this helps

personally i would stay away from hollow points!
your best pellet as been said is a dome pellet.but please buy some hollow points,and do a zero test on them!
in my rifle @ 20yds it grouped like a shot gun,so i dont use them!!
Air Arms field all the way

Out of all the shapes a domed pellet is probably the most accurate at range but as your only shooting close range a flat head or hollow point will work well if zeroed correctly.
Just be aware though that flat heads and hollow points can loose their accuracy pretty quick after 30 metres in many barrels so if a longer range shot shows itself you may be chancing a high percent of a miss or wounding shot pal.
My rifle likes hollow points to about 18 metres then after that the group starts to open up quickly.
With a domed pellet rws super fields it groups smaller than a 10p at 40 metres and thats with seven. 22 pellets as proven a few weeks ago when up at pianomans permission.
If i was you pal id buy a good domed pellet.

Good luck on getting within 10-20m of a rabbit too, unless you're static hunting on a warren
