I generally zero my FAC air rifles at near zero 19 yards; far zero 43 yards. I zero my my rimfires at 18 and 52 yards with Eley Subs at a MV of 1080fps. Have a look at this thread on a forum I contribute to, it gives the general idea;

As for pellets, I normally use AA Field .22 15.9gn at 1000fps, if I substitute AA Field 18gn my MV drops to 950fps with similar trajectory to the 15.9gn from my barrel. I set muzzle energy to approx 36fp as I find this ideal for UK pest control purposes. As for heavier pellets, personally I don't see the need and prefer the flatter trajectory and adequate energy of the lighter pellet from my barrels.
