    Best place to buy 5MM/.20 Pellets??

    Where's the best place to buy 5MM/.20 Pellets??

    I was poking around in the back of a closet and found a "Sheridan Blue Streak" that shoots these creatures.

    naturally, I only have .17 (can't find the gun) and .22 (German Winchester)

    Looked online and they want a small fortune for those things, too much to just try the gun and see how it works.

    Thanks

    Grmps

    Amazon had some but they were 20$ or more for 500. Bit rich IMO. Nice however to see my money quadruplicating.
    400% growth in 5 years, wish I'd put a few thousand into them.
    I truly believe we need to get back to basics.

    Get right with the Lord.
    Get back to the land.
    Get back to thinking like our forefathers thought.

    Anyone that wants to use this, feel free. Spread it wide and far.

    Is the 11.42 Grains a good pellet or is there a reason I should pay more for the 13.73 gr??

    Air guns are like other guns. Never know what the barrel will like. For example, I am averaging groups under 1/2” at 25 yards (over 40 groups so far) with the cheapest Crosman pellet in my .22. I think they were $8/500...really cheap fun.

    Good luck.

    H&N used to make a match wadcutter wad for the 5mm, they shoot ridiculously well out of my Silver Streak.

    They come up occasionally on fleabay, I've scrounged every gun shop in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana and Wisconsin I've been in looking for them. I'm pretty sure I have enough to last me my lifetime but I'd still buy more just in case I find the Fountain of Youth.

    There were 3 of us shooting them in matches at the local gun club, all of them shot better than they had a right to with those pellets.

    Also, depending on the vintage Streak you've got, some versions required you to cock the trigger BEFORE trying to pump it up. Buddy bought one at a garage sale for $5 because it was "busted".

    He got it home and sure enough it would not pump up. Oiled the seals no difference. Figured it was $5 lost. Then cocked the bolt. Miracles of Miracles it pumped up beautifully.

    And depending on the vintage, newer ones were drilled and tapped for a Williams rear peep sight. Really helped with the aiming.

    Pretty sure this is it:
