Dieseling adds power, adds noise, reduces accuracy, eats piston seals, and fouls barrels.

I gave away about $150 in .22 pellets (H&N, Crosman, RWS) after extensive testing proved I was wasting my time with them. JSB is still the king in my airsenal.

Consistent sub Moa at 100y is tricky with 17hmr. Yes I have posted results well better than that in the accuracy challenge but there were as many targets worse than 1moa.

Take that to...

The ballistics calculators will show this. The exact results depend on the scope ring height and velocity of the lot of 17hmr. Iíve had lot to lot velocity differences of 500fps.
