  1. TX200 for me, no debate. IMHO the Prosport loses out on looks. Next HW77. Mine's nearly as good as the TX but it's taken a lot of practice that the TX didn't. HW99s Great little rifle straight out of the box. Strange that such a light rifle is so accurate contrary to what you hear about weight adding stability. HW97KT. Sorry folks but I just can't get any consistency from mine.

    JSB Exact Express and RS

    I use JSB express, Exact 4.53 and Heavies in my TX. All work really well.

    It might be worth trying a RFD as Weihrauch make a silencer for hw77 which also has open sights.

    Do they scrub lead out of the barrel?

    It’s weird how hard they hit given they’re only a tad heavier than JSB

    Yes I know, they've gone up since I bought them. They're not that good.

    Will do, I'm on the website at the moment to see if they still sell them.

    I'm not sure of the head size till I dig them out in the morning. Rez, They are a bit tight but not too bad. Like I said before, I can't do a fair accuracy test with the wind as it has been recently. I've got a tin of Barracuda Match to try next, Maybe a bit controversial, a while ago I gave Crossman Premiers a bash in my 97. JS Ramsbottoms sell them in boxes of 1250. I can't remember the price but they were cheap. These were very tight and were a pain to load. I put them through a TbT sizing die to 4.51. I was very impressed with the accuracy. I don't know the range of sizes they make but 4.50 might be worth a go.

    I decided to try these pellets in my HW77 today. 1st impressions are really good. They seem to punch through the wind better than JSBs. They also smack pretty hard. The inconsistent wind meant a fair accuracy comparison was not possible. I tried them in my TX200 but they were not quite as good. Has anyone else got any thoughts?
  15. I've just fitted a Falcon S18i FFP to my HW77. The glass is very clear throughout the mag range. The reticle is sharp and the lines are not too thick at high mag. They are a bit thin at x3 & x4 but a bit of reticle illumination sorts it out. The turrets are super accurate but don't lock. They don't feel like they will move without human input but only time will tell. Expensive at £350 but a lot cheaper than the Sidewinder FFP and the reticle is sharper. It only took 5 shots to zero at 50m. I've not been able to shoot a decent group due to strong, gusty wind but I was pinging golf balls at 50m (roughly 60%). I'll post some pics when the weather is better.
