An Air Rifle Pellet Photographic Database (updated 19/05/12). All the pellets have been photographed at x2 life size and then resized for the database.
No additional updates to this database are planned.
For a reliable source of Pellet weights and BC values I would recommend this list provided by the, now defunct, Chairgun site, additional information on airgun pellet ballistics can be read here on the Beemans site. Please note that the stated pellet weights can easily vary by at least 5% due to manufacturing tolerances, if you are using a chronograph to check your rifles power output you should consider weighing the pellets being used.
If you are prepared to send me upto 4 pellets of any brands that are not included in the database so I can photograph and measure them please contact me. If you see any errors I would appreciate you contacting me so that I can correct them.
Using a chronograph can be made simpler using a software programme. This software allows a computer to be connected to your Chrony or Combro chronograph to record and analyse your pellet string data.
Another pellet list and air rifle power calculator can be found here on the Extorian website.
