Benjamin .22 HC pellets
« on: August 07, 2017, 03:22:33 PM »
Does anyone have and/or can tell me the weight of the old green tin benjamin "High Compression" pellets? 

These are not the benjamin pellets that looked just like the crosman premiers.  These had ribbed waists. 

Interested in the weights of the .22 pellets.  I think I found that the .177 weighed 8.7 grains. 

Thanks!

Sorry I don't have your answer offhand. Do you have a scale that measures grams or fractions of an ounce? 1 gram = 15.4323 grains, or 1 ounce = 437.5 grains. Weigh a pile of pellets and do the math. That will give you a close figure. The more pellets in the pile you weigh the more accurate you'll be.

I have a scale, but I don't have the pellets.  I was hoping someone would have some of the pellets and could weigh them.

  I have a tin of these.  I just weighed out 100 grams, counted 111 pellets.  1.11 grams each or just a tad over 17 grains.  Is my math right?

  No, that can't be right!  I can't do math this early in the morning.  Weighed out a second 100 grams, this time 115 pellets.  Don't know how accurate my scale is.

  Okay, something closer to 13.4-13.9 grains....
