I hope I am posting this in the right place, please forgive me if not.

I've come across a pair of .22 Webley & Scotts Premier pistols (circa 1970's).

However I have no idea which modern pellets will suit them best.

Can anyone advise please?

Thanks.

I use accupel or matchpell in my older Webleys works fine , but so do bull dogs if practicing or plinking.

On older airguns you may find the barrels are more worn/used than newer models therefore you 'may' get an advantage by using oversize .177 pellets such as 4.51/4.52mm(apoligies for mixing imperial/metric!!)

Its a fair comment about warn barrels though, shooting an old Webley well is a nice feeling cause no one makes them like that any more.

Nice pistols, but not the most accurate air guns ever designed! A suitable pellet for this pistol is the good old Milbro Caledonian, cheap at about a fiver a tin and suited to 5.6 mm bored barrels, quite reasonable performance as well in an old BSA Mercury I recently repaired for a friend, 30mm groups at thirty yards rather surprisingly.
