in case of IHP ,what makes the difference is the pellets used, because good quality.177 pellets are easily available here than .22 pellets. if u can find the best pellets in either calibre for your gun & both will be equally accurate.

I spoke to a very knowledgeable gentleman in chennai. As per him, .177 is much better than .22 in IHP.
He explained the reason and I am convinced. My next buy will be .177 IHP.

M1
I think we meet the same gentleman from Chennai last week in Mumbai.

We tested around 4 types of .22 pellets with tuned IHP .22 air rifle but there is very much variation in velocity for same types of pellets

For 14.3gr Master Shot Round Heads Max FPS was 751 that is 18 ft-lbs but only once we get this reading other time the velocity was varying from 450 to 560 FPS

For gsmith 19 gr pellets max FPS was 345 that is 5 ft-lbs very poor
We use the pellet seater but no improvement in FPS & consistency in velocity
If there is so much variation in velocity it will definitely effect in the accuracy
That means IHP .22 works good with lightweight pellets

But with my .177 IHP without tuning I am getting good consistency in velocity

Final conclusion by use was IHP .177 barrel is better the .22
I just want opinion of our gurus

Thanks

It all depends on which pellet suits a gun better. Both IHP 22 and 177 barrels are made in the same factory, where is the difference they are milled and manufactured to the same standard.

Qualty of barrels in different makes of air guns will differ. As Shahid points out how could IHP barrels differ wether they are in 177 or 22 ??

What is it that you are looking for between both these calibres ?

That fps of 460 to 560....besides being very inconsistent....is low for for a TUNED gun. Conclusions can only be reached with a wider sample and factual data between equally set up guns in both calibres. :)

Yes shahid you are right but

Today I brought Master Shot .177 pellets (Yellow Box) for 250/- from M/s. BANSONS

Now the result of Master Shot Pellets

Normal reading without Pellet seating

660,666,666,663,673 Avg is 665 fps variation is13 fps

Deep Pellet seating about 5 to 7 mm using screw driver

714,717,716,721,711,716 Avg is 715 fps variation is 11 fps

Increase in velocity is about 50 fps but not much variation in velocity in both the case

But when we was using .22 air rifle with 4 different types of pellets the variation in FPS is around 100 FPS which is not acceptable


What is the weight of Master Shot .177 pellets (Yellow Box)

Hi,
gsmith P10 .177 is around Rs:350/- per tin, I find them much superior to mastershot yellow box on paper. Both are similar by looks.
rgds,
