No, but give them a call, I am sure they will advise.

as above, they use 21gr Bisley Magnum. If you are testing a rifle though its not uncommon for the rifle to be under the power rating, my airwolf for instance is rated at 40flb but in reality produces 37ftlb with Bisley magnum, and most 30 ftlb rifles will do around 28ftlb, don't know why, I guess they just round up as at this power level you wont notice a couple of foot pound either way. :D

Thanks for the replies. :)

I guess I was thinking that if super heavy pellets were used for testing, say 25 grains, then that would explain why guns bought as "40 ft-lb" rifles only produce 37 ft-lb with a lower weight pellet such as a 21 grainer.

I understand your thinking, I thought the same when I got my AirWolf so tried Daystates first recommended pellet (order they appear in handbook) the Daystate Rangemaster Monster 25 gr and that produced around the same power but terrible accuracy :D

Don't rule out Rangmaster or the Accupells 14-15 grn but fly as flat as a flat thing. My Ranger does 915fps using Rangemaster which equates to 28.5ftlb
If I have an opinion it is because I have researched it or due to life experience. It might not be the same as yours but have you done the above?
