Pellet Rifle Mystery Solved

About 5 years ago or so I bought a Gamo Nitro 17 scope combo on line. The rifle had terrible accuracy I mean could not even find a center of the holes it was punching to call it a group! So it sat in a closet until I read an article last week about using a pellet pen to load break action pellet rifles. well I got it today all I can say is that was the best 8 bucks I ever spent! They cite consistent seating depth in the breach but I think it is uniformly flaring out the skirt portion of the pellet for a solid consistent seating. The end result is a 1" group at 20 yards. I am absolutely astounded. Keep it simple stupid!

Nice. Love my PCP air rifle, my most fun gun. Ok, I said it.
I've taken hundreds of ground squirrels at my place.
VERY QUIET, so squirrels don't scatter when you shoot; can really pile them up.
Head shots out to 100yds with holdover mildot.
Here are 10 shots at 50 yds.
That squirrel was at 62 yds, right between the eyes.

I was about 5 years old when a kid in the neighborhood who must have been related to Hopalong had a birthday party guess who rolled up in a stagecoach? Yeah your name sake brother. That's a nice group, my 10-22 will do that with a 4x on it. This pelet gun would be about 3-4" at 50 yards.
