Q:I have a Beeman air rifle and the owners manual says to only use lead pellets.Will the Raptor PBA pellets damage the rifle bore?Asked on 8/21/2009 by John from Neenah WI
A:no not really just try them out and see..Answered on 10/16/2009 by clay from charleston, west virginia
A:No, they won't hurt the bore but they can hurt the guns tube, piston and seal. The lead warning is so you won't shoot steel BB's or steel darts thru it which will damage the rifling. A choked barrel is even more sensitive and steel will ruin it in one shot.
As for these pellets; remember the warning about dry firing? Well the lighter the pellet the closer it is to a dry fire condition. Example; cleaning pellets are the same as a dry fire, so always use a lead pellet with them. These PBA aren't that bad, but they are harder on the internals of the gun than heavier lead is.
You said Beeman but didn't mention model. An R1 or RX for example have choked barrels where a cheap china gun does not. For me that's where I'd draw the line, a real German gun isn't worth the risk, but use in a chinese gun is fine.
The light PBA will harm a more powerful non-German gun like the Ruger Magnum more than it will a weak Ruger Explorer because the damage from a dry fire is worse with a stronger spring.Answered on 2/25/2012 by Chevota from CA
