In preparation for testing my new Mac1 prepped .25 caliber Marauder, I've weight sorted Beeman standard Kodiaks, Beeman Match Kodiaks, JSB Quarter Bore Specials, and the new Benjamin .25 caliber pellets.
In a previous post a few days ago, I gave the results for the Kodiaks, both Standard and Match. The standard version of those two pellets were the most consistent by far.
Yesterday I did the JSB's and the new Benjamin's. I must say that I was very favorably impressed with both pellets.
The weight of the Benjamin .25 pellet is supposed to be 27.8 grains. I weighed two tins, (400 pellets) and the majority weighed either 27.8, or 27.9 grains. Those were followed closely by a large number that came in at 27.7 grains. There were only 33 pellets that weighed 27.6 grains, and 23 that weighed 27.5 grains. In my experience, that is excellent weight consistency.
The JSB's were even better. The advertised weight is 25.4 grains. I did two tins, (700 pellets and the majority weighed either 25.4, or 25.3 grains, with the next largest group coming in at 25.5 grains. There were only 43 pellets that weighed in at 25.2 grains. Overall, that is excellent pellet to pellet weight consistency.
Next comes accuracy testing at 50 yards. I'm still waiting for some decent weather to come our way so I can start doing that. It's snowing here as I type this. Winter's last hurrah I guess.
More to follow.
