Well, I set up my new Caldwell deluxe chronograph yesterday with IR LED's, backstop full of packed junk mail (new use for bad rubbish!), backed by 4" of pink Styrofoam insulation, 3/4" particle board, & a 2x12 in my man cave. Tried these three pellets in the Striker 1000x .22, 6 shots each in FPS;
Crosman PHP, 14.3gr     RWS Superpoint Extra, 14.5gr     H&N Baracuda Green Domed, 12.65gr
766                              694                                           864
753                              689                                           870
745                              719                                           867
739                              692                                           865
736                              700                                           865
732                              703                                           869
Average velocity after 6 shots-
745.16FPS                    699.5FPS                                   866.67FPS
I was kind of surprised that it liked the H&N Baracuda Greens. I mean, they are the lightest, but it seems like even .2 of a grain made more difference than I thought that minute amount would? They're also the most consistent. So Hatsan must've tested with 13gr pellets or so to get the listed 800FPS? I'll try the H&N Baracuda green domed at the range next time & see what happens?

Hatsan only uses real lead pellets for testing. They're likely the lightest weight lead they can get but they're real lead not the green lead free stuff and why Hatsan's fps numbers are usually pretty close to what they claim depending on what you find yours shoots the most accurate.

Yeah, I've read that a lot about their tests. Had to be a bout 13gr to get that 800FPS. If the Baracuda Green's do well at the range, I'll use those for awhile.

I've read that they use the Hatsan  Vortex Express pellet for their testing, 13.12 grains in .22

Thanks for mentioning that. Was wondering which one was used, and hadn't looked at their pellets much. I traded the two boxes of Straight Shooters .177 cal samplers I got from a member here after using a few myself for a bunch of tins of .22 pellets not opened by a fellow air gun page administrator on Facebook who no longer needed them. I added the tin of Beeman Silver Bears that are the same 12.65gr as the H&N Baracuda Green's. Here's a pic of the tins of pellets from the trade;

I used them in the Hatsan Striker 1000x here as a good excuse to break it in further, of course. But it's also the only one of two .22 cals that shoots atm. The Crosman 160 still has an intermittent leak after the new @=S+S%^$# valve assembly went in. Did a new Airgun Shooter video with the chronograph plugged into my new Galaxy J3 phone & Caldwell app;

Here's another view of pellets nobody seems to think of showing that I finally had the thought to not too long ago. Each pellet is a bit different in length, and of course design. BUT, look at the skirt design to the left of each one. The H&N Sniper Light has a skirt that looks just like a rocket engine's nozzle. And the Gamo Platinum PBA looks like a shorter, lighter version of H&N's Baracuda Green.

L-R; Crosman PHP 14.3gr, H&N Field Target Trophy 14.66gr, H&N Sniper Light 14gr, H&N Baracuda Green 12.65gr, Gamo Platinum PBA 9.7gr, Gamo Rocket 14.3gr, RWS Superpoint Extra 14.5gr, Beeman Silver Bear 12.65gr.

Well, I decided to clean all three air rifle's barrels and found them quite filthy indeed. Long before factory recommended intervals. I was sure some of the chronograph numbers were off. Well, I learned some interesting things yesterday when I shot this video of me shooting the pellets a second time from EP 14 in EP17, I call REDO.

I don't normally like wood stocks but that is "dang" good looking.   I may order one for my edge.

On another note. Those sniper lights are really accurate but when I chrony them they're all over the place 680-740fps.   They're the most inconsistent pellet speed wise but are good for 5/8" groups at 15yards.   Really odd.

Yeah man, I'm starting to see that myself. And after I had to install a new breech seal too on the Winchester .177. I have the sniper lights for both, and they are rather odd chrono-wise? I oiled all the guns again today while waiting for the A frame 10-gun rack to arrive.

I also had another problem I didn't notice right away when shooting that video. About 8X shots in, I noticed two half inch long metal shards hanging out toward the back of the Hammers scope mount. Darn think had slowly walked about a half-inch backward during all those shots up to the point I noticed it. Turned the scope mount around, remounted the scope in it, then installed the Hatsan scope stop backwards with one screw in it to allow for better eye relief while using it. Here's some pics of it all;
Photobucket is messed up again. Blacked out screen with add for canvas prints it's trying to lock me into buying before I EVEN have a chance to sign in!? Will try pics later.

Now when I get some money again, My son and I will head over to Gun Hub to shoot some pellets and sight in. Again in my case. Wanna take the Winchester .177 and Benji Trail .25 too. Really enjoy shooting the Hatsan Striker 1000x though. Gee, does it seem light compared to the Trail NP XL725 and 1400cs...

Okay, been making lists like crazy this week for .177 and .22 pellets, slings for the Striker and Benjamin Trail NP XL725, etc.  For the Striker 1000x, I see the Winchester 1400cs elongated front sling swivel on the cocking lever (under barrel hinge part) looks like it's wide enough to fit the Striker. But the lever Will have to be drilled through on the Striker to mount the front sling swivel. But I do wanna do this the right way. Hatsan couldn't help me. There response was rather typical, " Leonard, we do not offer sling mounts for that model. You can find slip-on shotgun slings That may fit your needs". Seriously? Not a tinker or gunsmith in da house? Guess I have to take'em back to school?...

Have any of you tried these H&N hornet pellets in .22cal @ 16gr in a springer with the power/range of a Striker 1000x .22?

I'm on the fence with regard to the weight vs the 1000x's velocity?

Nope, too expensive for my wallet but a 16gr pellet should work just fine weight wise in your 1000X.

Weight should not be a problem because I've shot H&N 21.14 through mine a number of times.

My primary concern is that, @ 16gr, it might be a hair too heavy for the average 800FPS or so springer? I even contacted H&N with an idea to bounce off their engineers to change the machined tip in the .22 version to cut 1.5gr off the total weight. Here's their engineer's response;

That said, have any of you chronographed these? Any target shots with either .177 or .25 version at some 20-25 yards? I have to wait to get paid again to buy the tins of each to test and hunt with.

I've shot (other) 16gr pellets and heavier both over the Chrony and at targets through a spring powered Striker Edge in .22. Some certainly seemed a little "off," but generally speaking these guns (mine at least) shoot well with these heavier pellets. I once got a sub 6 fps extreme spread with the JSB Jumbo Monster 25.39 gr domes, and they grouped well (at 20 yards) too. I wouldn't shoot those on the regular (too slow to legally hunt with and too expensive to stock up on for me), but the gun didn't seem to mind them.

If I shot half as good as you, you'd still shoot twice as good as me!

My Edge Vortex .22 except for the gas ram is the same rifle as your 1000X springer and has the same 800 fps rating and I've never had any problems shooting 16-18gr pellets in it and it shoots them all pretty well...for that matter, all my .22's do, gas ram or springer. I've also shot the JSB King 18.13 gr with no problems so your rifle should handle any of them just fine and all of the above are way less expensive than the Terminators.
The H&N Crow Magnum and H&N Baracuda Hunter Extreme also do pretty nasty things to small game, the Sniper Magnums I have yet to try on live targets.

I was wondering about the .22 version, as the Crosman Optimus I bought my youngest son has virtually the same power range as my Striker 1000x, both being .22cal as well. I figured he could shoot smaller pigs with it. I might even let one of the other boys use the 1000x with'em for small pigs while I use the Trail NP xL725 .25 magnum on them.
