Anyone recommend a 177 pellet for a Wolverine

Postby Reddenning » 28 Nov 2014, 03:25

Recently bought a Wolverine C 177 and noticed a few flyers when zeroing in at 12 mtrs using JSB Exact 4.52 mm, like in group of 5 at this range 4 would go in the same hole and one might be 4inches away when I was certain I couldn't have pull it this badly. They were oldish pellets and a little dull so I pulled through a cleaning patch and got out a new tin of Exacts at 4.51 which seemed much better with no blatant flyers noted to date though I've not shot more than 200. I've seen a few suspect shots but they weren't so bad that I could definitely say they weren't due to my poor shooting.
Does anyone have a pellet recommendation for this rifle? My HW100 doesn't seem to be very pellet fussy so I hope the Woverine's not going to be.

JSB exacts have been great in mine, also 4.52. I use JSB heavy for hunting also very good. Could it be the old dull pellets were damaged.

I have tried RWS super fields and super domes. Not bad but not as good as the JSB's. Numerous other pellets, crossman heavy, weihrauch magnum's but so far JSB rules.

At 12 mtrs most pellet's should go through the same hole ....if not I would be a bit worried :cry:

Hi

I too notice that with my wolverine B .177 that its a lot more pellet fussy than my Weihrauch HW100

I've settled with H& N Field trophy. What I notice is with my wolverine is that when I change pellets I have to re-zero as its way off, then everything is fine. Don't do that with my HW 100. But agree with the above, I'd be worried if your shots were not going through the same hole at 12 metres.

AirArms Express 7.9 have been excellent for me !
Would definitely recommend you try them, also make sure you pull the barrel threw between brands when pellet testing !

be very careful using a pull thro to clean your wolverine barrel as I have seen a few lad's ruin the probe oring that's inside the barrel :shock: i'v even seen a lad using a vfg cleaning rod with a felt on the end pull the oring out of the barrel :o be very careful ;)

I expect that this has to be my favourite pellet, the 525 grain .600" PWP 1,400fpe.
Will it fit your Daystate? ;)

Thanks for all the replies (well most),
I was a bit concerned to see pellets not being very tight at 12m and even now I'm not entirely happy with this rifle. I was out today in breezy conditions (trying 4.51 alongside a new tin of 4.52) at 35mtrs and getting spreads greater than I would have expected not just horizontal, which could be windage, but vertical spreads too it was odd because there were also reasonably tight groups of 5 as well. As soon as I can get a couple of hours peace in good light I'll get the chrono out because what I'm seeing could well be due to variable muzzle velocity.
How can I tell if the o ring is damaged?

The O ring may show signs of abrasion, if it does replace it. Inspect the pellet chamber perimeter for sharp edges, it should show a bevel all round. Check that tip of pellet probe is central to chamber. Test for group by direct loading pellets singly, inspect pellets for damage. If no change, remove moderator (if fitted). If still no change inspect bore of moderator adapter for a pencil line of lead showing pellet clipping.

My mk4 like 4.50 or 4.51 sizes go higher and get flyers.
MK4 is target
