Reason I'm asking, a cousin of mine bought a box of 10.5gr domed 177cal Crosman Pellets in the brown box. Now I have the 7.9 cpl's and they do pretty good in my Prosport. But I feel that she may not like em. I am assuming that due to a quick test of heavy pellets like jsb, kodiak's and baracuda that I done about a week ago. She is shooting around 11.7-11.9ft/lb and just prefers AA Diabolo Fields. Have the 10.5gr crosmans work for any of you guys/gals?
I always thought that there is some type of correlation when loose fitting and snug fitting pellets are concerned. Any opinions as to why I am getting good results with both pellets?
Also, if the AA's & jsb's supposed to be 4.52mm and are loose loading, does that mean the cpl's are of a larger head diameter?
thank you you guys for your responses. I want to add something though. My prosport likes the AA 8.44gr 4.52mm...so far and the jsb 8.44gr 4.52 is a runner up. They both are loose when loading. Loose enough that there were times some of them fell out. Usually not the case but loose enough to make me double check the loading. Now I been having good results on the cpl from the brown box and they're pretty snug when loading. No where near the feel of the AA's/JSB's and the cpl's shoot pretty good.

I found some on Ebay, 10.5 gr,box of 1250. I bought them to have something a little heavier for critters. I'm running these through a Winchester 1100, but they seem to work good in all of mine so far.I am limited at the moment to indoor shooting into a trap. (C'mon summer!) I do see a difference in point of aim when I also try the softer lead pellets. (Crosman are harder)
Crosman 10.5 Box domes do work better in several of my .177 guns. In fact, they are a close 4th place in my SPA PP700 out of 24 different pellets. Mind you, the Beeman Silver Jets are significantly better than everything, with JSB Heavies, the box CP domes, and Skenco Ultrashocks all about even- CP domes would be 2nd but I always have a flier unless I weigh/measure every pellet and sort accordingly, which I refuse to do on general principle. I will measure/weigh ten random pellets from every tin regardless of brand so I know what I'm getting into. Predator pellets in general remain far and away the most consistent. I'm lucky in that a number of my airguns like Predators, whether the lead-free GTOs, Polymags, or any of the others. I know from tin to tin I get very good consistency. Mind you, I don't buy the sheer quantity some folks here do.I also convinced that a box or tin of pellets is better than none, because eventually you'll own something that likes them. BTW, one of my .177 Crosman barrels that did not like RWS pellets loves the 10.5 CP domes. All my other Crosman .177 barrels do like RWS pellets and are not keen on the 10.5 domes, but I'm not going to say if they like one they'll hate the other.If you haven't already tried those CP domes, get a box and see how they work for you. 1250 pellets for less than $20 is a good deal even for chasing cans.
What did spell check do to your question? Live?I honestly have no idea what word to insert in this mad lib
