The lead free issue isn't too bad really. All my guns shoot GTO pellets pretty close to the same point of impact as my lead pellets and in all my guns they group tighter than CPHP pellets. Figure around $18 for 300 pellets in .22

If you're shooting a really hot PCP you might want to back out the hammer spring 2 turns.

Eddie, the H&N Baracuda Greens and SIG Wraiths are a little heavier if you want to try something with more mass. Iíve be been experimenting with them in my springers, with good results.

Invert the argument, does it still make sense? If it doesn't find a new argument.

Thanks, Marty I will have a look at them. I have half a tin of some kind of H&N alloy, I forget which weight. My GTO's are 11.75 gr. in .22

Hello,
Just stumbled onto this thread. Im located in the other end of the state, in Western MA. Fairly new to airguns in general so Im looking for any location(s) or events convenient or close to Western MA. Currently most of my shooting is in my backyard on a home made range.
Nice to know there are a few of us around this state.

Hey fellow Baystate residents, I live in Western Mass. I have participated in some field target events many moons ago in Mass, CT and NY. I suppose some are still scheduled but I have not seen much in the past few years. I just got back into shooting and I have a lot of guns that require repair. Right now I have been obsessed with my Airforce Talon SS. I have managed to work up several tunes at .22. I also have a .25 barrel and .20 barrel for it. Still hacking around with it.

Welcome back! Summer is just getting started, I hope you get lots of time to enjoy your guns and work on some projects.
